While there are countless quality, up-to-date publications on the market covering all aspects of pet dog behavior and training, industry resources in the growing field of animal behavior consultancy have largely lacked the type of information presented in Tudge’s book. There is a particular shortage of guidance specifically targeting optimizing a professional's relationship with their clients. With a firm emphasis on learning styles and best teaching practices, Tudge offers practical solutions to the many long-standing client issues faced regularly by pet professionals, including conflict resolution, lack of compliance and simply overwhelming clients with industry jargon or too much information.
The work also features a unique ‘On Task Skill Coaching’ component that includes everything a professional animal behavior consultant needs to focus on, ranging from the initial approach and how to conduct a functional assessment in a behavior case, to ensuring the environment is conducive to learning and the actual application of experiential learning, which is the primary focus of much of the text.
“Tudge’s book is not just a training guide but a full-blown manual on how to be a teacher, mentor and manager of people,” said Texas-based professor, Robert Allen King, PhD. “The author is a true forerunner in the field with knowledge from all facets of life, and the individuals in the field are bettering the world through their kindness and willingness to make other peoples’ relationships better with their animals, even if it is an uphill battle.”
Tudge started out in the hospitality industry and held executive positions worldwide, where she gained a broad knowledge of business, practical management, leadership and employee development experience. As the founder and president of The Pet Professional Guild, DogNostics eLearning and The DogSmith, Tudge has substantial leadership experience in the pet industry and has now penned the book to share her formidable knowledge with other pet industry professionals.
People Training Skills for Pet Professionals – Your essential guide to engaging, educating and empowering your human clients is published and available through Lulu.com. It will also be available on mainstream websites including Amazon and Barnes & Noble in the coming weeks. The eBook ISBM # 978-1-4834-4057-
