A native Floridian, Zachary discovered his love for animals at a young age. He took any opportunity to be around animals which led him to begin horseback riding and volunteer work. Through volunteering he was hired as a barn manager at a therapeutic riding facility and learned many skills necessary to manage the horses, volunteers and facility effectively. Not only did he gain managerial experience from this job but Zachary was able to witness first hand the connection participants had with the horses and the healing it brought them. In college he worked as a kennel technician and gained experience working with dogs while pursuing his degree. After graduating from the University of North Florida with a BS in Biology, Zachary wanted a career that would incorporate his love for animals and the connection they have with their owners. Therefore, Suburban K9 was the perfect fit as it allows him to connect people and their dogs through expert training.
