Meet Cindy Pixler:
"I started my journey when I got Buddha my Labrador retriever. I started attending training with him at Pet Smart. I also started attending Animal Behavior College online in their Dog obedience program. While attending training classes at Pet Smart the trainer I was working with was part of a program called Wings-and-Warriors. She asked me and a few others in Pet Smart training to be part of Wings-and-Warriors. We then worked on growing the organization and adding others. Wings-and-Warriors is an organization that helps train service dogs for veterans. I helped in expanding the Western slope chapter of Wings-and-Warriors. I trained dogs through them and Finished my dog obedience certificate at Animal Behavior College. Since then I have separated myself from Wings-and-Warriors. When I found Above the Cloud Siberian Service Dogs not only did I find Yoda I also started helping AKC CGC certify the Huskies. My focus area is training service dogs for autism and mobility/stability training. "-Cindy P. (970) 712-6800 Pixler.Cindy@gmail.com
