Amanda Hessel, V.P. of Marketing and Sales
In addition to her career in medical sales and the wholesale/retail business, animals have played an important role in Amanda's life. Her deep affection for dogs inspired her to volunteer for a non-profit service dog organization and poodle rescue. The training for her volunteer position convinced her that positive reinforcement training for animals is the best and most humane method. Her background combined with her deep belief in positive reinforcement training and love of meeting new people empowers her to help pet owners, trainers and retailers discover better tools for working with their pets. She has also been involved in the evaluation and testing of Pet Tutor and other smart products with her own dogs (two standard poodles and a great dane).
