Host Kelly Galea (mom to 1 canine & 2 feline coworkers) interviews Lorena Patti, MS, CPDT-KA, who will share some tips on "Working from Home with Your Dog."

A great advantage to having your own business from home is that if you have a dog, every day can be a "take your dog to work day"! Still, you need to make sure that you prepare your area, your dog, and yourself to make it work as best as possible. Hear about some of the steps you can proactively take to making your best buddy into the best work companion you could have.

She now owns Waggers Doggie Daycare & Training and has been a successful Canine Behavior Specialist in Orlando for over 7 years.
