'My dog, my Friend' is currently owned and operated by Gayla McCarthy, as a sole proprietor. Given the number of clients seeking services for aggression issues, it will be changed to a Limited Liability Corporation in the near future.
I am a certified dog trainer and honor graduate of Animal Behavior College. I am an ABC mentor trainer and an AKC certified CGC evaluator.
My belief is that 95% of all desirable behaviors can be taught without employing any type of punishment. However, not all of our dog's behaviors are desirable and some "self-rewarding" behaviors may require "corrections."
A truly effective training program must be flexible and employ whatever methods are appropriate for the individual dog and the circumstances. My goal is to create a custom program that will fit your needs.
