Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
After a successful career in corporate America, Ms. Musko chose to pivot and follow her passion. As the owner of both The Collar Club and The Collar Club Academy, Ms. Musko has strategically built a strong presence in the canine industry. Over a decade ago, she founded The Collar Club in Cleveland, Ohio, and over three years ago, she expanded her vision with the introduction of The Collar Club Academy in Denton, Texas. This dual ownership reflects her commitment to providing exceptional dog training services, and through these endeavors, Ms. Musko's brand has flourished, marking a significant footprint across multiple locations.
Managing a team of experienced dog trainers, Ms. Musko focuses on providing guidance, training, and support to ensure quality results. Among various specialties, she and her employees offer multiple levels of dog training, from foundational obedience to advanced off-leash training and personal protection. They also address and help resolve behavioral issues, such as aggression, separation anxiety, and more.
As a prominent figure in the dog training industry, Ms. Musko has gained recognition for pioneering a distinctive approach that harmonizes instinct, technique, and various styles of dog training, setting her apart as a leader in the field.

Ultimately, Ms. Musko's goal is to ensure that more and more dog owners are equipped with the knowledge and tools necessary to strengthen the bond between humans and their canine companions.
