About Dee and Nori Morita

Dee Morita, Animal Behaviour College Certified Dog Trainer

My passion for dogs led me to professional certification in dog training at Animal Behaviour College (ABC). Through the ABC Externship Program, I met Georgina Bradley, founder of DogStars, who has been a tremendous influence on my career. I continuously update my knowledge by attending conferences, networking with other pet professionals and by reading as many books as I can get my hands on. For example, I participate in the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) Annual Conferences and Tradeshows and am certified in Emergency First Aid (Canine) from DOGSAFE Canine First Aid. I believe that the first step in training your dog is to understand its instincts and motivators. All dogs have different temperaments and genetic backgrounds. iPaw works with you to create eclectic strategies for your dog's success.
