Daniele Turner is co-owner of Club K9 at The Ranch as well as serving as the Operations Manager and overseeing the dog training program. She became accredited as a dog trainer in 2007 and prior to joining Club K9 at The Ranch, she was a Pet Smart trainer for nine years. She is certified in Pet Tech CPR and First Aid Certified.
Daniele brings additional management experience since she previously worked in the corporate sector for over 15 years. With experience in supervision, training, food safety handling, and 24/7 operations, she is well prepared to handle her varied responsibilities.
She brings first hand experience to her dog training since she owns four dogs. She has two senior dachshunds- Maddie and Jack, an Old English Bulldog named Rocky, and a rescue mix named Goose. Goose will greet you when you visit the ranch since he also serves as employee mascot.
As a lifelong animal lover, she also has a long association with The Ranch. She has owned and ridden horses for 20 years, and started riding at The Ranch over a decade ago where she rode, boarded, trained and spent every spare moment there with her horse.
Her love for dogs and her vast experience with hundreds of animals has made Daniele an exceptional trainer. Daniele's affinity with animals is part of what makes your dog's experience at Club K9 at the Ranch so special.
