Presenter Bio:

Chris Bach began to study dogs as soon as she was old enough to hold a leash and the result of her life-long passion for dogs is her unique, innovative, reliable and, most importantly, distinctly dog-friendly approach to training called THE THIRD WAY.

As an adult, Chris used her evolving theories and techniques to become a top obedience trial competitor with a loyal following of students who also competed successfully in obedience and other dog sports. She then branched out into non-competitive venues by counseling pet owners and becoming actively involved with the service dog industry. Her love for working with puppies resulted in her developing a Puppy Kindergarten class curriculum that is cutting edge in the industry today.  Chris is a charter board member of the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants and a popular speaker about dog behavior and training in both the U.S. and Canada.
