Diane Anderson, a long-time guide dog puppy raiser, puts her extensive knowledge and skills to work conducting one-on-one consultations and classes on all phases of dog obedience, dog behavior and responsible dog ownership. She also helps individuals and families select the best dog for their lifestyle and living conditions.
From before she began to badger her parents for a dog when she was five, an intense passion and love for dogs has been a part of Diane's character. She currently owns a black Labrador retriever, Zoom, who she takes to hospitals and nursing homes as a therapy dog and to schools and libraries where she teaches dog safety to children. Most of the time Diane has a guide dog in training by her side. The trainee lives with Diane's family and goes to meetings, doctor's appointments, grocery shopping, on airplanes and boats, anywhere this dynamic, energetic woman goes.
Diane believes the best time to begin training your dog is before it develops behavioral problems, so getting your puppy started as early as possible is important; a nine week old dog is not too young. But even older dogs of any breed can learn to behave appropriately and respond to a wide array of commands if given the right training.
Diane's techniques will not alter your precious pet's personality; but will provide you with a well-adjusted, happy, obedient, responsive dog.
A well-behaved dog is a happy dog with a happy family!
