Claire Giesige

Claire Giesige has been involved in guide dog training for over 20 years. As a volunteer she raised multiple puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind, and went on to become a licensed guide dog instructor after completing a degree in Psychology. She loves the purpose driven nature of service dog training and being able to teach clients how to work with a dog in a way that will enrich and expand their lives. After a brief motherhood break from the workforce, Claire is excited to be contributing and expanding her service dog training skills as a City Dog Country Dog trainer. She is also the Client Coordinator with City Dog Country Dog and is happy to be able to tell clients about our services and connect them with trainers who will be able to help them reach their training goals.
