Debora spent most of her working years as a radio D.J., and founded “Wednesday’s Wagger” in her capacity as an on air personality. “Wednesdays Wagger ” was a way for her to combine her love of animals with her career as a Disc Jockey. Through Wednesday’s Wagger, Debora worked with the SPCA, The Humane Society and other rescue groups to find good loving homes for dogs & cats whom had been given up by their families, abused, neglected or found as strays. This radio station feature quickly became an obsession with Debora. She found most dogs were given up due to behavior issues. This is when her mission changed. She then set out to help train rescue dogs, to be sure the dog would be placed in a permanent and loving environment. It was through this endeavor that Debora first became interested in Full time Dog Training, and Pet Care.
In 2000 Debora gave birth to a beautiful baby boy and decided to give up her radio career and focused her efforts on pet care & her son. Debora worked as a Trainer for K-9 USA for several years, and then started her own company Canine Country in 2005. What started as a small Pet Sitting & Dog Training company has now grown to also include: Pet First Aid & CPR Classes, Problem Solving Clinics, Canine Good Citizen & Starr Puppy Classes and Evaluations, In the Home Pet Sitting, The RUFF Reading Program, HSTT Education Programs, and Canine Country Camp, a Cage Free Dog Day Care and Overnight Boarding Facility. Debora is the Canine Country team leader, a Therapy Dog Handler, a Dog Trainer, a Pet 1st Aid and CPR Instructor and Specializes in Canine Socialization. Debora believes that a well-balanced, well socialized, well fed and unconditionally loved dog, is a happy dog! Debora’s family has two Dogs, Thunder (Black Lab X) & Stormy (Retriever/Aussie X).
