Amy O’Donnell

Dog Trainer/Kennel Technician/Front Office

Amy O’Donnell brings to Performance K9 Training & Boarding extensive medical experience with an in-depth nursing background in OBGYN and Narcotics Treatment. While she worked her way through high school and college as a dog grooming assistant and kennel attendant, caring for animals has always held a special place in her heart.

Amy is first to admit that while she found nursing incredibly rewarding over the last nine years, it was never her true calling. Her sterling history on patient-centered care now has a new focus on animal-centered care.

Her love for animals prompted Amy to make a career change. In tandem to enrolling in the Animal Behavior College for Dog Obedience Training, Amy also joined the esteemed group of professionals at Performance K9 Training & Boarding.

Amy holds the philosophy that a well-trained dog is less likely to end up in a shelter and stay in their forever home — she has a calling to play a part in that journey.  Amy is honored and excited to be part of the Performance K9 Training Team.
