In 2005 I became a Certified Professional Dog Trainer via the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers. I attend national conferences, seminars, and stay current with books, professional journals and whatever I come upon that relates to dogs, their training, health and well-being. This keeps me up-to-date on research and training methods.

As an advocate for canine wellness, I was pleased to be invited to teach dog training classes at The Raw Connection when it opened in April, 2006. The store’s approach to pet health and well-being matches my philosophy of what is best for our dogs. – Andee Burleigh
