Daniel Ettinger


Daniel Ettinger got his start in animal welfare as a volunteer at a wolf sanctuary, though the call of the wild for him was to help protect people from animals, and animals from people. He is currently the animal control supervisor for Summit County, Colorado, Sheriff’s Office. Daniel has several years of experience investigating crimes against animals and maintaining a safe community and has worked countless bite investigations, cruelty/neglect cases and is an expert witness. Daniel is the host of the Animal Control Report, a podcast dedicated to animal control officers and other animal welfare professionals. He is an adjunct instructor for the University of Missouri, Law Enforcement Training Institute, where he has developed and presented several trainings, and is also an internationally recognized public speaker. Daniel has given lectures at several animal welfare and veterinary conferences throughout the United States. His innovative topics challenge the dog catcher and dog pound stereotypes to help provide alternative and proactive ways to operate.
