In 2015 Bethany started an Anthrozoology degree at Carroll College in Helena, Montana. During her time there, she learned about the history and science of human-animal relationships. Her curriculum focused on learning theory, animal behavior, animal welfare and horsemanship. She even fostered and trained multiple dogs as part of her program so that she could put her science-based knowledge into real-world practice.
She was given the opportunity to gain hundreds of hours training dogs under the guidance of experienced professionals. At the core of this education were classes focusing on learning theory and careful prodding of student minds to make us carefully consider both the human and animal side of any situation.
She lives in Tucker with her senior lab mix Bishop, and her mutt Sully. Sully is reactive towards humans, dogs, and has separation anxiety So Bethany is well versed in the ups and downs of living with such a dog. She loves both of her dogs very much and enjoys walking and training around her neighborhood with them.
Bethany is a perpetual student and hopes to continue her education in everything dog! She would love to bring the joy of dog training to others around the world!
