Madison grew up in Miami, Arizona, where her father worked as an American Kennel Club breeder, training Labrador Retrievers for fire, police, and narcotics agencies throughout the Southwest. She assisted her father in training the dogs in Eastern Arizona, and she loved every minute of it, whether it was teaching them simple commands, retrieving objects, or training them for disabled owners. Madison's upbringing was unique. Instead of being woken up by an alarm clock, her dad would bring in a puppy every morning to lick her awake.
While in college, Clark worked for three years at a Wall Street dog daycare, managing the company’s finances, scheduling clients, and handling various other responsibilities. Madison Clark took her trainer and dog daycare skills from Wall Street to Main Street – or more specifically, South Stapley Drive. Last November, Clark opened Desert Pups Dog Daycare and Boarding at 1455 S. Stapley Drive, Mesa, where the 2,800-square-foot facility is built to offer the best features from her past dog daycare jobs in New York City, North Carolina, and Las Vegas. All this from someone who grew up around dogs but never considered this kind of business. Madison is also an avid dog blogger and uses her professional experience to provide useful content for dog parents like you.
Madison Tanner Clark is a proud alumnus of The King’s College in New York City, where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Media, Culture, and the Arts, complemented by a concentration and minor in Business Economics. Her extensive educational background is further enriched by her board certification as an American Kennel Club Certified Trainer, a testament to her comprehensive understanding and expertise in dog training and behavior management.
