         Chris DeBoard

The Dog Trainer Boarding and Training Facility was founded by Chris DeBoard and is the culmination of a strong desire, from childhood, to help as many dogs as possible stay in their homes and be adopted out of dog shelters.

In line with that desire, Chris' first dog, Heidi, a Terrier/Schnauzer mix, came from the Franklin County Humane Society when she was 8 years old. When, in just a few days, she developed a respiratory infection the Humane Society offered to let Chris pick out another dog. He refused, nursed her back to health and got to spend the next 15 years with her. Thus began a lifetime of trying to help dogs and of animal advocacy in general.

His next dog, Juno, a Husky, also came from Franklin County. As a young adult, Chris decided to seek out professional training for Juno. He turned to one of his close friends from high school, Craig Richardson of Richardson K-9, who is a professionally trained and certified dog trainer who received his training at an internationally respected facility - National K-9 School for Dog Trainers. Craig taught Chris how to train Juno and immediately he realized the immeasurable value of training for both a dog and an owner.

Over the next 20 years Chris has helped thousands of dogs (including eight more of his own) and similarly formalized his training education at the same respected training academy.
