Joe Bodick


As a professional dog trainer (R+) & kennel manager for over 10 years, Joe knows and loves dogs!

Originally from Albuquerque, NM, Joe spent his childhood and much of his adult life caring for and training animals.

A 9/11-era US Navy veteran, he began professionally training dogs ten years ago after completing the PetSmart Accredited Pet Training Instructor program, where he remained until 2013, when he was offered the position of General Manager of Camp Bow Wow Albuquerque.

Overseeing a team of 40 kennel workers and up to 125 dogs a day in daycare and boarding, He learned a lot about dogs (and their humans!) while helping to grow and maintain the business during those 4 fun years!

He stayed with CBW until the summer of 2017, when he moved to Denver, Colorado and immediately set out on his personal mission to help make dog-owning homes happier.

By utilizing his extensive background in dog behavior, his love for walking and his desire to leave the world a cleaner, better place then he found it, Joe founded A Happier Home Dog Care in August of 2017 with the idea that he can help make every dog-owning home a little happier.
