Episode 29. How Billie Groom of UPWARD Dogology is Helping Dogs with a "Checkered Past"
While Billie Groom didn’t grow up with pets, the dogs started finding her when she was in her 20s. Billie’s passion was ignited when she stumbled upon a dog hiding under a log on a beach and found her a loving home.
After traveling through the U.S. in a renovated bus and running an informal dog rescue in North Carolina, Billie returned to Canada and fell into starting a dog walking company.
While running her business, Billie found she had a knack for working with dogs with behavioral issues and found herself helping pet parents improve their dog’s problematic adolescent behavior and assisting dogs with a “checkered past.”
Billie’s UPWARD Dogology has helped hundreds of families who are often in a crisis due to their dog’s behavior. Billie’s methodology differs from traditional training methods and is based on the principles of cognitive behavior therapy.
