Pamela’s unique approach includes a system that she has developed through years of research and personal experience. Also she has a gift for connecting with animals. They respond to her almost immediately. Pamela will teach you what you need to know to do the same for your dog. She will also make sure you have a chance to apply what you are learning throughout the process so that you will quickly have the confidence you need to get the positive behavior you desire from your dog.

Pamela has been helping her dog Lily a Maltese who has reactivity issues, by using the BAT method. The Behavior Adjustment Training Method helps the dog to make their own choice when they are going to accept the trigger, (which could be people or other dogs) on their own time and from the space needed for their comfort level. Lily has been responding very well to this method.

If you have a reactive dog and need help please leave your information on the contact page and I will get back to you ASAP.

Melanie Pappas

Dog Walker and Sitter

Since I was a child, I have always had a significant knack for understanding animals and their needs as well as building strong, successful relationships with them. I have a true passion for what I do and will always make a pet’s happiness and well being my number one priority. Working with animals in this way has proven to be the most rewarding experience and profession I could ask for. I have a lifetime of personal experience caring for dogs, cats and rabbits as well as two years in professional pet care including substantial veterinary assistant experience. I am confident handling all sizes and breeds of dogs and am happy to care for cats, rabbits, rodents, reptiles, fish and birds. In my personal life, my cat Eddie is a member of the family. It is important that I treat every pet that I work with as such. It is my mission to always provide truly personal, loving, and respectful services.
