Buchman Best Behaviors
Pet Training and Behavior Consulting
I utilize a variety of training techniques with a focus on modern operant conditioning emphasizing positive reinforcement and animal choice.
My animal training journey began in 1992 with my loving 8-year-old Doberman mix. I trained her for state and local obedience competitions. I acquired my B.S. degree in Animal Ecology with a minor in Biology at Iowa State University. From there I went into the zoo field where I eventually became a curator.
In 2010 I began teaching group classes for basic dog obedience part-time with the Garden City Recreation Commission and Garden City Veterinary Clinic.
In 2018 I left the zoo field to start Buchman Bestial Behaviors to help our community understand their furrier family members. Since the switch, I have been happy to help more and more families in SWKS and surrounding states with fear-free/pain-free methods. From basic obedience, puppy training, to reactive animals that need a gentler touch.
