Christine Baker

"I love helping families to enjoy their dog again - they’re supposed to be man’s best friend, after all, not his ball & chain! There’s nothing like watching two different species learn to speak each other’s languages.”

Jessie Sanders

“I love to help people understand our canine companions better, from their physical body signals to what’s motivating their behavior. There are a ton of ways our dogs try to communicate with us, and life with them is so much more fun when we take the time to learn their language.”

Jessie Sanders has worked in the animal care industry for just shy of a decade, spending a majority of that time as Lead of the Behavior Department at Charleston Animal Society, where she was fortunate enough to work with both C.C. and Christine! While in this field, she had the opportunity to participate in various internships, seminars, and mentorships, increasing her understanding of canine behavior, and gaining a myriad of skills. At WDU, Jessie assists in training classes and social media management.
