Introduction: I have the necessary background, credentials, skills, knowledge, experience, ability, competence and exposure training and providing services for dogs and/or people. On this profile page there is proof showing that. Furthermore, I feel my Dog Training experience with dogs and people would be a huge asset to any household.
My involvement with dogs started in 1992 working at an Animal Hospital/Boarding facility for thirteen years as a Part-Time Veterinary Assistant. I learned to deal with dogs calmly and efficiently during exams, after treatment and in the cages. After my years at this Animal Hospital/Boarding Facility, I decided to put that experience to good use.
As a result, I went to the Academy of Canine Education and learned several diverse approaches to Dog Training. During this time I logged in more than 100 hours working as a Dog Trainer's assistant where I assisted in many different ways. From observing, learning and helping, to instructing clients relating to their dog's progress and their owners in group like settings. I have a signed letter showing this in full detail. As well as other credentials.
Similarly, I graduated this program in 2005 and to this day, I've been training dogs and their owners independently, thus instructing group training classes, conducting private training lessons consulting with clients and training hands-on with one or more dogs while having my own past Dog Day Care establishment.
Additionally, I've accumulated more than 75 hours of experience in volunteering at a local animal shelter, consulting with another trainer about current cases and designing training plans. Furthermore, I've developed techniques to strengthen the dog and owner bond. I also have demonstration videos showing this and at the same time I often take a video of a client with his/her dog doing a routine training exercise. If they're not doing it correctly, I would not say anything but capture it and play it back. Thus, they would see what they did wrong and learn from it. In addition, they would see what they did right and remember it. At the same time I feel that the owner is the best Dog Trainer for their dog and I make that possible. I have numerous references. My main reference is Dr. Arthur Kronfeld who is a distinguished retired Cornell veterinarian.
Lastly, I am fully vaccinated.
