AJ has been part of the Got Sit dog training team since March of 2014 and has always been in the animal world from growing up on a farm lifestyle in Lake Stevens to working at Bridges Pets for 6 years helping customers with reptiles and fish. AJ joined Got Sit because he knew he wanted to stay in the world of helping humans and animals coexist and what he loves most about being a trainer is teaching humans how to be the best they can be to meet their dog’s needs and most of all have a positive relationship as we know that good reliable dogs get to have more fun and in return get more freedom to be a dog. AJ’s dog “kids” Cleopatra (Great Dane Mastiff) and Garnett (Golden retriever St.Bernard) have made a huge impact on his life and he wouldn’t have it any other way. Both of them were last of their litters so he didn’t have any options and they were stuck with him. But, getting them at around 5 months they came with their insecurities and adjustments they had to figure out together. In return it made their bond strong - they keep AJ in line and together they meet each other’s needs through love, play and companionship.
