Why or how did you become a dog trainer?

I have always been fascinated by human relationships and animal behavior. It was either be a family therapist or a veterinarian. Dog trainer became the obvious choice, and meeting Doug became the catalyst for it all. The animals taught us the secrets, and together we have developed a method of communicating with all animals. Our mission is to share it with as many people as we can, so we can save as many lives as possible by keeping dogs in their homes and out of shelters. 

What makes Elizabeth a gifted trainer?

One of the reasons I was attracted to Elizabeth was her deep compassion for all animals, and her strong desire to change how people interacted with them. She always sees the good in people and dogs, and is quickly able to pinpoint the disparity in a relationship in order to set it right.” ~ Doug

What are you passionate about in life outside dogs?

I have always been fascinated by nature, behavior, psychology and spirituality. When I am not studying animals, I study Near Death Experiences. I love sharing both of my passions with anyone who is interested in learning more.
