I live in Singapore, where I work as a certified dog trainer and behavior consultant for Puppy Colours Academy. I have long been interested in what causes fear in dogs and ways to alleviate that fear, starting with training puppies on life and social skills. My career path was sparked from my lifelong pas-sion for animals and my dog, Josh - a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. I realized how fearful he was and found myself totally unprepared. I started looking for ways to help Josh and began training him us-ing reward-based training methods like those used at Bergin to help him overcome his fears. I saw how Josh became happier and more confident each day and decided to go to the US and learn more about dog behavior, which brought me to Bergin University to earn my Masters degree, deepen my knowledge of the human-canine bond, and help me in my career.
