FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

I interview the client to gather information about the dog and the issue, and then formulate a plan to help the client and their dog meet theior goals. I teach the dog and the client the skills needed to address the issue, and then assess progress, adjusting the plan as needed. 


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

I have a degree in teaching from the University of Miami. I passed and continue to maintain the Certified Professional Dog Training title with continuing education by attending seminars, webinars, reading the latest in research, and consulting with colleagues. I am a life-long learner!


How did you get started in this business?

Teaching is not only what I do, it is who I am. After teaching humans :-) for many years, I decided to combine my love of teaching and my love of dogs, and became a dog trainer. I became fascinated with how they learn and sought to gain more education about that, the different breeds and learning styles.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We recently held a Performance Scent Dogs trial. It's an  amateur version of the professional scent detection that is used in many applications. For more info on that, see https://www.paws4fun.training/scent-detection.html 

Trials are great fun! The dogs love it and the handlers love it; it is a great outlet for a dog's energy, and meets their natural desire to sniff!
