Diane has trained for us since we were called PR DOG, giving her the prize for WOOFS! trainer seniority. As a lead instructor, Diane places a high value on continuing education. She has attended the APDT conference every year since 2003 when she earned her CPDT certification, and her day job in science publishing gives her access to the most recent literature on animal behavior and cognition.
Diane has volunteered with the US Park Police Horse Mounted Unit horses in Washington, D.C. since 2006. She says, “I love working with animals and helping humans communicate effectively with them. My favorite part of teaching is finding creative solutions to problem behaviors.”
