Welcome to Animals' Smile
Jessica O'Donoghue and Animals' Smile have been working with animals, from horses to hedgehogs, for the past 29 years which has been an educational journey. My career working with animals began in 1983 with the addition to the family of my first Old English Mastiff (Mastiff) and has expanded to a wide variety of facilities and families throughout New England, New Mexico and Colorado. For a lot of people, their pet is the most important relationship in their life and I respect and honor that relationship. Thank you for welcoming me into your lives and entrusting me to work with your beloved animals.
Sharing your life with an animal is more than just proper manners. It is a multi-layered relationship that involves behavior, the influence of health, environmental factors, and the human element on that behavior.
Dog training, thankfully, has become a more humane way of teaching that encourages the animal, rather than breaking them down through punishment and fear. Dogs do not teach each other that way, nor should we.
