Welcome to Dani's Dog Page!


    Dani's dog-training and behavior-consulting practice, Dogs & Their People, is all about promoting healthy and happy relationships between dogs and their people.  To help accomplish this goal, Dani also focuses on the client-consultant relationship.  She writes about this extensively in her book "Teaching People Teaching Dogs" (Howln Moon Press, 2006).  

    Dani is a Faculty member in the Karen Pryor Academy for Animal Training and Behavior whose objective it is to graduate excellent trainers and teachers.  She is a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant through the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC), a Team Evaluator for the Warm Hearts Network, a Program of Animal Humane, and a Field Representative/Instructor for Paws With a Cause. She holds a Certificate of Excellence from Dr. Susan G. Friedman's Applied Behavior Analysis Professional Course.

    Dani lives in New Mexico with her husband, Jerry, and their German Shepherds whom she has trained and titled in competition obedience, tracking, and herding.  This website is all about the dogs!
