Jason and Corinne D'Ambrosio


Jason and Corinne D'Ambrosio live in Huntington Beach, CA with their son, Rome, and his two best pibble friends, Baloo and Luna.  Baloo was pulled from the euthanasia list of a Ventura area high-kill shelter by San Diego based rescue, It's The Pits, and joined the family in 2012. Baloo loves positive reinforcement training, which helps him to focus and burn off that youthful energy! He earned his AKC Canine Good Citizenship certification in 2015. Luna is a shy little petite pittie pulled from the Carson shelter by a local rescue. Jason has his first level ciccerone and works for Firestone Walker Brewing Company out of Paso Robles. Corinne has a business background and brings that to SoCal Pitbull TEAM, as well as her technical sales company, Mbar Technology. She is also a Yoga Teacher (her favorite pose is Upward Facing Dog of course!) Jason and Corinne met in 2005 and married in 2010, and love having puppy play dates with the Telesmanic Trio!
