Lani attended the Canine Behavior Academy and received her certificate of accomplishment in 2008. She also attended the Canine Behavior Academy II, Body Language/Evaluations and Behavior Modification/Training Exercises and received her certificate of completion in 2009, both conducted by Trish King, the former Director of Behavior and Training, at the Marin Humane Society. Lani also received her CPPS ( Certified Professional Pet Sitter, 2010-2013) issued by Pet Sitters International. Lani attends a variety of workshops in animal health and policies and she is currently studying to receive her certification in Veterinary Assisting through U.S. Career Institute.
