Jan Greenberg – Executive Assistant to Board, Service Dog Trainer and Educator
After graduating from the University of Northern Colorado with a B.S. in Psychology, it was a natural step for me to work with dogs in the future. I started training dogs in 2000. Having trained traditionally for 10 years, I joined Freedom Dogs (www.freedomdogs.org) and started “positive” operant training. There I became a Certified Specialty Service Dog Trainer working with both the dogs and the members of our Military with PTSD.
I have had my own personal service dog for the past 11 years, and Nadador has participated in the“Seizure Alert Project” learning to detect the viability of seizure scent. I was an AKC CGC Evaluator for 12 years. My personal dogs have participated in Therapy Dog work for the past 14 years in retirement homes, hospice, universities and chemotherapy rooms. I am a KPA-CTP graduate and continue to attend many workshops and clinics to further my knowledge and skills.
