Kish is a Licensed Veterinary Technician and the founder of 4 Luv Of Dog Rescue. She has a  deep compassion for dogs and wants to help them in any capacity she can. She founded 4 Luv of dog rescue in 2005 and since then the rescue has taken in and rehomed over 5,000 dogs.

Kish is very proud that the rescue has grown so much due to the efforts of many volunteers and community support. As a Veterinary Technician and a rescue volunteer Kish realized that many dogs are rehomed or euthanized due to behavioral issues. Kish wants to help these dogs and their owners so she has focused her education on dog training and behavior modification. She prides herself on keeping current on the most progressive, force free and science based training methods. By founding and working full time at Down Dog Studio Kish hopes to help many more owners and their dogs live happier lives together.
