Billie Groom, award winning author, member of the Dog Writers Association of America, Animal Behavior Society and the Comparative Cognition Society, and a graduate of the University of Western Ontario (B.A.). I developed the UPWARD Dogology formula from working with thousands of dogs over 3 decades. My clients include veterinarians, psychologists, animal experts, canine professionals, rescuers, fosters, adopters and first-time dog peeps. The Humane Society of Toronto awarded me for my work with challenging dogs in 2002 and I continued to develop my methodology over the decades through hands-on application.
I am the expert in Canine Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I work exclusively with dogs over the age of six months because this is when cognitive skills develop causing change in behaviors. This is an unheard-of area of expertise because there is no other formula grounded in C.B.T. that effectively addresses behaviors associated with aggression, anxiety, rescued dogs, adolescent dogs and change in behaviors.
