When Dee rescued Farley, a Border Collie who "had issues", her journey into animal behavior began. Dee was motivated to learn quickly in order to manage Farley and keep him safe. They attended the classes and private consultations offered by Train the Bay—Farley showed progress, which further motivated Dee to obtain her CPDT-KA certification. Today, Dee teaches dog training classes and her dog demonstrates for the class. Dee credits Farley for being a wonderful teacher.
