About Dee Ganley
Author of 'Changing People Changing Dogs', Dee has been working with dogs and horses for the past 35+ years and is the sole proprietor of Dee Ganley Grooming and Training Service based in New Hampshire USA.
Dee has competed in the sports of Schutzhund, AKC OB and is now doing some herding, agility and freestyle with her current four-footed friends. Dee also does the evals for the Paws to Read program (modelled after R.E.A.D) which was developed in her area so dogs and their handlers go into the schools / library's and children read to the dogs. It's a huge success for all involved.
Dee has an extensive background in teaching personal protection and working with many Police and Service Dog handlers. Dee works with and coaches Search and Rescue and Police dog handlers for competition events. "The last team I worked with won the 2003 Obedience, Scent and Obstacle course events and was number 1 all around in Canada."
As Training Director for the Upper Valley Humane Society in New Hampshire, USA for over 5 years, Dee built a comprehensive system of management and interaction that measurably reduced stress and improved the quality of life for dogs in the kennels. Karen Pryor was a regular visitor working with Dee to explore the detailed use of clickers leading to a range of environmental strategies and handling techniques to improve the life quality of kennel dogs.
Dee specialises in "difficult dogs" and has been very successful as both the behaviour consultant for one of the top 5 shelters in the USA, and as a private consultant/trainer for unruly and aggressive dogs.
"When I started back in 1999 with UVHS our Euthanasia rate was around 43%. By implementing our self-control through positive reinforcement and management, by 2001 we dropped it to about 23%"
