I'm Deb Bauer.  I'm a holistic dog behavior and well-being coach.  I assist and support people who want to give their dogs the very best lifestyle and quality of life possible.  I do this by considering all aspects of the dogs' lives - environment, diet, exercise, sleep, enrichment, socialization, and more.  Each adjustment made to a dog's lifestyle has the potential to increase wellness, longevity, more desirable behaviors, and well-being.  

I also am a world-renowned expert with blind and/or deaf dogs.  I teach people how to communicate effectively with their visually and/or hearing-impaired dogs to teach them effective life skills, new tricks, and to ensure a happy and wonderful quality of life.  I have clients world-wide who have made the choice to give their dogs the best life possible.
