Who Is Training Your Family member?
My interest in behavior started too many decades ago for me to be willing to count them. I have since spent my life learning, researching and applying what the latest research could give us, first as a Cognitive Neuroscientist, then with an internship as a Neuropsychologist, and finally as a Licensed Psychologist, specialized in behavioral patterns.
My career has seen me in different European countries, such as Switzerland (my birth country), Italy (my studying and specialization country), as well as the UK, Germany and now the US (when I live happily married since 2014).
My travels have given me the unique gift of seeing the world through many eyes and cultures, and the possibility to deepen and evolve my career as my life expanded.
One of these expansions gave me the gift of the company of my dogs, currently a Griffon WP and a Border Collie. They are the reason for my change in career. I discovered that dog training is a non regulated industry and that there was a need for trainers that would use animal learning theory to actually train dogs. So I did what I do best. Put my researcher hat on and enrolled in what is considered, among pet dog trainers, the Harvard of dog training: Jean Donaldson's "Academy for Dog Trainers", along with participating in seminars and other additional courses that would tailor my knowledge specifically into dog behavior.
I am currently part of the Pet Professional Guild (PPG), the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, and a supporter of the IAABC. I possess a Certificate in Pet First Aid, I am certified as a Fear Free Shelter Specialist by the Fear Free Coalition, and as a Bite Prevention Educator by the Doggone Safe Coalition.
I opened my private dog training in 2019, to serve the greater Gresham area, and teach dog training classes, in Gresham, at Countryside Pet Spa.
When I not with a client dog, or my own dogs, I volunteer at the Oregon Humane Society of for other shelters, to help dogs find a safe forever home.
