Veronica Boutelle, M.A., began her professional life as an educator before switching careers to dog training. As the SF/SPCA’s Director of Behavior and Training, she drew from her background as a teacher educator and curriculum developer, her training experience, and her experience in business to support a staff of trainers, academy students, and interns in their quests for skills development, program design, and professional growth. In so doing she found that her love was working with and supporting people who work with dogs.
Returning to the private sector, Veronica recognized the need for an organization that would support dog professionals working in the field. The result is dogTEC.
