All of my services are provided in a strictly ethical and professional manner. The recommendations I make to help modify or control the training or behavior issue will be in line with Positive Training principles and methodology. This means I follow the LIEBI model for levels of intrusiveness. I also follow a "humane hierarchy" for solving issues. This "humane hierarchy does not start with punishment, but utilizes all the information and science we now know about how animals learn to change behavior without force or coercion. I freely adopt a “do no harm” mentality and promise to stay updated in my continuing education so my clients have access to the best resources presently available in this field.
I have achieved numerous Professional Certifications and have a background spanning over 35 years in the field including Animal Health Technology. References are available upon request.
