Dee had a medical career as a Physician Assistant for many years and was slowing down her work schedule when in 2000 she rescued Farley, a Border Collie who “had issues”. With that, her journey into animal behavior took off. She was motivated to learn quickly in order to manage Farley and keep him safe.
At the time, she was a volunteer at Berkeley Humane, and she and Farley attended the classes and private consultations that were offered. Farley showed progress, which further motivated Dee to study for her professional dog training certification and to receive the CPDT-KA. Two years later, with dedication on both ends of the leash, she taught group dog training classes with Farley as the demonstration dog. Dee and Farley have come a long way, and Dee credits Farley for being a wonderful teacher.
She is shown here with her current training partner, Tess.
