Meet the Staff...
Leah Russell has been a part of the ABC family since early 2014. Leah’s genuine love of animals, energetic work ethic and desire to keep the dogs happy and active makes her the perfect addition to our staff. Leah will play fetch with the dogs for hours and you will often see her cuddling the dogs or helping them build their confidence by teaching them to climb the play equipment. Leah also assists with grooming and training classes. When she is not at ABC, Leah works as the assistant Animal Control Officer of Old Lyme. She is certified in Pet CPR and Disaster Response, and has attended numerous conferences taught by esteemed trainers such as Pia Silvani, Sue Sternberg and Michael Shikashio. We are proud to have her as a part of the team at ABC, and cannot wait to see what the future has in store for her here!
Jeremy started his adventure in the pet industry with us here at ABC in September of 2018. He came to us with knowledge and experience with rescues, pet sitting, and horses! We value how sweet he is with your dogs in the yard and how eager he is willing to learn with assisting obedience classes. Jeremy has two rescues, a 13 year old blood hound named Otis and a 6 year old cairn terrier mix named Pepsi. When he's not here at ABC you can catch him hitting the trails and hiking through the woods.. Jeremy continues to study dog behavior and language and even hopes to become a trainer himself!
