About Debbie

Me And My Dogs

As a dog trainer, I am unusual.  I remember the owner’s name, before the dog’s.  That is the first clue to my dog training style.  I am interested in what is going on in the life of the whole family, not just the dog.  That is why my business is called “Me And My Dogs.”  The “Me” comes first.  The more I study and observe dog behavior, the more I become interested in human behavior.

For me, writing is an extension of my dog training business.  My essays tell stories that go beyond explaining behavior modification to changing the way people think about themselves and their dogs.  They are snapshots of my life with dogs that, hopefully, speak of something timeless and universal.  I suggest you read them slowly, as you open your heart and bare your soul; you may find the essays are not about me and my dogs, but, instead,  about you and your dogs.



  1. Hi Debbie 🙂 Thank you for stopping by my blog and for the follow! I hope you find some recipes that you will enjoy. Your post about the dog you found and then had to be put down was so very sad … but you cared enough to stop and help him, he had that … I would have done the same as I am a dog lover as well. I’m going to look around and read some more! Have a geat day! 🙂

    • Cher, Pasta (Macaroni as we Sicilians call it) is my favorite food. What made me want to follow you are your soup recipes. I don’t cook very often, but when I do, I only use one pot. Soups are about all I make. I will be making one of your soups the next time I get out a pot.

  2. As a ‘three dog owner’ I respect and relate to your philosophy. I look forward to reading more…and appreciate you stopping by my blog. Wishing you continued success in your training and writing!

  3. Thanks for liking my blog Debbie. I am a big dog person, and I look forward to reading more about what you’re learned about us humans after studying dogs. They are a wonderful species!

  4. Hi Debbie, thanks for stopping by and following my blog. I hope you enjoy it. I look forward to seeing your comments.

  5. Came here to leave my thanks for your recent decision to follow Learning from Dogs. Very much appreciated!

  6. Debbie, as having experienced your truly magical abilities in both dog-and-dog-owner whispering AND writing, I am excited to know you’re doing more writing! In that regard, “MORE IS BETTER!” 🙂
