It takes a special team to ensure that your dogs have the best care when they are here with us at U.S. Canine. Whether you need training, overnight boarding, or daycare, these are the staff members that make it happen.

Angie Woods – Owner/Founder

As a seasoned canine behavior expert, Angie earned her reputation as a “dog relationship coach” by helping thousands of dogs overcome bad manners, phobias, aggression, and other severe behavioral issues through first balancing their human leaders. Her ability to build confidence and emotional balance in people is key to empowering them to nurture healthy relationships with their dogs. By teaching families as well as animal professionals to understand Natural Dog Behavior, her aim is to enhance and enrich both human and canine lives. Prior to founding Dog Psychology 101, Angie owned and operated a grooming business, and practiced as a veterinary technician for 17 years. She has been featured a variety of regional, national, and international media and engages in frequent workshops and speaking engagements. As a lover and supporter of all animals of all sizes, Angie enjoys spending time with her menagerie (which currently includes dogs, horses, a snake, a donkey, a pig, rabbits, rats, and chickens) and supports spay/neuter initiatives through her non-profit organization, Dog Corps.

Behavior Specialists

Josh Woods – Lead Behavior Specialist 

Growing up with Angie as his mother, it would have been surprising if Josh had not absorbed her expertise with animals, in addition to inheriting her natural instinctiveness. He began working with animals in professional capacity when he was 15 years old, as a kennel assistant at the veterinary clinic where Angie worked. Over the next two decades, Josh honed his technical acumen to complement this innate abilities to connect with dogs. Today, Josh leads the behavioral team and enjoys educating people about the dogenalities motivations, and inner workings of their canine companions to not only enhance their behaviors but their bonds.

Joey Conlow – Behavior Specialist 

Georgia native Joey grew up watching Cesar Millan’s “Dog Whisperer” and was intrigued by the field of dog behavior, spurring an interest in becoming a trainer. He began his career with the organization in the kennel, and learning through numerous successes and failures, earned roles of increasing responsibility and is now a senior behavioral trainer. He loves helping people understand the dynamics of canine mentality and how they operate, and says seeing the positive change in families as they improve their relationships with their dogs is the most rewarding aspect of his work.

Kennel Assistants

Baylee Laurich, Kennel Team Leader 

Baylee has spent the entirety of her young career working with animals, stemming from an interest that started in her agriculture classes in middle school and high school. At 16, she began working at vet hospitals to apply her learnings to the dog world, and she has also rescued and cared for eight dogs in her lifetime. Baylee hails from the Athens, GA area and is one of seven children with 60+ cousins – she attributes her patience, persistence, and leadership to coming from a large family. She gravitated to working with the organization because of her passion for animal advocacy(especially ending the abuse or abandonment of dogs due to addressable medical or behavioral issues), and enjoys the hands-on nature of the job and learning about different dog breeds.
