Kira grew up in a small town in the Pacific Northwest. Growing up, they always had a fascination with animals, from watching Steve Irwin, to their first word literally being “cat”. From a young age they knew that they wanted to work with animals if they could.
Following high school, they immediately got a job at a pet hotel caring for dogs and cats while their pet parents were away. After a few years, they moved on to dog walking/sitting in order to get out more and have more time for personal activities. They enjoyed spending time with the pups in the great outdoors and spending nights with them in their homes.
Finally in 2021, they moved from the Seattle area down to Austin, following their older sister’s move a few years prior. Once here, they decided to continue their career with dogs, though in a more active role. They had watched the dog trainers at their previous jobs and loved how they helped the pet parents and their pets grow and learn. Working for Suburban K9, they hope to be able to provide that same care and help for many pups and people to come!
