Cecilia Anastos has over 25 years of experience training dogs without force and without painful methods. Cecilia's father was her first mentor. At the age of 16 years old, she started working with German Shepherd Dogs in the obedience discipline. From the start, she focused on developing a leadership relationship with the dog in order to have a trusted companion that will follow cues at all times not out of fear but out of respect and love for its handler.
Her methods of raising puppies are unique and produce well-behave and loyal companions.
Cecilia is also an Equine Massage Therapist and Cavaletti Trainer. She has been working with horses since 1996. She broke ground with these techniques at the San Diego Polo Club.
Cecilia's upbringing as Zen Buddhist gives her ideal calmness and infinite patience in searching the best way to interact with the animals she treats and train; and her sense of humor and ever-positive attitude make her clients have a good time while training their dogs or watching their horses enjoy a massage session.
Cecilia is a well-vetted instructor at law enforcement agencies, and US Navy Special Operations Forces. You can see her complete professional background in LinkedIn
