Dee Hoult, MBA, CPDT, CTDI won her first pet tricks contest is 1987 with Babe, a border collie mix. She can still vividly remember her father picking out Babe from a litter of pups on a relative’s farm and putting the small black puppy into a cardboard box. That car ride home with Babe would be the beginning of a lifelong passion for animals. It wasn’t until completing her undergraduate degree in Marine Biology and a Masters in International Business from the University of Miami that she turned her hobby of training dogs into business and career.
Dee currently serves as head trainer and CEO of Applause Your Paws, Inc., Miami’s largest privately owned positive dog training company. Her company’s mission is to help dog owners improve their quality of life through enjoyable, connected relationships with their canine companions by providing engaging, positive education and non-intimidating training so that in any environment they can have the well-behaved dog they always wanted. Although Dee dedicates her training time to helping clients with their canine behavior concerns, the thing she is most passionate about is developing her business. A large part of business development includes all of the networks that Dee is part of. In addition to managing her staff and assisting her own clients Dee is the “go to” professional for Miami-Dade’s animal rescue community for canine evaluations and behavior training, an Animal Behavior College and CATCH Academy Mentor, head trainer of Miami-Dade Correction’s Second Chance Dog Training program, currently serves on the Board of Trustees for the Association of Professional Dog Trainers. Dee is what you could call a “serial networker.” If there is an opportunity to meet people and connect, you can be sure to find her there!
Dee shares her home with two cats (Sushi and Cheddar), three dogs (Zoe a Border Collie mix, Oxford a Yellow Labrador and Marty McFly a Border Collie) and her English husband Sam. With her dogs she enjoys competitive canine sports including agility, frisbee, rally obedience, competition obedience, tricks, as well as week-long hiking, biking, camping and kayaking trips.
