Meet JoAnn Bluth – CDT IACP, Master Chandler Dog Trainer ACABC
New to the valley since 1999, but no stranger to dog training, JoAnn began her career in Pennsylvania at an AKC sanctioned dog school. A psychology major and an executive in the travel industry, JoAnn left the corporate world in favor of the world of dogs and training.

JoAnn is a contributor to the Arizona Republic.
