I am a Proud Member of Truly Dog Friendly and the No Shock Coalition

TrulyDogFriendly.com was launched in May 2006 by a coalition of dog trainers and behavior consultants concerned with the proliferation of the use of shock collars and other harmful tools and methods within their profession.

How do we define dog-friendly? Simple: pain-free.

In order to be an effective canine behavior consultant it is essential to have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of humane science based training. I have attended countless seminars, webinars and studied the books, videos and papers of Dr Karen Overall, DACVB, CAAB, Dr Michelle Duda, PhD, BCBA-D, Dr Juarbe-Diaz, Chirag Patel, BSc (Hons), Patricia McConnell, Ph.D, Dr. Ian Dunbar, Dr Adam Miklosi, Victoria Stilwell, Turid Rugaas, Deborah A. Jones Ph.D., Sue Sternberg, Jean Donaldson, Pat Miller, Emma Parsons, Trish King, Terry Ryan, Susan Garrett, Suzanne Clothier, Alexandra Kurland and Dr Jesus Rosales Ruiz to name but a few.
