Desert Harbor Doberman Rescue of AZ is fortunate to be able to call on Cat to help a new rescue with a behavior issue. Currently, Cat is supervising a small team of volunteers in a program she designed to help one of our big males overcome fear-based defensive aggression directed at other large dogs. He is making noticeable progress every week. Cat has more than the knowledge, skill, and sensitivity to work with any canine. She has "the touch." Watching her transform eight raucous, jumping dogs into calm, attentive students within a few minutes is a lesson in the magic that happens when a dog senses real compassion, deep understanding, genuine affection, and inner confidence coming its way. All this and a sense of fun and play, too! Don't hesitate: Call Cat for your dogs.

I met Cat as a volunteer with a dog rescue organization and quickly learned to respect and value her evaluative and training expertise. She has a calm, confident, and loving demeanor that dogs respond to immediately. We adopted an adult, rescued Doberman that Cat had been instrumental in getting out of a shelter. She believed that he had great potential and was really a very sweet guy that just needed love, attention, and some training. Being a rescue dog we didn’t know his history or the root of socialization problems he had. Cat’s behavioral training helped us to understand the possible causes and she taught us techniques to help him relax and interact with other dogs more calmly. We’ve seen a marked improvement and as we continue working with her, I believe we’ll see more success with his issues. Cat is much more than a trainer; she puts you at ease and gives you confidence that you can succeed in working effectively to train and understand your dog.

FAQs

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Yes. I am doing some continuing education in cat behavior, and with dogs, clicker training is one of the newest techniques I'm learning. Experts have actually trained Hyenas with clickers to press their necks against a fence for blood to be drawn without the use of any tranquilizers. It is a simple tool which used correctly can quickly teach a dog almost anything.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    My whole life I've had dogs and other pets and always could find ways to teach them and bring them together peacefully and then I found an extremely frightened dog in the street who had no skills and thought every thing every other animal, person or movement was a threat. I was not going to give up on her but realized that I didn't know enough to help her so I went back to school and not only changed her life for the better but mine as well and decided that it was so rewarding that I wanted to spend the rest of my life helping others and their pets find the peace and joy of a calm and balanced pack.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    Dogs or cats who will be sent to the pound without immediate behavior modification. People who want to learn to communicate better with their pets.
