From Fins to Paws, Dolphins to Dogs
Lindy Langum, BS, CCS
What: Degree in Biological Sciences with an emphasis in animal behavior, marine animal training and husbandry internships through Dolphin Quest Oahu and the Navy Marine Mammal Program, Certified in Canine Studies from the Northwest School of Canine Studies, trainer of many animal species, and dog ambassador!
Where: Originally from the Mount Rushmore State, to the Centennial State, to the Land Down Under, to the Aloha State, to the Golden State, just to end up settling down and loving the Evergreen State. I enjoy spending time with my rescue pit bull terrier, Houdini, my standard poodle, Boudreaux, and my human companion, Rochford in our North Lynnwood home.
When: Infinity and Beyond - I acted like a dog when I was young until my parents took me to get a dog from a local rescue so I'd stop barking at the neighbors walking by the house (I'll let you decide if I'm telling the truth or not). In 2nd grade I took that first dog, Lucky, to show-and-tell and was so proud to show off all the tricks I'd trained her (jump through hoop, go to sleep, shake, bang, balance a treat, etc.). Nowadays I usually act like a human... if you're lucky - just don't surprise me.
How: I love sharing with owners what I've learned from my education, multi-species training, and 7 years of owner/dog relationship building, training, and observations to bring you some help and fun for you and your dog. I focus on reward-based training and behavior modification techniques that can be applied and used to train many animal species, even fish! I treat each dog as an individual so we can use their strengths and motivations to help them learn appropriate behaviors. Training your dog results in a peaceful household and a strengthened bond between you and your canine, as you learn to interact and clearly communicate with each other.
Extra Biscuit: I love making dog obstacles out of PVC pipe - ask and I can make!
