Meet Laura Schorrak, CPACM
We wrapped up our Part of the PACCC series for 2017 with the furbulous Laura Schorrak, CPACM (and CPACP, for that matter). Laura owns The Dog Den and The Puppy Den in Madison, Wisconsin, and, to date, her two facilities collectively boast an extraordinary 10 PACCC certified pet care professionals! But, as Laura says, there are more to come…now on the blog!
