How do you become a doodle expert?

Corinne Gearhart, also known as The Doodle Pro™, is a professional dog trainer specializing in poodles and doodles who has become internationally recognized for her expertise in the breed. Through her successful podcast, courses offered by the Doodle Pro Academy, and the membership program of the Doodle Pro Society, pet owners learn more about training and caring for their pets. This includes science-based, positive reinforcement training methods, tips to reduce common problems, and advice on socialization, grooming, and allergies. The goal of all these services is to empower pet owners with the education, knowledge, and skills to be responsible and successful breeders of doodles.
Corinne made the decision over the last few years to sell her own Denver-based dog walking and pet sitting business and niche down into her Doodle specialty. She has a lot of input about the challenges that a pet business owner can face and the rewards that can come!
