She is also an alumni and Mentor Trainer of ABC (Animal Behavior College). She specializes in aggression, fear management, and obedience training in and around the Las Vegas valley. Although her main focus is canines, Zara has worked with a wide range of animals from horses to ferrets. Zara applies the science and psychology behind learning to help animals learn new behaviors and overcome old ones. It is because of this background that she understands the value of positive, compassionate methods when working with any animal. She has authored numerous articles on the subject of animal behavior and training as well as published a cookbook for dogs and their families. Zara's approach uses positive reinforcement, a technique that has had amazing results across the board for many years. Zara will teach you what you need to know to create peace, harmony, and to understand what your dogs are trying to tell you.
