As one that has struggled with severe lifelong debilitating depression and anxiety I understand the need for canine companionship. Ginger, my service dog and therapy dog, was why I went out everyday. Not only would I go out to cheer people up but she also got me out of the house. She would help me calm down from an anxiety attack, she would snap me out of displacement and so much more.
My struggles make me more aware and understanding of the challenges of this journey of life. Together, you and I can create a path for better living, easier daily tasks, stronger relationships, build that symbiotic relationship with your dog.
Dog training is an unregulated field and therefore there does not have professional standards which hold other professions accountable. I believe proper initial education and continuing education is vital to maintain the highest quality services.
Leading dog training professionals in this field are in zoos, and aquariums teaching wild animals how to work with ease with their handlers. All training is done using science-based, reward-based methods. This creates a thinking animal that acts with trust of their handler. Service dogs, ESA, and therapy dogs all need this vital skill.
I combined the veterinary technician degree with my dog training education in order to have a complete picture of how the medical aspect affects behavior.
This added another layer of expertise in my dog training and gives me an even stronger foundation to be Here to Help.
