Gone to the Dogs
6 Bourbon Street,
Hi, I'm Theresa A. Giannino, a graduate of the Karen Pryor Academy (KPA) . Through clicker training we train our dogs in strategic layers to build a strong foundation and create an abundant reinforcement history to shape the behaviors that you want.
As a Trainer, I work directly with my clients and their dogs to develop skills on both ends of the leash, foster a good healthy relationship, build understanding and observational skills, and educate them with regard to have balance when it comes to the social, emotional, physical, and nutritional well-being of their dogs.
I became a dog trainer because of my wonderful high energy yellow Lab, Milo. When Milo came in to my life I realized that, even though I had dogs all my life, I never trained one. I enrolled us in six weeks of basic training, but I soon realized that this training just scratched the surface. The training center was looking for interns, so I interviewed. I was blessed to be accepted. After interning for a few years, I knew I loved dog-training and that I wanted to become a certified professional trainer through Karen Pryor Academy. In 2007 I took in a stray dog. I wanted to give her the best life that I possibly could, however it was Milo that completely changed my life and all for the better.
