Carri Pedigo · Trainer
Carri has had a love for furry canines since she was a child. Whether it was exploring the 400 acres of her great aunt and uncles farm with their seven dogs in tow, or playing in her own backyard with one of her family dogs, she has always loved being surrounded by dogs.
Shes had her own dogs since the age of 16, and was able to train them simply using her own natural instincts. After starting a family and moving around the country with them, dogs were always a constant and important part of their lives.
In 2007 she became actively involved in volunteering and fostering for some local dog rescue groups and eventually started independent fostering of dogs she had rescued on her own. After gaining knowledge about the overcrowding in shelters and the growing number of homeless pets living in the Houston and surrounding areas, she felt like working with dogs was her true passion.
In January 2012, after many years of sitting behind a desk doing the 8-5 hustle and bustle, and with her children at an age that would allow her to begin a new endeavor in life, she set out for Hutto, Texas where she attended Starmark Academy for Professional Dog Trainers. She graduated as a Canine Training and Behavior Specialist from Starmark in April 2012.
Upon graduation from Starmark, Carri worked as a trainer in the Pasadena area. In April 2016, she joined the crew at Bayside Bed & Biscuit as the supervisor for the Group Play program. She absolutely loved being a part of the Group Play program and working with the great team of group counselors and amazing dogs who come to participate in Baysides group play.
Carri is excited to be joining Kayla and Chelse as the newest member of the training team at Bayside. She is looking forward to the new opportunity and challenges that being part of this great training team will bring her way.
