Ventura, CA (PressExposure) April 21, 2009 -- Acclaimed dog trainer and behavior coach Joan Mayer shares her expertise and philosophy in a new dog-friendly advice column for Noozhawk.com, the online newspaper that delivers essential local news and community information to Santa Barbara, Goleta, Montecito, Carpinteria and beyond!
âAsk the Inquisitive Canineâ offers readers the opportunity to ask Mayer, a professional dog trainer, about specific dog behaviors and is designed to be a fun and interactive place where inquisitive dog owners can seek practical guidance and solutions.
âThese days we all tend to lead remarkably full and busy lives,â said Mayer, who offers dog training in Santa Barbara and Ventura. âBut I strongly believe that no matter how little time you have to spare, you can take steps toward better understanding your dog. With this insight into canine behavior and communication, you can work towards positively reinforcing the behaviors you want â while limiting and preventing inappropriate habits â so you can develop a better relationship with your dog.â
Mayer is a Certified Pet Dog Trainer and founder of The Inquisitive Canine, where her love-of-dog training approach goes beyond traditional dog obedience classes [http://inquisitivecanine.com/dogtraining-classes.php] to highlight the importance of understanding canine behavior so that dog owners can successfully motivate their dogs to develop good manners through techniques that reward and motivate.
"There is no doubt that Santa Barbara is a dog-friendly community and, as a longtime owner of Alaskan malamutes, I know just how important our four-legged friends are to us," said William M. Macfadyen, founder and publisher of Noozhawk. "We are very excited to team up with Joan Mayer, whose expertise with dogs and their owners is unrivaled and whose enthusiasm for her subject has already connected her with our readers."
