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

Relax. Play games. Be patient - with your animal and with yourself. Be kind. 'Bad' behavior doesn't mean an animal is 'bad'; often s/he just needs to learn that there's another way!

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

I love working with people who are committed to learning, and get as excited about behavior as I do!
