Gale Haugh has spent 30 years as an educator working with special needs children in both public and private programs as a classroom teacher, behavior intervention specialist, and currently as an administrator for the school at a youth mental illness day treatment program. She founded Kids ‘n’ Canines, a program pairing children with behavioral/educational disabilities with dogs to train for adoption. Gail's background in behavioral science and education makes it a natural progression to her training dogs for the many companion sports. The dog pack in Gale’s home includes 2 rescued American Eskimo Dogs Tibs and Jazz, 1 non-rescue “Eskie,” UKC/AKC Ch Storytime’s Once In A Blue Moon (Miakoda) and a rescue Sheltie/Corgi mix Maya. The three Eskies all participate in competitions. Gale volunteers for Eskie Rescuers United with intervention training prior to adoption. Gale is also the national Rescue Coordinator for The American Eskimo Dog Club of America. Children and dogs in need of support to reach their full potential play a very important role in Gale’s life.
