What is a Canine Behavior Consultant?

A CBC specializes in Canine Behavior, Ethology / History, Anatomy / Physiology, Animal Husbandry / Nutrition, Training Tools and Techniques. Training is one of many "tool boxes" used by a CBC and often times, not necessary to help your Dog overcome behavioral issues. CBCs are kind of like a holistic Dog trainer.

Who needs a CBC and When?

Shelter / Rescue Workers, Dog Owners, Trainers and even Veterinarians often use the help of a CBC.
But, most often Dogs with behavioral issues that may endanger the owners or the Dogs themselves can benefit.
"At risk" Dogs are those that may end up surrendered to shelters or worse, euthanized due to behavioral issues. Before that happens a Canine Behavior Consultant can be called upon to keep your Dog safe, happy and with your family forever.

 

Who uses a CBC

My husband and I adopted a mixed breed female dog from a Portland shelter in late 2011. We knew this dog had medical problems, but soon discovered she had behavior issues.She was afraid of men, sudden movements,loud sounds, meeting new people and the outdoors. After 2 months I learned about Schel H. and hired him to begin walking her. I was relieved to see she took to Schel right away. Schel worked with her 3-4 days a week and I noticed she was becoming calmer and more confident in his care. Schel helped our dog for over four plus years until we moved to a new city. I refer to Schel as “ The Mr. Rogers” of the dog world. He is calm, patient, consistent and experienced working with dogs. He was helpful for helping our dog and I feel good recommending Schel for any dog owner that needs a dog walker, or help with a dog with behavior difficulties.
