Stephanie Duca ~ Trainer

Stephanie completed our two year apprenticeship program back in 2014 and is available for Private sessions and Group Obedience Classes. Stephanie has excellent communication skills, perfected through the years, raised with her five siblings. For over twenty one years she ran her own successful furniture refinishing business. She knows how important customer satisfaction is and how to keep the communication positive through out the relationship. She is the proud parent of an adult son that served overseas in the United States Air force. Over the years she has had more  'rescues' than she can count (not really she remembers them all). She worked on their physical, emotional and training needs. All for the purpose of making them more adoptable and finding them their forever homes. It was through these experiences with all these dogs, including a challenging wolf hybrid dog named Fletcher, that she came to realize her affirmation of working with dogs.   Stephanie was ready for some changes in her life and wanted to include her love of working with dogs and of course their partners. Stephanie had spent much time as a student through those years here at The Right Paw, so it seemed the natural 'next step' to go through our apprenticeship program. We are so happy she did!  Stephanie recently said goodbye to her beloved Pug Max and her Boxer Gus who have passed over the Rainbow bridge. Her newest 'project' is Tuka, a male Doberman (yes another 'rescue') and her Old English Bull dog Peggy!  Stephanie is grateful for the support she receives from her loving husband Jimmy and her very large family. Stephanie is a certified tester through the AKC , a proud member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers and is constantly working on furthering her education through many training seminars and clinics for dog professionals! She is currently working on collecting titles on her dogs in the Sport of Dogs....Stephanie we are proud to call you part of The Right Paw Pack!....
