A Little About Arie...
I grew up with animals, and have been training dogs since my first dog as a kid: a yellow Labrador Retriever. She inspired me to start working with dogs who need behavior training, and I’ve been teaching dog obedience and behavior-modification training ever since. After being certified with Penn Foster College as a Dog Obedience Instructor, I opened Arie's Dog Training L.L.C. in 2006 and started teaching in-home behavior-modification sessions, as well as group classes. I have worked at Jack & Rascal's (www.JackandRascals.com) as the head obedience trainer for two years, two boarding kennels, and have also worked for the Assistance Dogs of the West (www.AssistanceDogsoftheWest.org), training service dogs (mainly for mobility assistance). I now train exclusively and full-time for Arie's Dog Training, and will soon open my own boarding/training/day care facility ("Arie's DogLand") near the Big I.
I am a full member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, and an approved AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator, and my dog Sarge has been a registered visiting dog with the Warm Hearts Network. I have been featured twice on both KASA Fox 2 in the morning and "Style" for short, live behavior segments (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPc4MBc1DvA), have had many training articles published in the "Ask a Pet Pro" section in Albuquerque the Magazine, and have an online training column on the Luvin' Labs Foundation website (www.LuvinLabs.com). I often provide discounted training for foster dogs in my group classes, with groups such as the Luvin Labs Foundation, Tickled Pink Weimaraner Rescue, Justice Great Dane Rescue, EnchantMutts, the Doberman Rescue of NM, etc. I am frequently referred to by Animal Humane as a trainer/behaviorist for help with newly adopted dogs, and have recently become a volunteer for the city shelter, helping out mainly at the Westside shelter. I have been featured on Living Social, running the first dog training promo in the state, and had over 300 vouchers sold, with 100% positive customer feedback. I was voted "Best Dog Training" with Albuquerque the Magazine's annual "Best of the City" for 2012 and 2013. My fiance and I also do fostering of dogs and cats, typically through the city shelter (www.cabq.gov/pets), as often as we can.
I DO use and promote:
- Reward-based training methods
- Natural and common-sense behavior modification
- A well-rounded and holistic training approach including a healthy diet
- Training tools such as the Thundershirt (which I also sell),
melatonin, lavender oil, and Rescue Remedy when needed
I DON'T use and promote:
- Fear or punishment-based methods
- Cesar Millan training methods
