May 20, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


This event has been postponed.

Registration is still open. Please register below to receive updated details as they become available.

Dog Harmony is hosting Amanda Rietheimer in a complimentary, virtual Q&A focused on shelter enrichment, expectations and equipment. Rietheimer is a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant (CDBC) and a Certified Professional Dog Trainer-Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA). She is a lifelong animal advocate and former animal control officer in New England.


Our second live Q & A session called “Ask Amanda: Shelter Enrichment, Expectations & Equipment,” will be particularly beneficial for employees and volunteers of animal rescue organizations. Prizes will be awarded for best questions submitted during the live Q & A. There is no fee to attend this seminar, although donations to support Dog-Harmony’s humane education programs are welcome.


Rietheimer owns and manages Behavior Focus of Houston, LLC, which focuses on modifying fearful and aggressive behavior of animals in the Houston, TX area. She has partnered with Dr. Lore Haug, the only Veterinarian Behaviorist in the Houston area, on many cases. Rietheimer has also donated many hours to various rescue organizations to help assess dogs and create behavior modification plans for newly adopted and/or fostered dogs.


Prior to founding Behavior Focus of Houston in 2012, Rietheimer was an Animal Control Officer for 12 years in the New England area. For three of those years, she oversaw the animal shelter and staff. Rietheimer shadowed many local trainers to help train dogs at the shelter in order to increase their chances of being adopted. Later, she became a police officer and was training to become a K-9 handler when she realized that she missed helping animals at the shelter.
