On Friday, May 17th Promotions Director Scott Hunter and I traveled to the Leader Dogs for the Blind Training Center in Rochester Hills, MI to interview a puppy trainer as they picked up their 50th dog.  No trainer has ever worked with as many as 50, until now.

Nan Nellenbach of North Branch has been raising puppies since 1976.

Nellenbach enjoys helping others.  “We all have our independence and we take it for granted, and I think that as long as this helps someone, well, I’m willing to give.”

“I would advise future trainers to be consistent, be appropriate for bad behavior, as well as give them a lot of praise for good behavior, and have fun,” Nellenbach said.

When I asked if she would stop at 50, Nellenbach laughed and said, “Only if they make me!”
