"I was a military police officer with the Kentucky Army National Guard from 2000 to 2012. During that time, I went on three deployments to Cuba, Afghanistan, and Iraq. I learned, quite well, what good leadership can do for people and it is no different for dogs. I was like most dog lovers, always had dogs in my life and often used "old school' methods for "training" them, like swatting them or rubbing their nose in a potty accident. I even trained my deaf Boxer with hand signals. Then, a few years ago, I got an unusually anxious Boxer who did not respond well to any of those aggressive methods. I went looking for help. What I found was Jo-Thor's Dog Trainers' Academy and the Leadership Method. As a student, I was hungry for knowledge and excelled in my studies. Now, I am an Instructor for the academy and get to share my knowledge with other Veterans in the Jo-Thor program while serving my local community as well."
