The Play Way is Amy Cook’s method of helping shy and fearful dogs overcome these issues to live a happier, less-stressed life. Rather than focusing on food, as many do when working with these dogs, Amy has established a more nuanced rehabilitation process that revolves around personal, social play. She believes play is a much more reliable method of judging a dog’s true behavioral thresholds, while being equally effective at supporting a dog to make emotional change. Play is both an indicator of stress and an intervention for stress! Amy is a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant through the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC), a longstanding professional member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT) and was one of the first trainers nationally to become a Certified Professional Dog Trainer through independent evaluation. Amy returned to school in 2006 to get her Ph.D. in Psychology from UC Berkeley. Her research focused on the dog-human relationship and its effect on the problem-solving strategies dogs employ.
