From the time Diane was a young child, her fascination with, and love of dogs, was overwhelming. When other girls played with dolls, she only wanted animals. Unlike her peers, Diane's favorite game was crawling around on her hands and knees playing "Puppy." While she persued a traditional course of education in communications and psychology, in the end her life centers around canines. From the beginning Diane loved to teach, (as a teenager she taught horseback riding and tutored friends in academics,) so it’s not surprising that teaching other people to train their dogs comes naturally to her.
