Kim Paciotti is training puppies to save people’s lives. This once Chef left the corporate world after the brutal economy in 2009 resulted in her being laid off. In a strange twist of fate the best thing that could have happened to here was getting laid off and at the same time her life path took a major turn when a dog trainer told her that she should put down her own dog at just 10 months old because he was “untrainable and dangerous.”
Kim proved that dog trainer wrong by researching the puppy’s mind and has turned that research into a science and is now saving the world one puppy at a time. She’s the Founder of Training Canines in Statesville, NC and has built her business around her love of dogs and the science behind how puppies learn.
“Don’t ever give up, its there and you will find it. We’re only here one time and we all have a God given gift and talent. You have to find what yours is and once you do you have to go with it because if you don’t you’re not doing yourself or the world any justice.”
