Presented by HEARTland Positive Dog Training Alliance
HEARTland Positive Dog Training Alliance (HEART) hosted renowned biologist and animal behaviorist, Ken Ramirez for a weekend of education about animal behavior and training, conceptual learning in dogs and other animals, social integration of dangerous and aggressive animals, and behavior training as a tool to aid in animal conservation.
Laura Hills of The Dog’s Spot Dog Training Center was the featured speaker and host of the May meeting of the HEART land Positive Dog Training Alliance (HEART). Hills, a longtime member of HEART and a well-known member of the Kansas City area training community spoke to fellow HEART members about K9 Nose Work®.
At their March meeting, members of HEARTland Positive Dog Training Alliance (HEART) learned about the new Kansas City chapter of Pets for Vets from Chapter Co-Director and organizer Avery Shahandeh. Pets for Vets helps heal the emotional wounds of military veterans by pairing that veteran with a rescued shelter animal specifically selected for compatibility and then trained as a companion animal for the vet. The goal is to save a shelter animal who might be facing euthanasia and to train them to help returning vets having difficulties transitioning back to civilian life.
Debra Murray, owner of SmartyPaws, was the featured speaker at the January meeting of the HEARTland Positive Dog Training Alliance (HEART). Murray, a member of HEART since 2011, a veteran dog trainer, and a Licensed Presenter and trainer for the Dogs & Storks® and Dogs & Toddlers® programs spoke to fellow HEART members about the transition problems faced by families as they move from a pet-only family to baby/toddler-&-pet family and programs to help them.
HEART is an alliance of trainers, veterinary professionals, dog owners and other pet services providers committed to force-free, positive training and handling.
