Sarah Ross- General Manager

Sarah has always been a natural with dogs and grew up with Basset and Blood Hounds. As a child, Sarah and her family trained her Bassets in basic obedience and scent tracking. When Sarah came to Perfect Pooch, we immediately noticed her strong work ethic and natural ability controlling a pack of dogs. She has been instrumental in the company’s progress since 2008, while also coordinating our foster program that has assisted in placing hundreds of  dogs in forever homes. She currently lives with her wife Lisa, their five dogs, and three cats- you will often see some their dogs around the building.

Bonnie Korytowski- Manager

Bonnie first came to Perfect Pooch as a client with her dog, Charlie. Her love for animals eventually led her to apply for a position at Perfect Pooch as a yard assistant. Proving herself to be a useful asset in the dog yards, Bonnie quickly rose to the task of helping with our administrative duties. She has continued to add to her area of responsibilities and is now a manager and handles all of our HR needs.  Bonnie has a degree from Temple University in Sociology and has become a valuable asset to our operations here at Perfect Pooch.

Chris Asher – Head Trainer

Chris fell in love when he first started working with dogs in the Army. During that time Chris learned to understand canine body language and behavior, and handling skills alongside his explosives detection dog, Marshall. Following his position as an explosives detection dog handler, Chris went on to lead the training program of a local kennel. After three years as the trainer in that facility, Chris decided it was time to move into a more challenging position. Chris now manages the training program at Perfect Pooch, and oversees the education of each dog. Chris really enjoys educating clients in training techniques and helping each owner understand their dog’s behavior(s). You can commonly find Chris working a dog around the facility grounds..
