March 15th was a great day! I officially became part of the Heeling Hounds team! If you don’t know who Heeling Hounds are or the founder, Glenda Herrin, check out www.heelinghounds.com.
In a nutshell, Heeling Hounds is a locally operated dog training business serving El Paso residents and their pups. Glenda is dedicated to utilizing positive reinforcement in teaching obedience and behavior modification. She educates clients in canine body language while demonstrating training techniques during her sessions. Glenda has a calm, non-judgemental approach and meets each client and their dog(s) where they are and tailoring training to meet their needs. This part in particular is a perfect match for me, since social work is at the heart of my value system.
I get to meet my first clients this week! Check back for updates, more tips, funny stories and upcoming events!
