All Dogs Are Good Dogs

Amanda Ferris, ISCP. Dip. Canine. Prac.
I have loved dogs ever since I was a little girl. My first pet was my beloved Bichon Frise Esme, who lived to be 16 and taught me so much about dogs.
I previously volunteered with local pet adoption event Love Wanted Pet Adoptions back in 2009, where it was my job to handle dogs of all different ages and sizes. I would work side-by-side with the other volunteers in order to help the dogs find good homes during the event.
In 2013, I adopted my second dog Zoe, who is a rescue mutt from the Bahamas. She is quite fearful and noise phobic; her fear issues were the inspiration for me to go back to school to become a dog trainer.
I helped my fearful dog Zoe become more confident through the use of force-free dog training.
I wanted to help other dogs like Zoe and reassure the owners that they are not alone.
I excel at bonding with fearful dogs, and I have the utmost patience with them.
I am a certified dog trainer and graduated December 2020 from the International School of Canine Psychology.
I will never raise a voice to your dogs or force them to face their fears. I use only force-free and science-based training methods on my canine clients.

“To use shock as an effective dog training method you will need:a thorough understanding of canine behavior, a thorough understanding of learning theory, and impeccable timing.
If you have those three things, you don't need a shock collar.”
