Scott Ski has lived his entire life in a Southern California beach community. As such, he whimsically refers to himself as “A Son of a Beach”. Dogs and cats have always been one of many passions. He and his longtime partner Robbi spent 20 years operating a rescue, focusing primarily on Siberian Huskies, but accepting all manner of dogs and cats. Together, they literally saved hundreds of dogs and cats from death, finding them good and loving homes. He is frequently consulted regarding his knowledge of dog and cat behavioral and training issues, selecting a new pet, and preparing yourself and your home for owning pets. “Dogged & Determined” grew out of six years writing a weekly series of stories for online groups.
