For 28 years, I have been helping owners understand their canine companions by teaching them how to communicate through body language and pack behaviors. I teach owners to protect more than they correct, as a dog would do. I specialize in canine aggression. Through my research and rehabilitation programs, many dogs deemed dangerously aggressive and unadoptable have been able to live calm, happy lives with their owners.
I started my career as a veterinary technician, where I quickly observed the lack of communication between human and dog. This is when I decided to dedicate my life to helping humans understand their dogs. I have never turned a dog away because I believe, unless there is a medical reason, any dog can be rehabilitated with the right program. My methods are based on how dogs communicate with each other by following their natural instincts, and, most importantly, keeping them in a "working-mind." My own pack includes 12 wonderful rescue dogs, all of which had serious aggression issues, and now are all "good citizens" that help us help other dogs resolve their issues.
I fight everyday for all dogs and try to educate as many people as possible through our community programs, work with area shelters, and seminars; in hopes that our research and experience may someday help the public understand our "misunderstood" dogs.
