President and Founder of K-9 Caring Angels
Sonny Madsen President & Founder
Mrs. Madsen is a master certified dog trainer and owner/operator of multiple Northern Virginia Sit Means Sit Dog Training franchises which led to the founding of K-9 Caring Angels Therapy and Service Dogs. Mrs. Madsen comes from a career as an award winning manager and public speaker with an emphasis on sales, training and motivation.
It is through K-9 Caring Angels that Mrs. Madsen's dreams are being realized. She enjoys what she considers "the honor of training and certifying our Caring Angles therapy teams" which allows her to expand on giving back to the community by offering K-9 Caring Angels where there is a demand and a need. This has allowed her to assist veterans, local schools, underprivileged children, toys for tots, nursing homes, juvenile detention centers, first responders, domestic violence programs, human tracking prevention, counseling organizations, etc.
Her ultimate goal is to build the “Warrior Angels project” where families can come to a private facility and stay on location as they learn the proper way to integrate a Service dog into their lives. By offering this option she feels it will better set the family and the dogs up for optimum success. Statistic show that at least 22 soldiers a day commit suicide and over 40% of those are due to PTSD. Mrs. Madsen feels strongly that Warrior's Angels can make a difference, she has seen if first hand.
Mrs. Madsen continues to explore ways in which Caring Angels can work to better peoples lives and the community while expanding her own knowledge base and community understanding of the benefits of Therapy and Service Dogs.
