My name is Auri, ever since I was a little girl I had a love for animals. I grew up with bunnies and cats. In my early adulthood I adopted my first dog ever. I named him Journey, little did I know he would be the best thing to happen to me. I have been working with animals for seven years, I have worked at four different daycares in two different states, there I would learn everything I know about dogs. I have worked in kennels, daycares, once was a bather and now the general manager and head dog trainer at Wagging Tails. I have received my dog training certificate, completed an internship at a training facility and done volunteer work in a shelter. I now own three dogs, three cats, and a bunny. My goal and dream was to help owners and their beloved pet be their best version of themselves, which is what led and guided me to become a dog trainer.
My name is Bella Vassallo, and I am from Western Massachusetts! Ever since I can remember, I have always wanted to work with animals. I grew up caring for dogs, cats, chickens, fish, and guinea pigs. I recently adopted my very first dog, a cattle dog mix. We named him Tatum after my favorite Celtics NBA player, we also have two cats, Cosmo and T-Rex.Tatum is a very energetic pup and loves coming to daycare to play with his friends! During my spare time, I enjoy taking Tatum on hikes, hanging out with friends, watching movies at home, and spending time with family. I started working at Wagging Tails in August 2022, and quickly transitioned to my current Assistant Manager position. My goal and dream is to learn everything about owning a business like Wagging Tails so that one day I can start my own.
