Pet Handling with Deb
About this pro
I feel that my skills are more about understanding the dog and how he/she learns. When people understand that human language is not the one that works when you have a dog that has a issue that doesn't seem to get better but just keeps getting worse when you can learn to speak dog an know why it works you will see happy owners along with a very happy and healthy relationship with the dog I love helping people solving problems or what they perceive as a problem with their dog. I have worked in rescue of many years and see dogs end up being put into rescue for issues that could be worked out very simply with some understanding and time.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am always going to weekend seminars and symposiums. I read books and I belong to an organization that I go to a Canine college once a month. I don't want to ever stop learning about animals they are so fascinating they are more like you and me then we know.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Actually, I got an invite and decided to try it. I wasn't sure it would be worth while but I figured I give it a shot and see how it goes.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I mostly do in home training and behavior modification so I'm contacted to deal with Jumping, barking, or food issues. I work with all dogs and I love them all but I specialize in small dogs because they have a few special things for people to understand.
