About author

Kristina Lotz has loved animals her entire life. Her mom used to say “Kristina loves all animals and they all love her.” It was this special connection with pets that made her decide to become a Certified Professional Dog Trainer – Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA). She trains using only positive reinforcement methods and is an advocate for ending correction training and the use of harsh training tools on our best friends. When she is not training, she is writing. Kristina has written for the pet industry since 2009, writing about everything from training and behavior to DIY projects. She especially love to write about rescue stories. (Have one to share with me? Email me at Kristina@homelifemedia.com). Kristina has owned everything from horses and goats to guinea pigs and birds and of course, dogs and cats. She enjoys competing with her animals and has shown horses, dogs and even sheep. She is a member of the Association for Professional Dog Trainers (APDT) and the Dog Writers Association of America. She smartly married a vet technician and groomer, who keeps all of her fur kids (even those with hooves!) happy and heathy. Visit her website at www.afairytailhouse.com
