Joy has had a passion for animals since childhood and when she got her first dog as an adult she strived to get her Pomeranian Hailey well trained. She trained her so well that when she had to move to New York for a job her mother took Hailey in and didn't want to give her up!
When Joy and Nicholas married and wanted to expand their furry family they looked into adopting a Pit Bull type dog, that's when they met Billy! Billy at two years of age came with all the affection in the world, but he also came with Separation Anxiety like they had never seen before! One fateful day Billy jumped out of the car and ran across the road and Joy and Nicholas watched in horror as he almost got hit by a car! It was at that same moment when they met their neighbor, who just happened to be a dog trainer! After some time and influence, Joy convinced Nicholas to go to training himself to become a dog trainer (with Billy in tow). After completion of the program they sat down and designed Get It Done Dog Training so they could teach other dog owners/lovers how to be effective leaders of their own pack!
