Eastern Shore Dog is me, Beth Ann Sabo. I am a Certified Nose Work Instructor, a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA), and a Professional Member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers. I have a BS and MS in biology (George Mason University) and an MA in leadership/humanities (Duquesne University). I’m a past federal employee – I began in the Smithsonian’s Division of Birds, then moved to US Fish & Wildlife Service as a senior scientist – I was the federal forensic ornithologist at the National Fish & Wildlife Forensic Laboratory in Ashland, Oregon for 10 years. I then switched gears to the Inspector General community, where I retired as an audit executive.
I’ve been working with dogs for over 30 years and training professionally for the last 10. I’m part of a network of dog trainers who enthusiastically embrace the problem-solving abilities of dogs and train them using positive reinforcement techniques and the Humane Hierarchy.
My personal vision is a world where every adult can read and every dog comes when called.
