Sue Marlais

Dog Training Team Member


When Sue Marlais isn’t working her day job as the deputy Chief Information Officer for Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, she is a trainer for Dog Dynamics, Inc. Sue’s heart is committed to rescue dogs and to people in need, and her credentials speak for themselves. She works closely with the East County Animal Shelter in training volunteers to help rescued dogs be more adoptable, and she opens up her home to foster puppies in need. She has two rescued Chihuahuas, that were “foster failures” Jack and Bella, that are now trained for agility. The rascally pair are also therapy dogs through Tri-Valley Humane Canine Comfort and they regularly visit senior living facilities bringing joy with a happy tail. Sue’s little Bella also visits Hospice organizations where Bella brings comfort to last stage patients.
