Meet The Pack!
This is where it all started!
Dawn Rennie HBIC
I was born with a need to save animals and help people. My training started at a very young age while growing up in the country surrounded by animals of all kinds. Growing up my best friends were my animals, they were so loyal and never judged me. I grew up with learning difficulties that made me a bit of a social outcast, my animals made me normal, they gave me hope. Over the past 48 years I have built a lifetime of training dogs and specialize in working with people to better understand their canines behavior and how to coexist. I have trained thousands of dog owners and their dogs and each one has a special spot in my heart. When I lost my dog Enzo I needed a change, so I created Enzo’s Acres. A place where we could all come together and without judgement or fear, we could create a community based on respect and loyalty to our dogs. Enzo’s is a safe place to train your dog, through love and leadership. I approach every client as I would hope a trainer/coach would approach me, with truth, honesty and loyalty. I never imagined Enzo’s would grow the way it has, and I am truly honored to call you all my family.
Now it’s time to meet your Amazing Enzo’s Pack!
DJ — The Clutch Master
DJ joined our pack in early 2018 to help lead our front office team! His personal connection to our clients is uncanny. He understands that we are truly in the business of serving people and that is his life mission.
Masha — Head-Trainer
Most of you know Masha from our go-homes and classes! But she is so much more. She touches every dog that is trained here. She has been part of our team since 2015! I don’t know how Enzo’s would be without Masha. She started training at a young age, has traveled the world and is now a permanent resident of the pacific northwest.
Ash — Lead Trainer
Ash is our newest and youngest trainer but joined our team with over 4 years professional experience in handling aggressive dogs. She knew at a young age that working with animals was a passion. A native of the Washington Ash brings a fresh, young outlook to our pack. If your dog trains with us, chances are Ash lead the training.
Karen — Group Class, CGC and Rally Educator, and Lead Trainer
Karen has been with us since early spring 2017 she comes to us with over 20 plus years of training experience. Karen quickly fit in and brings a great leadership quality to our pack. Karen teaches many classes, including our puppy obedience, beginning companion obedience, Rally, CGC, Relationship and Reactive dog Advanced Groups. She is also a lead trainer, and has a special ability in connecting with our clients. Karen has owned and trained numerous breeds and currently has Roulette, Gordo and Secret, oh ya she has Darren too!
Bree — “The Socializer” – Assistant
Bree has been with us almost 3 years and is truly the dogs favorite! Every pack needs a “fun” one, and Bree is ours. She is a hard working woman who has a passion to bring a smile to everyone’s face, we are lucky to have Bree on our team!
Cherine — Facilities Specialist and Dog Guru!
Ms Cherine has a long history in the dog care industry and joined us in Spring of 2017. She quickly earned her lifelong roll as the dog whisperer. I don’t care if she only met a dog one time 3 years ago, Cherine will remember that dog as if she saw it yesterday. She has an extraordinary way of connecting with dogs, I even think my dog sometimes wants to go home with her. Cherine makes us all feel special and the dogs too!
We first met Nicki when she adopted a President puppy, Franklin from us in 2015. Then months later she started working for us. Nicki started at the bottem, having very little experience and has worked her way up to trainer. Currently Nicki oversees our returning boarding and enhanced boarding dogs, many of them she trained years ago.
Bailey — Assistant Trainer
Jenna — Assistant
Emily — Cleaning Specialist
Susan — Mema, The one who really started it all, Dawn’s Mom
Tom — The Other-man surrounded by all the women in charge 🙂
I guess when you marry a crazy animal woman, you become the crazy animal man!
