Devene Godau, CPDT-KA

Devene obtained a BA in Journalism from Michigan State University and spent several years working in marketing. However, when she adopted her first greyhound (who came with some behavior challenges), she began researching ways to modify her problem behavior and found help with a local dog trainer.

Devene lives in Michigan with her husband and kids, as well as 4 dogs, 2 cats and a tortoise.
