We get to the core of what makes every animal tick. (Including humans)
Julie Bond earned a Bachelor's Degree in Biological Psychology and a Master's Degree in Animal Behavior from the University of California at Davis. She then started her career as an animal health technician and practice manager for a Veterinarian in southern California. From there, she became a Wild Animal Trainer at the world-famous San Diego Wild Animal Park.
In 1991, she founded Pet Education and Training Services because “I saw a need for an animal care professional who focuses on the minds of pets.”
Julie's experience with veterinarians allows her to see how someone who specializes in the treatment of pet behavior issues can provide much-needed relief to veterinarians and their clients.
Her dissertations on a variety of behavior topics can be found in well-respected research journals, a number of online publications and in monthly columns for several San Francisco Bay newspapers.
Julie’s also a member of the National Honor Society in Psychology, The Golden Key National Honor Society, Sigma Xi, the NAAB (National Association of Animal Behaviorists) and the Association of Pet Dog Trainers.
And in her spare time...
Julie is the Staff Behaviorist for Furry Friends Pet Assisted Therapy Services, a group which has been providing pet-assisted therapy to people all over the South San Francisco Bay Area for more than 20 years.
You can find Julie at her talks and events at the Bay Area Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club (BACKCSC).
She also helps out at the club’s Rescue Trust www.cavalierrescuetrust.org by evaluating rescued dogs, temperament-testing them and advising the group on training and placement.
And if you’ve ever heard of BASH (Bay Area Siberian Husky Rescue) or San Francisco Samoyed Rescue, you’ve heard of Julie’s consulting services.
At P.E.T.S., we believe in bringing our work home with us.
Julie and her partner, Dave, are parents to three humans and their two Rough Coat Collies, Desi and Ozzie. You can visit their collies on their Facebook Page:
