Certified professional dog trainer Mikkel Becker will write blog posts for earthbath's website. Becker will also make an appearance at earthbath's booth (3720) at Global Pet Expo, which will be held March 12-14 in Orlando, Fla.
“We are really excited to have Mikkel working with us,” says Paul Armstrong, president of earthbath. “She is really a multi-talented individual whom we believe will be invaluable to our retailers, professional groomers, and end customers when it comes to educating them on proper pet bathing, dental hygiene, skin and ear issues, as well as other everyday situations that come up between pets and the people that love them.”
Becker has trained exotic animals, specializing in primate care and training with a focus on orangutans at Jungle Island, Miami. As a professional dog trainer, she works with pets on everything from basic manners to deeper-rooted problems like aggression and fear. Becker also works on training and behavior issues in cats.
Becker is a regular contributor to various publications including Parade Magazine, Woman's Day, House and Home, Dog Fancy and Cat Fancy. She has also co-authored six pet books.
“I have two Pugs, and I have used earthbath products on them since they were puppies," Becker said. “earthbath has a philosophy that is much like mine—protect pets and the environment and I am looking forward to a long and meaningful relationship with the company.”
