Sally Montrucchio has been a service dog training director for over 20 years. Her experience includes psychiatric service dogs for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI); mobility; seizure; autism; hearing. In 2012 Sally Montrucchio founded Next Step Service Dogs, Inc. to implement a new flagship program to serve military men and women who would benefit from the use of a service dog for PTSD, TBI, and mobility challenges, and, also for those military men and women who would benefit from a career training service dogs for their fellow warriors. She made training through games a hall mark of her programs because happy dogs and happy clients give a highly successful outcome. Dog owners and pet dog trainers can easy adjust her games to their own needs and classes.
