Matt Wlos grew up around computers and technology; his father was instrumental in creating the early course registration system for the University of Illinois. Having a computer and internet access in the home prior to any of his classmates he was able to create webpages and other basic computer programs while still in junior high. He pursued his childhood passion of working with technology and graduated with a degree in Business Computer Systems from Bradley University. After college he went to work for a billion dollar health care company as a programmer and project manager. He is an expert in automated document creation and turned down several offers to continue in that line of work.
Matt Wlos is a life-long dog owner and cannot remember a single time when he didn’t have a dog in his life. When he learned that his college friend Matt Covey was a dog trainer, he turned to him for help when adopting a new dog. After about a year of attending classes and spending all his free time around dogs, Matt joined Matt Covey as a trainer. From there the simple promise of being around dogs everyday was enough to pull him away from corporate technology.
Matt’s current role within the company is head of technology and operations. The role allows him to combine his love for dogs and his passion for computers. Although it doesn’t happen as much as he would like, Matt enjoys when he can get away from his desk and squeeze in an appointment with a client.
