Lenny has always been a dog lover, and knew early on that he wanted a career with dogs. He became a trainer with Suburban K9 in 2009, while still attending college at Northern Illinois University. Lenny quickly excelled as both a trainer and a student, eventually graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Marketing. Over the years he became an expert in dealing with difficult dogs and training off-leash.
Lenny’s background, coupled with his skills in training, allowed him to rise to the role of Director of our Suburban K9 Academy. His job involves the development and training of our managers, as well as training dogs! He also spends a lot of time improving our training program for all of our trainers. You will often see him on our other trainers’ appointments to ensure quality and 100% customer satisfaction!
His best buddy is named Scrunts, a mix breed that he rescued from Tails Humane Society. He also has a Corgi named Leia, which he will probably show you pictures of!
