Education

Because I know that schools are funded by PTAs, many of which don’t have much money, all educational services done through schools are free. I want to help in any way I can! Feel free to contact me if you have a specific service you want, or an idea for something new.

High School Career Days

I am happy to come out, with or without animals, and discuss what it’s like to be a dog trainer, what people can expect, and all the other questions teenagers looking for a career have!

High School AP Bio

Each year the Los Gatos AP Bio class has me out to teach their one session on classical condition, operant condition, instinct, positive and negative reinforcement, and all the rest. I would be happy to extend this to other high schools, as well!

Bite Safety ages 5-13

2.4 million children under the age of ten are bitten by dogs every year in the US. The vast majority of those are household or neighborhood dogs. I would like to help bring that number down, and the best way to do it is not to teach parents to tell kids not to pet dogs, but to teach kids when to stay away from dogs. Some very basic learning on body language and respect goes a long way to keeping your kids safe. If you’re interested in more information or suggesting it to your school or PTA, feel free to download this free flier and/or contact me!
