Canine Behavior Specialist for Salon, Day Care & Boarding Services 

About Certification

When you are a pet care professional, a profound understanding of the dog’s psychology and behavior is absolutely necessary to provide safe, kind, gentle and compassionate handling of all dogs in your care in the salon, daycare and boarding facility.

 

Dogs are complicated and sensitive creatures. Often we humans take for granted their good qualities and make no attempt to understand what, through behavior, dogs are trying to communicate to us especially when they are away from home and in your care.

 

Dogs try their best to understand and please us. We owe it to them, especially if we are working in a professional capacity, to attempt to understand them and to “listen” to what they are trying to tell us. 

 

This certification will communicate the subtle and not-so-subtle nuances in dog psychology and behavior so that the time-honored partnership between man and dog can be even more profound and compassionate. Knowledge of safety and compassion in a salon goes hand in hand with an advanced understanding of the dog.
