Barbara Shumannfang, PhD, CPDT is excited about learning, animals, empathy, teaching, connecting, and finding ways to spread compassion. Starting in 1999 she did this in her role as a dog trainer by helping families, shelter dogs, and veterinary staff, and also by writing articles, a blog and two books (Happy Kids, Happy Dogs: Building a Friendship Right From the Start and Puppy Savvy: The Pocket Guide to Raising Your Dog Without Going Bonkers).
Now Barbara is shifting her focus to visual media to explore these same topics and no longer seeing dog training clients. You can still read her advice by doing a keyword search at the Very Fetching blog. Happy training!
