SPEAKERTalking Really Gets My Tail Wagging!

As a kid, my nickname was SSSHHHH.  I was verbal.  I was loud.  I was confident.  And I still am!  Speaking to small groups or massive audiences, to kids, parents, professionals, retirees or everyday dog lovers, lecturing always gets my tail wagging!   

Let's work together to  create a dynamic discussion for your audiences!  I’ll engage your listeners and leave them with a new understanding of themselves-- their children, clients, bosses, partners, etc.-- through a lively investigation of the canine world.

At the end of the day?  Dogs and people have a lot in common. Dogs are fun-loving, nonjudgmental and curious! They come in all sizes, colors and personalities types.  Since canine society is a bit less complex than our human one, it's the perfect platform from which to open any discussion!  

Here are some of my popular lecture topics >>>

WRITER | Books & Blogs

Growing up in a sport-centric community, I was the clumsy kid who rose to fame as a certifiable "dog magnet."  More interested in playing with dogs than soccer balls I was told again and again “You are way too into dogs!”  Like that was a bad thing!  When I couldn't be with dogs?  I was reading and writing about them!   

Fast-forward a few decades, and you’ll find me doing the same thing!  Choose from one of my 13 books books, read my blogs on line to get both solutions and a fresh look at that beloved dog you adore.  Fortunately teaching your dog or puppy to adapt to your lifestyle doesn't have to be hard or expensive to be affective.  Whether you pick up a book or read a blog you'll have my support every step of the way!
