Susan is a certified dog trainer with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and an honors graduate of the ABC Animal Behavior College. Presently, Susan is working as a private in home dog trainer and also maintains a leadership role as a senior volunteer for LAAS at the WLA Shelter where she concentrates primarily on low-stress behavior modification of resident pit bulls and other power breeds. In addition Susan assists with shelter volunteer training, dog handling and post-adoption support for the public. The scope of her work includes barrier aggression, leash work and reactivity, obedience, muzzle work, dog-to dog introductions and playgroup management.
As a private trainer she works with puppies, adolescents and senior dogs of all breeds and sizes, many of which were previously homed in shelters, fosters or rescues. Susan employs a science based training philosophy and is inspired by the work of Patricia McConnell, Ian Dunbar and Jean Donaldson.
Michael Carmona, M.S. has a Masters Degree in Applied Behavior Analysis, is a Certified Dog Trainer and Accredited Pet Training Instructor. While conducted behavior modification services to the human population, Mr. Carmona realized that many of the behavior-change techniques used by behavior analysts were universally applicable across species, as were the scientific principles on which those techniques were based. Mr. Carmona felt that these well-validated practices used to help humans exhibiting behavior problems offered a rich and robust set of procedures and solutions for dogs with behavior problems. Discovering that behavior analysis provided a humane ethic from which to understand, predict and change dog behavior, Mr. Carmona decided to devote his life to helping canine owners with behavioral problems and founded Master Dog Training.
Mr. Carmona believes in teaching dog owners about their dog's natural drives and how to work with them opposed to working against them for a harmonious relationship.
