DWAA honored Steve Dale at their annual awards banquet held February 12, 2012.
The youngest person to be inducted into the DWAA Hall of Fame, Dale is not short of accomplishments. A certified behavior consultant, he is a popular guest speaker for events and has presented at many major veterinary and humane conferences around the world. He has appeared on national television and hosted the award winning Pet Central on WGN Radio for 12 years.
Dale serves on several Boards of Directors including the American Humane Association, Winn Feline Foundation, CATalyst Council, Tree House Humane Society, and on the advisory board of Angel on a Leash.
The DWAA Hall of Fame recognizes individuals who exemplify lifetime achievement and distinguished contributions to the benefit of all dogs, the dog sports, and those who care for them.
To be considered for a Hall of Fame nomination, a candidate must make significant contributions to the field of dog journalism and be respected as an expert in canine writing by the community and their peers.
