Kira is Wonder Puppy’s newest edition, joining the team in 2016. Her passions include working with the herding, sporting, and working breeds, and she has experience in competition obedience and agility with her own dogs. Kira has been working with dogs since her teenage years when her pups, Opus, a senior Beagle, and Brody, an Australian Cattle Dog, inspired her to learn more about canine body language and effective interspecies communication. More recently, she enjoyed working with goats on commercial farms before moving back home to Portland and building a career working with dogs. Kira now lives in SE Portland with her partner, a school of fish, and their two canine companions - a sweet Pointer mix, Dax and an eager Miniature American Shepherd, Bear.
