Chris Martinese

Chris Martinese is a Navy veteran with years of experience professionally training dogs. He has grown up around dogs but never thought he would ever make a career out of it. During his medical retirement, he was given the opportunity to intern with a local dog trainer and soon learned this was something he would make a career out of. From the year-long internship, he furthered his education by attending various schools and seminars to learn as many training techniques and philosophies as possible. Chris and his wife Jenna now work together full time and believe all dogs can learn to become confident and obedient members of the family; they live to bridge the gap between owner and dog.
