“I thoroughly recommend the services of Loehr Animal Behavior for both pet owners and for animal welfare and management organisations and departments. Trish’s considerable behavior knowledge and experience extends across many species and applications. In addition, Trish is a very engaging speaker and trainer of people, making them feel comfortable in the learning environment. Trish can assist in reviewing organisation policies, programs and processes right through to working with individual animals on the ground. Trish has significant industry, animal handling and communication skills that are combined with a refreshing empathy and understanding. Staff, management, pet owners (and the pets themselves!) will enjoy Trish’s gentle, honest and down to earth approach.”
