Christie joined our team as many of Ruffgers’ best trainers do; they start as clients.  However, Christie came in with a whole lot of love for dogs, and a very strong training background for her two miniature schnauzers.  Spending time at Ruffgers only reinforced her love for dogs, and training dogs, and in 2018 she became an AKC Evaluator.  Ruffgers was so pleased and excited to have Christie join our team as our head trainer for our Bonita Springs Campus.  Christie continues to expand her knowledge, as she is a member of the APDT and is currently working towards her CPDT-KA certification.  
During her time with Ruffgers, she’s grown her four-footed family by two, adding another miniature schnauzer and a miniature golden doodle to her pack, both of which were rescued dogs.  We are thrilled to have Christie as part of our team, and know our clients will benefit from her experience and knowledge.
