Sonny Madsen: President and Founder
Master Certified Dog Trainer and Owner Operator of the Northern Virginia franchise, And Founder of K-9 Caring Angels Therapy and Service Dogs. An award winning manager and public speaker with an emphasis on sales, training and motivation, I have always felt an internal drive to help people improve their lives.
It is through K-9 Caring Angels that my dreams have started to become a realization. I have the honor of training and certifying our Caring Angles therapy teams which allows us to expand on giving back to the community by taking our pups into different organizations, and teaching dog safety programs. This has allowed us to assist local schools, underprivileged children, toys for tots, nursing homes, juvenile detention centers , local police, fire department, domestic violence programs, human trafficking prevention, counseling organizations, etc.
My 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 we 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. I know that we we make a difference, one dog at a time, I’ve seen that first hand. However the objective is that one day we will not be needed. 571-284-9554 or email@example.com
Theodore Madsen: Vice President
Ted Madsen is a professional dog trainer and business owner and the Vice President of K-9 Caring Angels. K-9 Caring Angels is a 501(c)(3) organization doing business as Caring Angels and Warrior’s Angels based in Northern Virginia. As a professional dog trainer and partner in Sit Means Sit Dog Training of Northern Virginia, Ted spends his days working on the business and with dogs and their humans to build stronger bonds and confident, obedient, and happy dogs (and owners). Ted joined his wife Sonny in starting Caring Angels Therapy dogs to give back to the community that has given so much to us and the Warrior’s Angels Service Dogs to help our soldiers and veterans by donating psychiatric service dogs to those with challenges like PTSD and doing our part for those that have given so much to us as Americans.
Before becoming a dog trainer, Ted worked in the corporate world as an executive in the travel and tourism industry with Hilton, Wyndham and Resort Condominiums International (RCI) into 2008 when the economy crashed and the travel and tourism industry faced unfamiliar challenges. Ted then founded Quintessential Consulting Group, a partnership designed to help businesses in the industry through the changing landscape. It was in 2010 that Sonny came to Ted with the idea of starting a dog training business after meeting with the founder of Sit Means Sit, Fred Hassen, in Las Vegas, NV. She thought he would think it was a crazy idea but his support and her drive made it happen and the same is true for K-9 Caring Angels. In 2012 Ted closed up his consulting business to train full time. 703-679-8556 firstname.lastname@example.org
