I have had experience with dogs for my entire life. I grew up with two beautiful lab/chow mix dogs. I raised them and trained them myself. I am a working professional and am a dog trainer.
I was a Level 3 volunteer for PAWS Chicago. I have gone through two, six-week training classes with Joan Harris from K9 University and Kasey Weber, Animal Care Manager at PAWS. Training included the basics to behavior modification with clicker training, and specific handling techniques for strong, reactive shelter dogs. In addition to walking any level dog, Level 3 volunteers conduct dog to dog interactions, monitor play groups, and participate in advanced behavior modification. I also participated in Canine Conditioning at K9 University with Joan Harris and Jordan Coulson from Define Canine that included agility, FitPAWS, and behavior modification through clicker training.
Please let me know if your dog is house trained and crate trained (or can be left out without accidents or destructive behavior).
I work a mile from home so I am able to come home for lunch for an additional potty break and walk (45 minutes). I have a large and extra large crate with a separator to make smaller if necessary. I live in a condo with other dogs, so please make a note if your pup is dog friendly.
