Think of THE DOG ZONE as Oprah for dogs – absolutely everything you ever wanted to know about raising a happy and healthy dog, including nutrition, breed history, and medical information. That’s not to say it’s all serious. We also look at the sometimes strange, sometimes goofy human-dog world. Oh, did we mention dog fashion? Dog sports? Dog bedrooms? You’re in the Dog Zone now!
The Dog Zone with Cindy Scott
Cindy Scott has been a trainer & behavior consultant for over 15 years. Her life’s work is to educate owners about their pets. A lifelong love and admiration of animals took a serious turn when in 1989 her beloved dog was hit and killed by a car. The loss sent her on a mission to ﬁnd the most effective training to prevent such tragedy and then to spread the word.
Cindy obtained her B.A. from CSUF and went on to work at Cat Fancy, Dogs USA and Cats USA publications. But she missed working with animals directly. After apprenticing with a behaviorist she began her new career and never looked back.
After the birth of her second son in 1997, she started Dogs Etc. Her human children have given her the unique perspective of integrating the species to form a happy family. Cindy helps pets and owners bridge the communication gap. Using positive techniques that are as fun as they are effective, training is a joy, not a chore. The result is a happy, healthier pet that is truly a member of the family.
At Dogs Etc. only positive techniques based on scientiﬁc learning theory are used. Our mission is to help give each dog the best quality of life possible: each dog is a cherished and valued family member.
We don’t “whisper” to dogs — we teach them in the most efficient and
effective way possible. No supernatural powers are needed, just a basic understanding of how your dog thinks and learns.
