About the Author








Hi! I’m Carissa, a twenty-something dog mom navigating life’s struggles one day at a time. I started this blog to connect with other dog lovers, share my struggles with my reactive mini Aussie, Penny, and give a voice to those dogs you can’t just run up to and pet on walks.

When I’m not writing or researching reactive dog training information, you can find me:

  • Making an abundance of french press coffee
  • Watching some sort of Bravo reality TV
  • Or, more likely working as a marketer
