Tamre first became obsessed with dogs, dog training, and the overall well-being of dogs and their humans while volunteering at a no-kill animal shelter years ago. She compares the shelter experience to a crash course in dog behavior. It helped her learn about many different dog breeds and dog personalities in short order.
After volunteering at the shelter for a few years, Tamre came to the realization that the best way to help dogs was to keep them out of the shelters. It was then that she began her journey to become a certified trainer.
Tamre started her formal studies at the Animal Behavior College. After graduation, she wanted more and applied to the Karen Pryor Academy. She was accepted to their program and, after an extensive course of study, she received her KPA-CTP designation. (For those not familiar with Karen Pryor’s work, Karen was the pioneer of positive-based training for dogs. Positive reinforcement principles can be used to change the behavior in pets, kids, anyone—without yelling, threats, force, punishment or pain.)
Tamre regularly attends seminars and classes to continue her education and to ensure she is on top of the most current science-based positive reinforcement techniques. She comes well-equipped to help your dog make better choices and does so in part by keeping minds engaged and bodies active.
When Tamre is not having fun with your dog, she enjoys spending time with her pups on the trails, in the water, and at home doing scent-work activities, training games, and more.
Tamre uses she/her pronouns.
