GabbyGabby Ramsey is outgoing, bubbly and loves learning new things like figure skating, inline skating and foreign languages and cultures just to name a few. Since she was tiny, she always knew she wanted to work with animals. Gabby worked as a vet tech for a year before growing into an accomplished groomer over a six year career, during this time she gained exposure to other areas of the dog world including dog shows, show grooming, etc. As she gained experience she realized she wanted to work more closely with humans and their pets to ensure each had clear communication and understanding with the other. With that goal in mind, Gabby attended Tarheel Canine school for dog trainers, living on school grounds during her six month Master Trainer course and graduating with her certification in training tracking, detection, bite work and basic and advanced obedience. Her experience there was life changing has been working dogs and pets alike ever since!
