"Although I received my Certifications at the San Francisco SPCA, I met Cesar Millan the Dog Whisperer years ago before he was as famous as he is today. What I learned from his methods and experience about Pack Dynamics became the foundation of my method". Cesar is the true "Dog Whisperer" as he was the first to truly provide hope for dogs and dog owners who otherwise felt there was no hope!
I have also been strongly influenced by Professor Temple Grandin Phd. Ms. Grandins way of thinking in pictures as opposed to words helps her to see things the same way that animals do. Ms. Grandin is autistic and this is how people with autism see things, in pictures not words!
Ms. Grandin can see something in a cattle chute as insignificant to a human as a reflection of light off of a piece of stainless steel, and understand why the cattle are balking in that area of the chute or why a small puddle has been an ongoing issue with livestock movement in a certain area.
When you understand how animals see things, you can look past the obvious and clearly recognize how something that may be small and irrelevant to a human in a particular environment can be a big thing to an animal in the very same environment. Until you clearly recognize and pinpoint the exact motivation behind a particular behavior... you can't begin to rehabilitate, modify or change that behavior.
Owning a well balanced dog is one of lifes greatest pleasures! The bond that exists between man and dog is a special relationship that words cannot truly describe. Occassionally our four legged friends develop unwanted behaviors that can compromise our lifestyles, possibly cause harm to others or even force us to surrender them altogether. Working as an intern at the San Francisco SPCA, I have seen this sad situation occur far too often.
Whether you are experiencing training challenges, behavioral issues or just wish to take your dog to "The Next Level"... I can help... There is No Charge for the Consultation and we can talk for as long as you'd like.
I look forward to hearing from you.
