Janell grew up in Perrysburg, OH. She attended Penta’s Small animal care program in high school and found her career choice that fulfilled her love of dogs. She then attended National K-9 Dog Trainer School in Columbus, Ohio. After graduating from National K-9 she had an opportunity to train dogs in Austin, Texas. Janell relocated and trained dogs as well as worked as a Kennel Manager for the past four years. Unable to travel home to visit family due to the COVID-19 pandemic, she decided it was time to move back to the Toledo, Ohio area. She returned to Ohio with her 5 dogs, Zena, Mabel, Trixie, Daphnee and Nugget. She looks forward to using her dog training skills in the Assistance Dogs program at The Ability Center.
