What Clients Think
CREDENTIALS & APPROACH___________________
Certified Dog Behavior Consultant
I am one of less than 500 fully Certified Dog Behavior Consultants in the world through the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC). This certification is peer-reviewed and requires rigorous continuing education.
I work from a science-based approach. I am data-focused and have a strong understanding of learning theory and behavior sciences which inspires me to be innovative in my approach.
I believe that dogs and people should receive help free of assumptions, judgement, stress, and punishment.
I have been awarded 5 Maxwell Medallions and special awards through the Dog Writers Association of America for writing on dog behavior, training, and health.
Terrier Behavior Specialist
For over half a century we bred terriers for tough jobs that they had to bravely do on their own. When terriers don't adapt well to life as companion animals, they can be called "naughty" or "stubborn." These are signs something is amiss. My passion is to help people and terriers have wonderful lives together.
Together my teammate Miles and I have achieved over 70 performance titles. Miles is the most titled Welsh Terrier internationally of all time; all accomplished without ever sacrificing his terrier spirit.
