Pet Sitter / Behavioral Trainer
At the University of Kentucky I was apart of 4 Paws for Ability. I was a sitter for dogs that were getting trained & socialized for their next level of service dog training. I also have trained an ESA within my family specializing in PTSD & panic attacks. I am self taught in clicker training as well as using psychology based methods of classical / operant conditioning for animal behavior. I have previous lab experience with mice in behavioral training from college while I was getting my degree in neuroscience & psychology. While at UK, I worked as a lab assistant in the College of Medicine in the Neurobehavioral Sciences Lab Dept. I own my own dog, as well as care for 2 other dogs that belong to my house. My family has a total of 8 dogs, which I am capable of caring for all at the same time and for long periods of time / overnights upon request. Also have experience with other animals (see profile). All rates are negotiable based on # of animals, type of animal, length of time.. etc.
