Nick Smoots is a Chicago native and an avid dog lover! He was surrounded by pets all his life and has always had a soft spot for animals! Last year, he adopted a two-year-old Pitbull mix named Juno.
Nick discovered his passion for working with animals when Juno went through training with Suburban K9. He saw a complete 180 in her behavior in a short amount of time as the training methods helped her overcome issues such as reactivity.
Not only was he impressed with the training program, but also the family-oriented atmosphere of the company! Nick hopes that he can help break the stigma that shelter dogs have insurmountable behavioral problems. He aspires to do what he can to ensure that those pups aren’t returned to shelters!
In his free time, you can find Nick traveling or checking out the local music scene. You can also find him searching for local eateries that have dog-friendly patio options. Nick is enjoying this career path and is looking forward to many more years of helping dogs live their best life possible!
