Amy Ammen: The Early Years

In 1975, Amy got her first dog (a Siberian Husky named Tess) whose youthful obstinacy launched her career as a dog trainer. Initial puppy love soon morphed into complete exasperation. Even though Tess seemed untrainable, Amy enrolled her in obedience school.

Who would have guessed Tess would eventually become a terrific companion and one of the few High in Trial UD titled huskies in history? Four years later (at the age of 15) Amy began instructing classes and private training at all levels (and eventually trained dogs while boarding). In 1982, Amy opened Amiable Dog Training.
