Zakk Wrabiutza: Chillin Canine Consultant, Obedience Trainer and Caregiver
Zakk was diagnosed with type one diabetes at the young age of 13, and life forever changed. Soon after, Zakk begun training his own puppy Annie to detect and alert to his fluctuating blood sugar. Zakk also trained Annie for public access. And again, life forever changed because of Annie’s amazing alerting abilities.
Even as a young teenager, Zakk’s calm and humorous, but serious demeanor has made him a natural with dogs. And over the years, Zakk has perfected his communication skills with people that love their dogs and teaches them his own personal blend of behavioral modification, social etiquette and obedience training methods.
Zakk has provided CE credits to hundreds of nurses, physicians and specialists with his diabetic alert dog presentations, and has mentored Clemson University’s uprising Veterinary students by providing accredited programs were students got hands on learning experience with rescue dogs that they fostered and trained under Zakk’s tutelage in hopes that these rescue hopefuls would turn in assistance dogs that would help families better navigate in the local community.
Due to Zakk’s participation in Clemson University’s rescue to hero curriculum, the sad realization of how overcrowded Anderson’s local shelters were. And, many rescues just need a little helping hand with some simple social etiquette training to become valued pets for many families in the upstate,
Zakk began offering training with pets of all ages, and their foster parents and or adoptive caregivers back in 2015. And our community has been steadily growing with chillin canine’s ever since!
