kYM sODERHOLM: tRAINING cENTER gUARDIAN
Kym is the kindest, gentlest soul you’ve ever met. Her love for all things knows no bounds, and it is readily apparent in her day to day actions.
Kym serves as the training center guardian, living on site and providing our dogs that may be temporarily (or in some rare cases permanently) housed at the center the care, love and attention they need to feel safe and secure. She assist with implementing training plans and behavior modification protocols, and oversees that the facility is kept up to our strict standards (oh, let’s not lie - she taught us everything we know). From using organically sourced materials to ensuring that we have earth and dog friendly chemicals, Kym is the brains of it all. And she does this all while running her own kennel, K9 Retreat and Spa Findlay. Kym is always ready and willing to help with whatever Pawsible throws at her, and has yet to meet a dog she couldn’t charm the hairs off of.
