My name is Heather Conley, and I arrived in Cuenca two years ago today to begin my retirement. Before that, I owned a dog business in Manhattan for 25 years, which trained and boarded dogs. (You can look me up. We kept our website active for sentimental reasons. http://www.thedoghousenyc.com.) It gave me years of delight. Here, I wanted to get the lay of the land before I plunged in “knowing it all” and see how I could fit in. I think I have done that now, and I continue to learn. But I have missed dogs! And I’m ready to be back in service.
I was certified in dog training and dog behavior by the prestigious Karen Pryor Academy in 2009, the first from Manhattan. My training methods are completely force-free and long-lasting. I can teach a puppy foundation good manners that will last her life. I can rehabilitate traumatized dogs. I can address problem behaviors that crop up. In technical terms, I use “positive reinforcement” and “operational conditioning”. In layman’s terms, I use a clicker.
I will be posting more here in coming weeks, offering services and products. I look forward to working with some of you and helping you out.
