I have been a dog lover all my life and am a firm believer that endless joy, personal growth, emotional growth, health benefits, and love can be found in the relationship between humans and dogs.
I have also conducted extensive research on the social benefits provided by having dogs in our lives. In my opinion, there is no greater social bridge than an adorable pup to bring people and communities together. (Community research studies that illustrate the power dogs have on social and community interactions provided upon request for any interested parties.)
My decision to become a service dog trainer was fueled by more than just my love of dogs. While studying Psychology at Smith College, I explored the use of psychiatric service dogs, a growing field at the moment, and found undeniable, remarkable, profound evidence of the efficacy of using dogs to change lives.
Obedience training is done using positive reinforcements methods only. Clicker and/or treat based training optional. Recommendation on most appropriate method suggested for your furry friend freely available.
For more information on my research, philosophies or any information as to how this might be applied to your life, please contact me anytime.
Thank you for your interest. I hope to hear from you.
