Ella Tucan

Ella Tucan is a graduate student at Wayne State University and currently enrolled in Dr. Ian Dunbar's Dog Trainer Academy. She teaches basic obedience group classes for both adult dogs and puppies at City Bark in downtown Detroit and looks forward to continuing her education on dog behavior and cognition.

Ella first became interested in training after fostering and volunteering for Detroit Animal Care and Control, Rebel Dogs Detroit, and Friends for Animals of Metro Detroit. Throughout her time at multiple shelters and rescue organizations, she has gained experience and confidence working with dogs of all shapes, sizes, and temperaments—although she’ll always have a soft spot for pitties. Her two dogs, KitKat and Sammy, are both foster “failures.”

Ella is currently teaching group classes downtown Detroit with our friends over at City Bark.
