Who is People & Pups?
I am Kim Jukes, owner and certified dog trainer at People & Pups, LLC. I live in Waco, Texas with my husband, Scott and our four dogs, Heather (Am. Staff, Great Dane mix), Joy (Boston Terrier, Chihuahua mix), Trinny (Lab, Great Pyrenees mix), and Loki (Boxer mix). Our sweet Emmy (Chihuahua mix) and Hayley (Jack Russell Terrier) crossed the rainbow bridge are some of the inspirations for my becoming a dog trainer.
My life revolves around dogs, mostly. I volunteer at Fuzzy Friends Rescue once a week and assist Akita Rescue of Northwestern PA when I can. I also head the Meals on Wheels for Pets project that gathers donated toys, treats and other items to make and give goodie bags to Meals on Wheels customers that have pets.
In addition to dog training, I have a day job where I am an Executive Assistant for Versalift. When I have time, I am involved in a local theater; the Brazos Theatre. I help there doing everything from concessions, to being stage manager to acting in murder mysteries and plays.
