Trish King is a nationally recognized dog behavior and training expert. Her home is currently filled with two dogs: Strider, a formerly stray German Shepherd and Luke, a Bull Terrier Mix. Trish has extensively studied, taught, and written about dogs. She has been at MHS since 1994 and established the Canine Behavior Academy (formerly CITA) program. She is a Certified Pet Dog Trainer (CPDT) and a Certified Dog Behavior Counselor (CDBC). In September 2004, Trish’s book Parenting Your Dog was published to wide acclaim.
Trish frequently teaches workshops and seminars on dog behavior, canine management, behavior assessment and handling difficult dogs. She is also an instructor for the Officer Training Academy at MHS and was a member of the panel that developed the Delta Society’s Professional Standards for Dog Trainers: Effective, Humane Principles. She has spoken at several national conferences, including APDT, HSUS and AHA.
Trish says she is “eternally fascinated by canine communication and human interactions with animals.” And people and their animal companions are the better for it.
