*****ABOUT THE TRAINERS *****
Anne O'Neill, Owner
ABCDT Certified Dog Trainer and Behavior Consultant
Anne, the proud owner of Jack Russell Terriers and a lovable
Australian Cattle Dog, realized her love for animals at an early age.
Growing up a rural part of Grapevine, Texas - Anne enjoyed all the animals in her neighborhood. She raised baby budgie parakeets, wild bunnies, puppies, kitties, frogs, snake and turtles.
Anne started studying animal behavior and training in 1999 when she adopted her first JRT "Biscuit". Then in 2002, Anne received a Certification as a Canine Obedience Instructor through the Animal Behavior and Training Associates (ABTA).
She continues to study animal behavior through professional continuing education programs and is a professional member of the Animal Behavior Associates, a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, is qualified to perform CPR & First Aide on Animals, an approved American Kennel Club CGC Evaluator and supports several local rescues and shelters with behavioral evaluations, consultations and behavior assistance.
Anne is also working and studying behavior training for other animals such as potbellied pigs, cats and horses and continues to seek new opportunities to work with all kinds of animals. Her greatest joy is experiencing each Animal-Human bond and finding the best way for that family to communicate effectively, consistently and enjoy living with their pet.
Anne teaches through blended Positive Motivation, Force-Free Techniques utilizing Reward Based Methods. Most importantly she teaches each pet owner how to communicate with their dog on a level the dog will understand and consistently respond to. Science is a big tool for Anne's approach to training and so education is a big part of your sessions with her. She has graduated thousands of dogs from very small to very large with wonderful success. CLIENT TESTIMONIALS
