Julie Madison has been passionately in love with working with dogs since the time she was very young. Julie’s first dog was a rescue German Shepherd/pit mix named Ralph with intense leash reactivity to other dogs. After adopting Ralph and keeping him, the animal shelter she adopted him from allowed her to work with dogs at the age of 15. During her 3yrs of volunteering at that shelter, she put in over 300 hours rehabilitating, training, and socializing a variety of dogs. Her experience has only grown since then and she has experience with training dogs and working with a variety of needs from housebreaking, intense leash reactivity, resource guarding, and basic and advanced obedience. She is a certified Pet Trainer and Foundation Dog Trainer and is a firm believer in working the dog in front of her. In her spare time, she is the secretary of Forgotten Coast K9, raising funding for veterans who need service dogs. 

Her services include the Top Tier K9 2-4 week Board and Train Programs, as well as follow-up private or extended Board and Trains depending on the dog’s needs. The Board and Train will address issues including but not limited to:
