—Theresa Botello- Behaviorist
Theresa was simply born with a special love for dogs. She was raised in Southern California with a large extended family that all shared and nurtured the philosophy of caring for, respecting and being responsible for the dogs that they made a part of the family.
Having been around dogs all her life and being so naturally drawn to them; it only made sense to find a niche in life that would allow her to do what she loves the most and to help enrich the lives of others and their dogs in the process.
Theresa began working as a professional
dog trainer in 1987. Over the years, she
has worked with 1000's of dogs of all
breeds and skill levels (and their people)
in group classes and private training situations
throughout the Orange County area.
She also has been published in Dog Fancy-Popular
Dog Magazine (2006) which has gained her the respect
from her peers, but even more important, Theresa has gained
the respect, trust and support from all of her students,
who have had the amazing opportunity to learn from her instruction.
Theresa currently resides in Orange County with her faithful boxer, Ace.
