Tammy I have been involved with dogs for as long as I can remember.  As a child, my dad  enlisted my assistance with taking our  Alaskan Malamute puppy to a group obedience  class.  Our time in class was very short-lived being as our puppy was extremely  unruly and not so friendly with other dogs.   Being a determined child, I continued working Nikki at home with knowledge from the few classes that we were able to attend.  As an adult, one of my very first dogs after leaving home, was a black Labrador/Rottweiler mix named Oscar.  Oscar was not the friendliest pup on the planet, he  growled at and tried to bite near every person that he met.  Knowing that  rehoming him into a *good* home was far from an option, I hired a trainer and  began my journey in dog training.  Although Oscar still maintained his over protective  nature, he became a wonderful member of our family amd I learned to control him in all situations.  Training taught him where  he fit into our family and gave him an understanding of what was acceptable  behavior and what behavior would not be tolerated.  Oscar was my first real stepping stone into dog training.  After acquiring my  second dog, a Labrador Retriever, “Gunner”, I dove head over heels into dog rescue.   In early 2004, my rescue organization, Southeast Texas Labrador Retriever  Rescue, Inc, received its 501(c)3, Non-Profit Status.  We became the first   reputable rescue organization in the Houston and surrounding areas, focused  solely on rescuing, rehabilitating, and adopting out, Labrador Retrievers from local  shelters.  Shortly after receiving our non-profit status, I started my journey into training  dogs for other individuals.  I attended an intense, hands-on dog training school to help fine tune my skills, and have not looked back since.  In 2016, I stepped away from assisting with TCK9’s day to day activities and accepted the position as Rescue Coordinator at the Montgomery County Animal Shelter.   Over the last year, I assisted in the placement of over 3k dogs and cats from the shelter and am now back full time at TCK9.   My experience working  with dogs from unknown backgrounds through rescue and the shelter has made me the well rounded,  compassionate trainer that I am today.  Dogs coming from backgrounds of abuse  or abandonment often times need a kind, patient hand to show them the way and  assist them in learning how to properly behave in order to keep a spot in a new or  soon to be home.
