1997: Tawzer Dog Videos was founded by George and Alta Tawzer after being introduced to ‘Positive Approach’ training principles while attending an ADPT Conference in Memphis, Tennessee. Recognizing the void in ‘positive approach’ training material, the couple started building a video library on this subject for distribution to trainers and laymen interested in furthering their knowledge and enhancing their training techniques.
2011: George and Alta passed the management ‘torch’ to their children (Debbie and Scott Pruett). New service offerings were introduced and the company was restructured to become what is now known as Tawzer Dog LLC.
Debbie Pruett: Partner/Chief Brand Officer
As the daughter of the founders of Tawzer Dog Videos (George and Alta Tawzer) Debbie has been an ad hoc member of the Tawzer Dog team since the company was started in (1997).
Outside of Tawzer Dog Videos, Debbie capitalized on her entrepreneur spirit, building a successful career in sales and marketing. Debbie has held senior management positions within telecommunications and contract manufacturing companies.
Debbie transitioned into her current Partner/CBO role within Tawzer Dog LLC in 2011, when her parents elected to retire and start enjoying the fruits of their labor. Since assuming her new position within the company, Debbie has instigated substantial growth within the company as measured by augmented product offerings and an expanded customer base.
Debra Staten: Partner/Chief Operations Officer
Debra is the newest member of the Tawzer Dog team, having joined the company in January of 2013. Debra brings with her a solid and diversified background in operations management, having held and prospered in similar positions over the course of her career.

Kody shares his home with Ellie, his miniature Australia Shepherd.
