Amanda Ferris

RESCUE Dog TrainingAmanda Ferris, of R.E.S.C.U.E. Dog Training, is a protege of Carol Hein-Creger of the Canine Training Center and has been training with her for two years. Amanda fell in love with pit bulls not long after high school and spent the next 15 years learning all she could about dog body language and canine communication. Amanda's love of pit bulls has turned her into a bully breed advocate, and now she wants to showcase how many pit bulls are simply lovers of people, especially children. She adopted Luna, who was a fighting dog, two years ago and has turned into an absolute lover of people and lights up with excitement whenever she interacts with children. Amanda's mission is to help people with rescued dogs, even those with challenging pasts, learn how to rehabilitate their pets to live in a family home through positive reinforcement and patience. She says that there is no better feeling than the joy a family experiences when they begin to see the improvement in their dog's behavior and learn that their dog can live in harmony with their family.

Buddy's PALS (Pet Assisted Learning Service) teams go into Lansing area schools to help children in our educational system at all grade levels with reading. Children also develop positive relationships with animals and learn the critical skills needed to care for our companion animals: compassion, responsibility, respect, and kindness.  The Buddy's PALS prep class reinforces the basic skills required for the Buddy's PALS test, including sit, stay, down, leave-it, loose leash walking, along with more advanced skills to prepare for the school environment, including interacting with children and adults.  A beginner or basic skills class is recommended before taking this class.  Teams will also learn the skills to pass the Canine Good Citizen test.
