Tom Cygnar has been associated with Pets Lifeline (PLL) for over 10 years, serving as a dog handler, past member of the Board of Directors and over the past 3 years as assistant dog trainer for the Family Dog 1 and Family Dog 2 classes.
Tom’s first encounter with dog training came over 20 years ago in Colorado, when he started to train his Siberian Husky’s for his first sled dog team. He later moved on to be the puppy team trainer for one of the top sled dog racing kennels in the USA. Tom had a 10 year career in sled dog racing, three of which he was ranked in the top 10 racers in the USA with his 6 dog team. He also had a co-starring role with his wife in a Discovery Channel- Animal Planet segment featuring the Siberian Husky breed.
Tom now lives in Glen Ellen with his wife and three dogs; a senior citizen racing husky from his sled dog days, a Hurricane Katrina lab–pointer rescue from PLL, and a recent addition, a lab-beagle mix from Colorado.
Tom’s goal for those taking his classes is to help you understand your dog: your dog’s needs, your dog’s breed tendencies, and understanding how your dog communicates. Together, we will work on skills that will lead to stress free living with your dog, and years and years of companionship.
