About the author

Alison Young

Alison Young is a highly skilled veterinarian who has spent the large part of her life professionally caring for, and training, dogs.  She started as a child on the icy coasts of Maine, helping locally with what dogs her neighbors and family couldn't handle, until she was old enough to be properly registered.  Because of her dedication to her work and animals, Alison graduated at the top 5% of her class with honors.
She now lives in bright and sunny California with her busy family of 3 daughters (ages from 6 to 13, a couple of which are looking to follow their mother’s footsteps), two adopted dogs (rescues) and her lone cat who to this day also seems to think it’s a dog.  When she's not working full-time as a veterinarian, or bustling around with her busy household, she works hard to ensure everyone who has a dog can care for it and ensure that it and the owner are happy.  
She has written several professional papers on this topic and is always eager to expand to people who are outside of the field as well. Alison is a strong believer that pets are part of the family and that there’s no such thing as an animal that’s a lost cause.
