Hi! I'm Monica.
I am passionate about improving the welfare of dogs and the humans they share their lives with. Reducing behavior struggles with an eye to relationship first, is a top priority for the families and dogs that I work with.
Looking at the whole dog is key. Through the use of ethical learning methods, environmental adaptations,management, and meeting needs, I guide you toward improving life with your dog.
Following 25 years of fostering dogs and several years running a state licensed quarantine, I continued pursuing studies in ethology, body language,aggression, enrichment. separation anxiety, fear,affective neuroscience, pain and behavior. etc
My current studies have taken me across the pond and beyond to The Nordic Education Center For Dog Trainers and BHAR
