Why Keep Your Pet Started

I went to school for five years so you don't have to!  I graduated with the highest of honors, summa cum laude, with a master's degree in Companion Animal Behavior Analysis and Counseling.  This education and experience helps you understand enough about animal behavior, in easily digestible pieces as needed, to help your pet.  Recommendations are based on current, scientifically proven low stress, fear-free, and pain-free behavior modifications that have repeatedly worked.  

The field of animal behavior is evolving.  I keep up with current methodologies to make assisting you easier and easier.  To learn and keep up with current methods:
