Grisha has earned a Master’s in Mathematics from Bryn Mawr College and most of a Master’s in Psychology with an emphasis in animal behavior at Antioch University. Her first career as a theoretical mathematician and college instructor has served her well for the last decade and a half as a dog trainer and behavior consultant, because she relies heavily on the problem solving, critical thinking, and teaching skills she gained in that field. This workshop will provide CEU units for CCPDT and CBATI (TBD)
Philosophy: In a culture obsessed with dominance, more power may seem like the last thing you want to give your dog. But empowerment is actually an efficient, effective way to solve behavior problems. When you remove obstacles in the way of learning and give dogs a way to meet their needs, their 'misbehavior' disappears.
