Gina Brunick, Owner/ Head Trainer

I opened Falco Dog Training OC in July 2016, after working for Falco K9 Academy for several years. I am a certified Falco K9 Academy Trainer/Behaviorist, Evaluator for the Good Citizen Certification, Therapy Dog Evaluator with Therapy Pets Unlimited, and a member of IACP. I've also taken countless hours of CEU from Nationally known trainers. My studies with these trainers has changed the way I work with understanding dogs but most importantly understanding human psychology and its relation to our K9 companions.
