MY CONNECTION TO ANIMALS
My name is Julie White and I am the Founder and Creator of Boston, MA based Puppy Talk Consulting and the Head Human Trainer! I started my animal career in 1993 when I became a professional dog groomer and spent nearly 10 years in the pet industry as both a groomer and a manager of a very high-end, holistic pet supply store. Spending most of my waking hours with dogs and deeply ensconced in the industry, I began to really understand them, from not only an educational perspective, but from both an instinctive and intuitive one. Whether it was a look on their face, a particular sound they would make or their unique and specific body language, I just knew what they needed, and conversely, what they didn't, and as a result of helping so many clients, was frequently referred to as "The Dog Whisperer™", and long before it was a brand.
I left the industry in 2001 but continued to groom many of my regular clients by traveling to their homes with my table and tools in tow. Along the way I added new ones, and sadly, my longest fur client crossed the Rainbow Bridge just this year at age 17. I started a Facebook Page called "Puppy Talk Consulting" in 2012, which currently has almost 50,000 followers, and in the same year published "Puppy Talk, An Owner's Manual, Educating One Human At a Time", an easy to read, understandable and applicable book which you can purchase here on my website.
