Get to know Christina...

Certified Professional Dog Trainer, Knowledge Assessed

Christina de Juan, Ph.D., CPDT-KA, LSHC-S, owner and lead trainer at Luna Service Dogs Inc., has always had her roots in science, grounded by logic and reason. With over 10 years experience training dogs, she is still the eternal student: attending webinars and workshops to keep up with the latest training techniques, reading studies about canine scent work, behavior, and cognition, and most importantly learning from every dog and client she works with. It really is true, every dog has something to teach us if we are open to learning.
