Traci is the Dallas Dog Training Examiner at Examiner.com, which allows her to get the word out to many people and show them how many activities and training opportunities there are in Texas that they can participate in with their dogs. .
Traci’s competition in dog sports and experience in print and film media has allowed her to broaden the set of skills and tools that she uses to train dogs and their humans. Lessons learned while training for Flyball, Agility, Rally, Obedience, Conformation, Herding, Freestyle, Frisbee, and Therapy work translate into enhanced methods of teaching pets to be better companions and family members AND allow us to have fun with them. Traci also created the Hollywood Dog™ classes and workshops to teach pet dog owners the skills necessary and provide direct access to allow them to break into show business, and Reactive Dog™ classes to help people learn to manage their dogs’ out of control behaviors and teach the dog the skills needed to have more normal interactions with the world around them.
“I never stop learning skills and methods of training. By taking what I learn from study, competition, seminars and workshops, and working with nationally recognized experts in the fields of training, behavior, and nutrition, then incorporating it into my curriculum and methods of teaching, I can tailor my training programs to each individual situation and goals. I help open the lines of communication between the dog and owner and use a Train the Trainer process to set in motion a lifetime of learning that encourages pet owners to forgo the use of punishments in favor of positive reinforcement, novel training, and enrichment to shape good behavior."
