In the early years, Peggy honed her skills by working with horses who had moderate to severe behavioral issues. She had three articles published in popular horse magazines which addressed how changes in training techniques could be valuable to horse behavior. She had the privilege of learning, first hand, from a horseman named Monte Foreman. Some of his concepts of working with a horses natural movements to train specific behaviors in horses was revolutionary at the time. Now many horsemen have developed similar techniques which is incorporated in what is now called "Natural Horsemanship."
Peggy vastly reduced her work with animals for several years while raising a family. Then about twenty years ago, she once again ventured into the business by working with problematic dogs. Having gleaned valuable knowledge from Monte Foremans discoveries, Peggy began to study different training techniques elements that made those techniques effective or ineffective. She continues those studies as well as continues consulting to resolve problematic behaviors in dogs.
