55. Dog trainer and author Victoria Schade and the through line of her life
Show Notes

Welcome to episode 55 of the Stories to Love podcast. My guest today is author Victoria Schade.

Victoria Schade has been a dog trainer and writer for over twenty years. During that time her dog duties have included working behind the scenes on Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl as the lead animal wrangler, appearing on two seasons of the Animal Planet show Faithful Friends, writing dog training content and appearing in educational videos for various pet-centric websites, and writing two dog training books in addition to her four novels. Her latest, DOG FRIENDLY, is a dog-centric beach read set on Nantucket.

In this episode we discussed her most recent release, DOG FRIENDLY, a realistic truth about veterinarians, a right time right place romance, and finally her life as a dog trainer and nonfiction author.

Victoria’s episode is the last in-conversation for 2022, and it is the perfect end to a fantastic year! Victoria is always just to fun to hang out with. There will be, however, a wrap up episode toward the end of December.
