CHELSEA RIGGINS

Growing up the daughter of an animal trainer is a unique experience. Growing up with a superstar like Lassie is even more of a special experience and one that Chelsea shares with Lassie fans everywhere. Chelsea’s animal training experience comes from living and learning the history, the training and the nuance of Lassie. For 10 years Chelsea has been working and training animals for film and live appearances. As assistant trainer of Lassie, she has learned to raise and train a dog as a part of the family and bring out the best qualities in the bond between trainer and dog. Training isn’t about alpha and beta, it’s about creating a partnership that should last a lifetime.
