Meet Heather

Dogs are great!  and Heather has a knack for communicating with them!  Though highly educated and once professionally employed, when Heather heard the call of the woods and fields she never looked back.   She focused instead on educating herself about what dogs want, how they communicate and how they learn.  Her special joy is watching the dogs interact with one another, and she loves hosting them as boarding guests.  She also loves working with parent owners, celebrating their relationships with their dogs.

Heather is certified by the Karen Pryor Academy of Dog Behavior and Training.  She is also certified by the American Red Cross in pet first aid.  And as the country moves in the direction of certifying dog walkers – a trend that assures the highest levels of professional competence – The Dog House NYC will be in November 2014 among the first NYC dog walkers to be certified.
