DAWN SYLVIA-STASIEWICZ, Bo Obama, Trainer
It has been more than two weeks since Bo Obama's press-packed debut. A photographer managed to get some more photos of the newest member of the Obama family on Friday and Monday while taking a walk with what some people thought was his trainer. Bo was actually with White House Horticulturist Dale Haney. Bo's trainer is Dawn Sylvia-Stasiewicz, a woman described as "husky-voiced" by USA Today. Bo lived with Sylvia-Stasiewicz for weeks before his move to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Sylvia-Stasiewicz has trained some other high profile dogs. Her website has testimonials from Senator Ted Kennedy and Senator Chuck Hagel. Can't wait to see the Obamas' testimonial on there!
Many thanks for all your assistance in the training of Splash & Sunny. Your hard work and expertise is seen in their behavior and Vicki and I are very grateful for all that you have done.
Senator Edward M. Kennedy
Lilibet and I appreciate all the good work that you have done with Figgie. Your training has helped discipline him and make his presence in the house much more enjoyable! Figgie thanks you. We all thank you.
Senator Chuck Hagel
