Ami Moore Chicago Dog Trainer Graduates from Humane Society of United States University

Ami Moore the Chicago Dog Whisperer completed a course offered by the Humans Society of the United States University that covered all aspects of running a behavior hot line for the public. This behavior hot line is designed to help frustrated dog and cat owners keep their pets at happy at home.

Chicago, IL, October 16, 2008 --( Attention Chicago-area pet owners: A new pet behavior hotline may be coming to your neighborhood soon.

Local dog expert and canine behaviorist Ami Moore, the Dog Whisperer of Chicago, recently completed an 8-week course provided by the Humane Society of the United States’ Humane Society University to learn how to create a telephone hotline designed to help pet owners handle common animal behavior problems.

Ami Moore, who has trained dogs and exotic animals, already possessed skills to help pet owners deal with behavior issues; however, she feels that continued education is necessary in order to offer her clients the most up-to-date advice.

“My belief is that there is always something new, better or different for me to learn,” Ami Moore states.

Through the pet animal behavior hotline course, Ami Moore learned the importance of communicating to frustrated pet owners in a gentle, kind and compassionate manner. She also learned that information is better digested by pet owners in small, easy-to-remember tidbits.

A pet behavior hotline offers dog and cat owners instructions concerning how to modify behavior problems such as hyperactivity, housebreaking, crate and litter box training, socialization and destructive chewing or clawing. Information about how to introduce new pets to a household can also be accessed.

Ami Moore says the presence of local hotlines can reduce the number of pets brought to animal shelters and increase owner satisfaction with their dogs behavior.

“I plan on offering a free dog behavior hotline with pre-recorded tidbits, tricks, tips and techniques that will be available to the public,” Ami Moore, the Chicago Dog Coach says. “It is one of the ways that I can give back to the community and even though Chicago is a no-kill city-I want to really help the public keep their pets happy and at home.”

In addition to completing the dog and cat behavior hotline course, Ami Moore is in the process of completing a HSUS Pets for Life certificate program to improve her knowledge as a Chicago dog coach. She hopes to complete the four-course program by late 2009.

The series of courses is designed to help those who work with animals learn the latest techniques available to establish a behavior evaluation program, improve animal handling, reduce stress levels in animals, and make informed decisions regarding adoption matches.

“I work with many people who have gotten their dogs from shelters, and I also volunteer at shelters in the Chicago area,” Moore says.

“The more information that I have as an educated professional dog expert, the better I can serve the needs of my community in Chicago.”
