Meet Ilene Your Pawsitive Trainer
Ilene Nathan is a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant who has worked with dogs and their human companions for over ten years.  She first became interested in canine behavior issues when she brought home a beagle mix found on the streets of Baltimore.  Within a short amount of time, she found her dog was aggressive toward people and dogs.  That motivated her to start studying behavior to determine what methods were most successful to effect change.   

She has been certified by the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants as a dog behavior consultant since 2005 and has served on its Board of Directors. She is actively involved in Beagle and Doberman Pinscher rescue and served four years on the Anne Arundel County Animal Control Commission.  Interestingly enough, she also considers her work in evaluating interventions used in correctional programs in Maryland as an added plus in her understanding of behavior.
