Paula Teel:

"I have had at least one dog as a member of my family for over twenty years. My current crew consists of a Black Labrador, a Tree Walker Coonhound and a Shepherd Collie mix. All three of my kids are rescues. I am actively involved with several different rescue organizations. My Labrador is a Certified Therapy dog. She also has earned her Rally Beginner Novice A title and is one leg away from earning her Obedience Beginner Novice B title. My nick name at work is “The crazy dog lady” because I am such a dog lover…..personally I take it as a compliment. Dogs fill a special place in my heart that no human will ever be able to fill.

I have participated in obedience training for close to 20 years. About three years ago, I decided I wanted to start training dogs so I enrolled in the Animal Behavior College dog training program. I successfully completed the one-year program and have been training dogs ever since. My training approach focuses on positive reinforcement, with mild correction when necessary.

The time I spend working with my dogs enables me to build a special bond with each one of them. By taking the time to attend a training class, you will be able to do the same with your dog. Training takes time and energy, but it is so worth it!"
