Healing Paws

Joe Macia

Katie Weibel has been training service dogs for more than 20 years, but her love for dogs goes back much further. Ever since going to her mother and grandmother’s work at a school where they taught handicapped children, Katie knew she wanted to support those with disabilities in any way that she could.

Katie says that training dogs is the way she can share her gift with the community. She has dedicated her life to training dogs that will provide incredible physical, mental, and emotional support for those who need it the most. From Naples, Italy to Fletcher, North Carolina, dog is Katie’s second language.

The service dogs are really more for me to give back to the community and share the special gifts that I have with others.
