Taylor Braddock

Taylor recently relocated to the Grand Rapids area and has been with K9 Academy International for 6 months. During her time here she has started her training apprenticeship under Nino Islamcevic. Beyond her training she works daily to ensure the health and safety of all daycare, boarding, and training dogs, as well as helping deliver a great experience to K9 Academy pet owners. Taylor has been exposed to caring for all kinds of animals, but from a very young age became interested in learning canine behaviors. Taylor became more involved with behavioral training with her Siberian husky Marley about 5 years ago. She later got her first German Shepherd Loki, was introduced to Schutzhund and was a part of the Cornhusker Schutzhund Club until she relocated to Grand Rapids. Taylor continues her training with Nino while she and Loki are looking forward to obtaining their BH next spring. Taylor also volunteered with Missouri German Shepherd Rescue where she fostered, trained and rehabilitated, neglected and abused German Shepherds.
