Tabitha was born and raised in a small town in Ontario, Canada. During high school Tabitha she started rescuing dogs and cats, obtaining veterinary care, and finding homes for them.

in August of 2008 she started the CVDC (http://www.cvdogclub.com/) to provide an affordable fully force free option that is scientifically proven to be more successful than any other methods with less owner output and more consistency to the dogs and their humans of our valley.

Tabitha now owns the CVDC as well as the daycare, indoor dog park, dog training, pet retail, and staff development of the Dog Park Services at Venus De Fido in Palm Desert (http://venusdefido.com/)
