Dallas, TX, July 21, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- In a day and age that seems to have an answer for everything, Susan Strough has found a missing link in Dallas: canine behavior therapy. With over six years as a behavior and training specialist under her belt, Strough will officially launch her title as Dallas’s Canine Behaviour Expert at the end of July. The catch is the fact that she plans to train owners just as much as she trains their pets.
Although Strough’s timing partners nicely with America’s latest canine psychology craze, she has been successfully practicing her techniques for years. While embracing positive reinforcement, Strough’s methods are assertive and tailored to meet the individual needs of her clients. She bases her services on her belief that unique problems call for unique solutions. “Most behavioral problems are psychological and have to be dealt with on a case by case basis,” says Strough. “No two dogs are the same.”
Strough’s gift of canine communication was recognized while fostering homeless dogs needing training in order to find owners. She then began her career as a behavior and training specialist, gaining numerous testaments to her techniques. "Susan Strough was a natural with my Golden Retriever, Bailey,” says Susan Risdon. “Bailey stayed with Susan for two weeks and came back to me an amazing, obedient dog. She still rings the bell to go outside and walks next to me like a guide dog!"
Susan Strough is a professional level member of the International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP), the same organization of which the famed Cesar Milan is an honorary member and uses as his resource for professional referrals. The IACP evaluates standards and professional status issued by other Canine Associations and requires a lengthy application process, professional testimonials, and high, consistent standards of service.
Although Strough feels fortunate to have found her calling, she speaks candidly about the ‘secrets’ of her methods. “It’s no secret. I look at behavioral issues from the dog’s perspective and utilize my knowledge of canine behavior patterns, beginning with pack leadership. What good is a trained dog if he does not respect his owner?”
Perhaps Dallas’ Diane Fleener has the most compelling argument, “Susan Strough is Dallas' counterpart to the Dog Whisperer. She knows dog psychology.”
