As a volunteer at Homeward Bound, Addison County's Humane Society, I constantly see the harsh reality of the poor socialization, care, and training many dogs get previous to the arrival at the shelter. I see a clear need in the community for dog training and education. I will help you, and your family, build the relationship with your dog you both deserve so that you both get the most out of life. You and your dog should be a great companions and best friends. Best friends are not rude; they listen to you when you ask, and respond when you need them. We will show you how to create this dynamic with your dog in a way that is non-threatening and respectful. Dogs need lifelong training, exercise, and mental stimulation and it turns out- so do we! We can help you and your dog get all three. I work full time as a high school teacher and do dog training in my spare time because I love it. I am currently working on my CPDT-KA certification.
As dog lovers I also feel we should all take responsibility in helping homeless dogs in our community. I encourage you to donate to and volunteer at your local animal shelter if you can. When you decide to get another dog please adopt from a local shelter or rescue and give a dog who needs it, a forever home. If you are local please visit Homeward Bound's webpage for more information at homewardboundanimals.org or visit the shelter nearest you!
