They discuss how her career change combined her earlier training in education and her love of animals in a way that reflects and honors the increasing importance of pets in our lives.
Betsy Lane is Chicago’s only Certified Tellington TTouch® Practitioner for Companion Animals.
A lifelong student of animal behavior and training, Betsy “went pro” in 2008. Working mostly with private clients, Betsy offers a unique and effective combination of positive dog training and Tellington TTouch techniques that address underlying issues that affect dogs’ behavior. These issues range from fear or excitability to old age or injury. A no-force/no-fear approach, TTouch complements other positive training activities to bring out the best in all dogs--making them safer, happier, easier to train, and more pleasant to live with.
