Marker Line Curved Blue

Dr. Sponsler grew up in Lexington, KY and showed hunter jumper horses. She moved to Indiana in 1986 to attend Purdue University and graduated in 1990 with a Bachelor of Science degree in biology, achieving highest distinction honors. She earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Purdue University in 1994. She has been practicing as a small animal veterinarian at the Broad Ripple Animal Clinic since graduation.

Dog agility competition was a natural replacement for horse shows. Dr. Sponsler has trained and competed with many different breeds in agility, obedience, and conformation. As a veterinarian and pet lover, she appreciates the value of dog training as it relates to the human-animal bond, and an enriched lifestyle for dogs. She finds positive training, including clicker training, to be a great way to train all breeds.

Dr. Sponsler lives in Carmel with her son Benjamin and their four dogs Nippet (rescued Shih-tzu mix), Shady, Zing, and Bubbles (Schapendoes, aka Dutch Sheep Dogs) and Ginger, a rescue cat. Shady is a certified therapy dog. Dr. Sponsler volunteers for Paws on My Heart Cat rescue and Waldo’s Muttley Crew dog rescue. She has fostered many homeless dogs and cats over the years, and has even whelped and raised entire litters of puppies and kittens.
