Christine is a native of Colorado, raised in Buena Vista. She moved to Golden in 1984 and after working in the business field, found her true calling working with animals. She worked for a veterinary hospital for 14 years where her
passion for animal behavior grew. She then went out on her own to open a doggie daycare /training facility which specialized in early socialization of puppies. In 2007 she began working with Drs. Hetts and Estep. She effectively resolves common as well as complex behavior problems.
