Doggin’ Around Dog Trainer

Ellen Henderson
CPDT and AKC CGC Certified
Ellen has been living with dogs her whole life and has been working with them professionally since 2008 as a trainer/dog handler. Once she graduated from CSULB with a degree in psychology she quickly realized she wanted to make a career out of her passion: working with dogs and their owners.

To further her knowledge of dog behaviors and training, she has studied many other methods including world renowned trainer Dr. Ian Dunbar, and attended his seminar in San Diego 2012. Ellen also loves reading books by her favorite dog mentors Karen Pryor, Patricia McConnell, Ian Dunbar and numerous others.

Her strengths lie in rehabilitating shy/aggressive dogs back into the pack. Teaching a dog how to be a “dog” again is so rewarding. Ellen plans on working in this field until she retires and is hungry to continue learning and teaching all she can about man’s best friend.
