Meet the TEAM

Barbara and Chris Telesmanic live in San Diego California with their two rescues pit bulls Buddy and Vinny. Both Originally from New Jersey Barb and Chris reconnected on the West Coast and were married in 2007. Barbara is a registered nurse at Rady Children's Hospital, San Diego. Chris is a foreman for the San Diego electrical union.  Buddy is a complex rated certified therapy dog through pet partners, and has his canine good citizen certification through the AKC.  Buddy has twice received the highest ranking a therapy dog can achieve and loves working in the community.   As SoCal pitbull team co members Buddy and Barb provide out reach programs and dog safety demonstrations (along with Jason and Corinne's dog Kunta).  Vinny is in training for his canine good citizen ship certification. Barb and Chris became fast friends and kindred spirits with cofounders Jason and Corinne while the two gals met as volunteers for pinups for Pitbulls in 2009. 

Jason and Corinne D'Ambrosio live in Huntington Beach, CA with their elder-bull Kunta and his younger "brother" Baloo.  Kunta was adopted from SPCALA on Spring Street in Long Beach almost 10 years ago and has battled canine cancer twice in his lifetime.  He is now an AKC Canine Good Citizen and Breed Ambassador with SCPBT.  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.  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 Registered 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!
