Kati Del Pozo is originally from Toledo, Ohio but has been living in the Chicago area for about 17 years and now resides in Gurnee, IL. Her love and passion for dogs began at a young age when her grandparents brought home a Cocker Spaniel puppy for her family on Christmas morning. She’s always had family dogs in the household, including three Samoyeds, three Chihuahuas, and of course their very much loved Cocker Spaniel. It was a full house of fun, training, and lots of hair!
Kati spent about 20 years in the restaurant industry and wanted to explore a new path which led her to dog grooming. She was a dog groomer for a year and a half and enjoyed learning about dog behavior, temperament, and all of the different personalities! Making them look cute was a plus too!! Kati and her husband have a rescue dog named Cassius. He has been a huge part of their lives from 10 months old. They had their hands full when they first adopted Cassius, but with patience, understanding, and training, 6 years has gone by and he has turned out to be such a good boy.
Between her varied experiences with dogs and the people skills she built over the past 20 years in the restaurant industry, Kati figured why not mix the two with a dog training career? Kati strives to work with owners and their dogs to give them both the opportunity to live their best lives and build that wonderful relationship and companionship. In Kati’s spare time, she loves to sing, go to concerts, travel, and loves to explore different restaurants and cuisine. And of course, she makes time for all of the kisses, playing, and cuddling she can with Mr. Cassius.
