With over 35 years of professional experience, Gail's background in dogs covers virtually all aspects of the field. A pioneer in many aspects of dog training, education and behavior, Gail developed the first University program for dog trainers and instructors in the world, a two-year certificate course, which she taught at the University of New Hampshire. Through her All Dogs Academy, she has continuously provided education and training for instructors and trainers for nearly 30 years.

Bucking the 6-month old "diktat" for starting dogs in training, Gail pioneered puppy classes for puppies as young as eight weeks in 1976. In 1993 she founded and built All Dogs Gym, pioneering the field of multi-dog interactive daycare. All Dogs Gym is the largest dog activity center in the Northeast and one of the largest all-clicker-training programs in the country.

Gail's commitment to learning and sharing knowledge benefits dog owners, professionals and the dogs themselves. Her latest book, The Thinking Dog-Crossover to Clicker Training (nominated for a DWAA Award in 2009) is the quintessential manual for dog trainers interested in clicker training. She is also the author of two award-winning books, training manuals, countless articles in major dog publications, and a weekly newspaper column. Gail's programs and seminars have earned her acclaim as an international presenter.
