Debra Lockhart – CPDT-KA has been a life-long animal lover and had been working with All About the Dog since 2018, first as a student and then as a trainer. She served on the Boards of both Humane Fort Wayne and the Fort Wayne Pit Bull Coalition and has been a passionate volunteer for both organizations and the HFW Pet Promises program. Debra and her dog Julius (pictured) are also a Certified Therapy Dog team through The Alliance of Therapy Dogs.
Debra had been through multiple classes with her dog Ray and hoped she could translate that learning to her dog Julius, but it just didn’t work without a guide. Going through official training with Julius is what set Debra on the path to becoming a Certified trainer herself. Learning to communicate better with her dog and to build that bond is what made a huge difference in her relationship with Julius which is why Debra enjoys helping dogs and their people forge a deep and trusting connection through training. She is looking forward to helping you build that bond with your furry friend.
