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 federal employee, and 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’m now an audit executive.
I’ve been working with dogs for over 30 years and training professionally for the last 9. 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.
