Tanya started out by training her hamsters at the age of 11 years old, eventually pursuing Veterinary Medicine. In the process of educating herself, she observed that the most prominent kind of abuse was the lack of training of dogs. After realizing that Veterinary Medicine was not her calling, she got led back to Los Angeles and entered the entertainment industry, all while training her own pets and offering friendly advice for many years. With the intersection of animal acting and teaching dog owners how to train their dogs and address behavioral issues, she found she had a gift in humorously and clearly explaining to people what it means to be a pack leader, to properly show love to their dogs and have a confident, cooperative relationship with their dog. Tanya now has a successful dog training business in Southern California.
