Mark Shambour: PDT,CGCE

Mark is a firm believer in positive behavior training. He trained with Stewart Kennels in 1978, where old fashioned methods were used with choke collars, etc. It is good to know both methods and prefer to use a more positve approach. He believes that good personal relation skills are important in communication with the pet handler so they can grow together as a team and build the bond that is necessary.
