*I am “Certified” through my Creator, the U.S. Constitution and Natural Law.
I initiated my Dog Behavior journey while working at Angell Memorial Animal Hospital in Boston, MA and began “listening” to all of the sick dogs in an effort to ensure they remained as comfortable and calm as possible. This in turn sparked my passion and a life-long career working with dogs and their caretakers.
I started Grooming in 1980 and developed a deep understanding of how to communicate my process to clients and over time formalized a unique Behavioral Method that I use to instill a sense of trust between clients and their dogs.
