Christiana Stoner


I’m Christiana Stoner and I’m from Grand Rapids, Michigan. According to my family, I have been extremely interested in anything fluffy, furry, and feathered since I was two years old. We’ve always had dogs growing up and I began riding horses at age 7. Dogs and horses will always be a huge part of my life. I began my animal career path as an exam room technician at an animal hospital. While the medical side was fascinating, I realized I wanted to dive deeper into dog behavior and psychology. I love the challenge that dog training presents. There are so many different techniques and styles and it’s so satisfying being able to find the correct way to get through to a dog. I’ve always been drawn to animals that need a little extra help to be truly understood. I have three fur children myself, Charles, a 12 year old Miniature Poodle, Snoop, a 1 year old Pitbull, and Birdie, a 1 year old Havanese Mix. I spend my free time horseback riding, specifically dressage, on my handsome Apollo, a Friesian cross.

Jennifer Jamieson


I’m Jennifer Jamieson and I’m from New Smyrna Beach, Florida. My interest in animals, and love for dogs, started very early in my life. I always used to make power points to try to convince my parents to let me get my next pet. When I wasn’t with my own animals, I would visit the animal shelter with my mom and cousin just to play with the dogs that had been there for a while. In 2015, I was finally ready to adopt my very own dogs: two black lab mixes named Mally and Blaze. They have been by my side through thick and thin these last 7 years and are my absolute rocks. I was first hired at CANIS as a kennel attendant and quickly realized it was something I needed to be a part of. I loved the way the trainers formed real bonds and communicated with the dogs so well. There are so many dogs out there who aren’t living life to their fullest simply because they don’t have good relationships with humans; I realized that training teaches dogs trust and communication, it could even save a dogs life. Changing the relationships dogs have with the world and people around them for the better is truly something special. 

Carter Biddle


I’m Carter Biddle and I’m originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota. From as early as I can remember, I’ve been around and fascinated by dogs. I used to love running around and playing in the woods with one of my childhood dogs, Sadie. Man and dog have such a powerful relationship that becomes so much stronger through training. My first brush with training came when asked to help my roommate with their two miniature schnauzers. After helping them through their behavioral problems, neighbors began asking me to help coach them with their dogs. What started out as a part time hobby quickly became a full time addiction! I think about dog training as a way to enhance the communication in a dog and parent relationship and it really does make a world of difference. 

Damara Ganyo

Client Services

I’m Damara Ganyo and I’m from Santa Clarita, California. Like many of us, I have always been a lover of animals (especially dogs). From helping out at rescues through Girlscouts, or taking care of my own childhood dogs, I have always been fascinated with and invested in the wellbeing of the little furry hearts that surround us. Starting off in the dog grooming industry, I developed a passion for providing proper care to dogs and helping pet parents do the same. After departing from grooming, I found an interest in training; Dog training and education is a way for us to step outside of our human-centric minds and bridge the communication gap between us and our dogs. Dog training is not just training dogs, but training dog parents to be the best human they can be for their fur baby; There is something very special about that.

Kris Hernandez


I’m Kris Hernandez and I’m from Bakersfield, California. Since I was a child, I’ve had an extreme love for animals but dogs have always been my passion. I treat every dog I come across as if they were my own. My first dog was a retired police K9, an amazing black and mahogany Rottweiler named Norman. I now have 2 dogs, a Rottweiler named Chula and an Olde English Bulldog named Blue. I believe every dog should have a chance to live a happy and safe life. Too many dogs are not offered the guidance to keep them from making dangerous decisions, to keep them out of shelters, or to keep them from being euthanized; I decided I wanted to be a dog trainer because of this. It is imperative that dogs be trained, especially in puppyhood, to help mold their personality and behavior to make sure they behave well and stay safe. Training dogs forms an important bond and understanding between man and his best friend.

Rachel Laird

Administrative Assistant

I’m Rachel Laird and I’m from Los Angeles, California. I’ve been involved in the pet world since high school, starting in the pet store industry, then in 2012 discovering the dog training industry. I grew up with Dobermans and loved sharing with people who thought they were intimidating just how kind, gentle, and loving they were. Working in this industry has taught me so much about both animal and human behavior and showed me just how connected we really are. I truly love connecting with our clients and figuring out the best ways that we can help them.
