Marisa Welch

Marisa has always had a love for animals, especially dogs. She became a dog groomer in 2001, and is still going strong. In the field she has learned all types of dog behavior and maintenance. Marisa was also a member of Dog’s On Call, a pet therapy program with two of her dogs. They were involved in the READ program, helping kids learn to read by reading to dogs. The team also visited the UW campuses for finals week, bringing joy to students. Her love of training started with her spirited and sometimes difficult mutt, Melody, who lead her to DBF. She’s taught training classes with DBF for several years with a break in between. She has owned 7 dogs in her lifetime so far, her recent additions are beagles.

Positive training with positive results!
