Doree has been training all kinds of animals for something like 196 dog years.

Luckily for me I was adopted into her home to join Griffin and his dad, the famous Barkley the Dog, a very well known and respected dog actor. Doree has worked with all kinds of animals. Small dogs, big dogs, house cats, BIG cats, rats, ferrets, birds, bugs, you name it. Doree worked in the business as an actress from infancy to twenty-five in human years.
