Christine Hopkins has had a lifelong love affair with dogs. Upon finally having dogs of her own and volunteering with both bullmastiff and Airedale rescue, she realized her desire to train dogs and their people full-time.

This quest brought her to train under Martin Deeley (The Florida Dog Trainer).
