The Pet Professional Guild has appointed Ossining resident Paula Garber as chairwoman of its Cat Committee. Garber is the owner of LIFELINE Cat Behavior Solutions in Briarcliff Manor.

She’s a certified animal training and enrichment professional and certified feline training and behavior specialist through the Animal Behavior Institute. Garber holds a master’s degree in education from the University of Colorado at Boulder and also serves as an advisor to the board of FurBridge, a nonprofit animal rescue and community outreach program in Ardsley.

The Pet Professional Guild is a nonprofit based in Wesley Chapel, Florida. Its 4,000 members include pet industry professionals around the world who are committed to force-free training and pet care philosophies, practices, and methods. Force-free means no shock, pain, choking, fear, physical force, or compulsion-based methods are used when training or caring for a pet.

“I’m honored to have been appointed as chairwoman of the Pet Professional Guild’s Cat Committee,” said Garber. “The aim of our eight-person committee is to educate people on using science-based, force-free training and handling methods with cats in their care. Permanent physical and psychological harm results from methods involving pain, fear, force, and intimidation.”

Garber’s business provides private, in-home cat training and behavior consulting services.
