Hello, my name is Tabitha Davies. I was born and raised in a small town in Ontario Canada and moved to Southern California in the 90's  I always dreamed of being a veterinarian and in high school, I entered into an internship that allowed me to work as a veterinary technician in a veterinary clinic in Palm Desert. 

Shortly after starting my internship, as a very naive 14-year-old, I realized how many dogs were being euthanized for behavior issues and how little access to trainers we had in our area I brought up my concerns to the veterinarians I worked for and they encouraged me to pursue my education into canine behavior. 

I spent the next year raiding my local library and reading every book on training and behavior and the evolution of canids. I eventually graduated highschool and continued working as a veterinary technician and training my own dogs and horses. 

I  have now been training professionally for over 17 years and handling behavior cases for the past 9 years. I  have my own farm including goats, horses, chickens, tortoises, turtles, pig, cat, and dogs and all of them are rescued or adopted. I also have three wonderful children and my best friend, the man who keeps us all together.
