hughes The Dog School - (Sara Schevis)

"If you have a passion for dogs and an interest in canine behavior and training, I would definitely recommend interning at The Dog School. I may have had an advantage over other interns learning about dog training in the classroom here at UVM [ASCI 154] as well as observing, participating, and training during obedience, agility, spirited dog classes and private behavior consultations at the training school. This internship allowed me to work on my people skills working with the owners and creating relationships with the dogs by understanding their behaviors through body language, their form of communication. I am beginning to think I know how to speak dog! Interning here has prepared me for my future plans of training working dogs being used for search and rescue, drugs and narcotic search and bomb detection. I will remember this experience as the beginning and certainly not the end of my dog training career."
