Debbie Briggs

Debbie is thrilled to join the pack at Paws Unleashed! She is a MN native but she lived for many years in Los Angeles. There, she completed her dog training certification under Master Dog Trainer, Jaime VanWye. In addition to hundreds of hours in the classroom, Debbie has been actively working in the field since 2011. She was a regional manager for a large dog training franchise in Los Angeles where she taught basic obedience, agility, puppy classes, and more. She also helped organize and create dog friendly events for clients in the community and worked with countless rescues to help raise money through fundraising benefits. Debbie began working in the private sector in 2015 where she worked as a behavior specialist tackling tough issues like fear reactivity and aggression. She is a proud member of APDT and has been PetTech certified as well. She believes in science based training methods that promote trust and strong bonds with our furry friends. Connection, Consistency, and Communication are at the heart of what she teaches. She has been an avid dog lover all her life and cannot wait to meet you and your dog!
