Bio from Trainer

I started my career in the pet industry over 4 decades ago.  I have been fortunate to experience just about every facet of all things animals.  From retail, pets and supplies, wholesale pet supplies and food, Veterinary Technician, and of course, pet training.  Other than a 10 year period training Parrots, dogs have always been my passion, mainly obedience and behavior modification.  For the last 8 or so years, in search of continuing education, I have been training my own dogs and competing in the most difficult of dog sports, IGP-Schutzhund.  In that time I been lucky enough to work with several world level trainers and competitors.  Luckily for me I have 2 outstanding dogs who have allowed me to achieve high in Trial Obedience and high in Trial Tracking titles, as well as the 2018 working dog Championship IPO 2 National Champion title.
I try to share as much knowlegde as I can to dog owners, so they can bring the clarity of learning to their dogs.  When I started out there was no such thing as on-line certifications, but I am now certified to do Canine Good Citizen evaluations, as well as K-9 Nutrition Specialist.
The training methods I use change from dog to dog, as each one is an individual in what motivates them to learn.  To keep it simple, I use classical conditioning, and operant conditioning, as studies have shown this decades old knowlege creates the easiest way for dogs to learn.
