Lynda Lobo, CPDT-KA has been working with animals for over ten years but her love for animals and commitment to their welfare has been life-long. Lynda’s family has always included a variety of animals, giving her a unique perspective on multi-species coexistence.
Lynda is Chicago native and graduate of The Evergreen State College and FetchFind Academy. After working in environmental education, she began dedicating her time to dogs and completed a volunteer internship at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.
Through her work with her own Best Friends dogs, Surf and Ryan, Lynda has learned firsthand the challenges and rewards of loving dogs that aren’t “perfect,” and brings that compassion to her training and education career. Her approach is based on sound science, humane methods, and strengthening relationships. Lynda has experience in animal rescue, shelter work, grooming, daycare, walking, and retail management. She is the Director of Education at FetchFind and the Program Coordinator for FetchFind Academy. She is trained in Pet First Aid and CPR and lives with her partner, Mary. She also loves cats and has her own rescue kitty, Rikku.
In her free time, Lynda enjoys making art, vegetarian cooking, reading, volunteering, gardening, photography, and microbrews.
