How did you hone your craft?

When I got my first dog I was fortunate to meet a trainer who introduced me to opoperant conditioning principles of animal training, using positive reinforcement, reward based techniques for training animals rather than punishment based behavior that was all too common at the time. I still use the principles she taught me 40 years later, after having every professional animal behavior organization echo her approach over the years. After beterinary school, I began working with client animals that needed training or behavior modification therapy and things just took off from there.

What tip would you give pet parents for working with animals that you've learned as a pro?

If you have problems with training your dog or cat or your pet has behavior problems, don't wait too long to get help! For training, look for traienrs wh practice the principles of positive reinforcement, reward based training, not punishment based training. Watch a few classes before you choose one. Never turn your dog over to a trainer to be trained, the trainer should train you to train your dog, and your dog should never be out of your sight with a trainer. For behavior disorders, look for a veterinary behaviorist or veterinary behavior consultant.

What is one thing you want pet parents to know about you? It can be whatev-fur you'd like!

Pet training is FUN and enhances your relationship with your pet, and this is what I will teach you!
