She grew up in Apache Junction but now resides in Gilbert. If Clarissa looks familiar it’s because she is dog mom to two fear rehab hounds, Indy and Sam. Her and her husband first joined the TLDSH family as training clients, November of 2015 after they adopted Indy from a local rescue. Indy was extremely fearful but after hard work they were able to help him embrace what it means to be a dog. One year later, they were notified of another fearful hound in Round Valley, AZ, so they packed up the car and drove to the New Mexico border to bring home Sam.
Since then, Clarissa and her husband have welcomed two adorable little humans, Emmett who is 2.5 years old and Sloane 8 months old! In her free time, she enjoys hiking, thrifting, farmers markets and most of all, quality time with her family. ❤️
Clarissa is an absolutely amazing dog handler, she oozes patience, is trustworthy, reliable and is the first to jump in and handle anything that gets thrown her way! She is a rockstar and we are so excited for the rest of you to meet her!
