For more than 10 years, Christine Palm Shaughness has worked as a pet behavior counselor, dog trainer and pet massage therapist.
Through her experiences and education, plus the countless hours spent volunteering and working for various animal shelters and rescue groups, she has gained a great deal of knowledge about pet and human behavior.
Chris is the author of Puppy Mill Dogs SPEAK!, the first and only book written by a pet professional to help adopters of puppy mill survivors. The book contains heartwarming stories and comprehensive advice to help the dogs adjust to life outside of the mill.
Chris also co-produced the documentary, Uncaged: Second Chances for Puppy Mill Breeder Dogs. Just released is a version for educators which includes an 8-page study guide.
On this site, you will also find a huge selection of behavior articles written by Chris, as well as the DVD Successful Dog Makeovers, which gives advice on common dog behavior problems.
Thank you for visiting and especially, thank you for caring about the animals.
