Five Things You Should Never Do to a Puppy.

Judy is also the Head Trainer for the Portland Maine Chapter, Pets for Vets Program. Judy specializes in individual private behavior modification sessions and teaches reward based training classes in Falmouth Maine. She is recommended by more than 25 veterinarians, and has volunteered countless hours to many rescue groups in the area.  She has been training dogs professionally for over 8 years and can be found listed as a Professional member of the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants, the Society for the Promotion of Applied Research in Canine Science as well as the Association of Pet Dog Trainers.

JMooreI am truly fortunate that I discovered a career, as a Certified Dog Trainer, using positive reinforcement techniques, which reduces stress on your dog while training them. I have learned over the years that I am able to relate well with both people and animals, and it has become my mission to share that skill in bettering the lives of both.

My animal-loving and training background began as a child growing up on a small Quarter Horse Farm in Cincinnati, Ohio. As the seventh child of eight my beloved parents, Martha and Fran Rapp demonstrated unconditional love for unwanted pets. I was surrounded and cared for by all sorts of animals. But, growing up on a horse farm meant the primary work was in caring for the horses. I not only cared for registered Quarter Horses, I trained them using Natural Horsemanship methods and competed at the highest levels in AQHA shows and competitions throughout the country for over 20 years. Of course, dogs were always at my side and I volunteered time supporting my mother’s efforts at the local Animal Shelter, where she was President. The “problem” dogs that were otherwise hard to find homes for found their way to our house. That’s how I recognized my gift for training dogs, developed my understanding of their behavior, and reapplied the approach of positive reinforcement I utilized effectively raising and training horses.

Judy Moore 1Understanding and relating well to animals is only half the equation! I also work well with people, and have made a “second” career as a school teacher, State D licensed soccer coach, and mom to my three children — who are also growing up too fast, but fortunately have the same love of animals that I do!

Canine Behavior Counseling is now my full-time “passion” outside of my home life. Not only do I train problem dogs and work with their owners to find that “joyful balance” in the relationship between the two, I also volunteer support to the Animal Refuge League, foster neglected and/or abused dogs, and volunteer the services of “Annie”, a dog I adopted and trained as a registered Therapy dog, at a local retirement home. I still train horses — but only as a hobby!

I’m busy, and I absolutely love what I do! If you have a “problem” dog, or simply want to understand your dog’s needs and want to improve the relationship you have with your dog, contact me, as I welcome the opportunity to help. There is nothing that gives me greater joy!”

Lois’ Marketplace

Lois’ Natural Marketplace is a locally owned organic and natural products marketplace  in Scarborough, Maine. It offers an eco friendly and exciting natural foods shopping experience.

Opened in 1993, Lois’ Natural Marketplace is now  celebrating its 18th year of serving  Scarborough, as well as the greater Portland, Maine region.

The Marketplace enjoys a loyal following of local residents and summer visitors to the coast of Maine. Lois’ Marketplace has a national reputation with its customers and within the network of natural foods stores across the country. Lois’ is often first to bring new products to the public; several national brands of natural foods started out on the shelves of Lois’.

Lois’ Natural Marketplace offers hundreds of local and regional products, as well as other organic and top quality foods from around the world. Farm to market at Lois’ often means that the produce being delivered at the back door was picked that morning! Year round selection of seasonal and regional favorites from local Maine farms.

The owners are actively involved with the Marketplace. They bring over thirty years of passion for eating organically grown foods within a holistic diet. Their background in organic foods is rooted in the co-operative natural food movement of the 1970’s. They personally source many of the products in the store and recipes used in the award winning cafe-deli are family favorites.

Their mission for bringing organic foods to the local community has taken them to organic vineyards in Italy and Spain; the Costa Rican mountains to visit an organic ginger and turmeric farm as well as organic vineyards and farms back home in Maine. They have personally inspected facilities around the country for products that bear the Lois’ brand name.
