My name is Dorene Olson, and I am a local animal behavior consultant and animal trainer. I am a friend of Doug Miner; we met each other through a local chicken group that we both belong to.
I am a chicken keeper and backyard agriculture enthusiast and am eager to connect with others through Doug’s wonderful blogs. In my daily work I see many different and interesting cases that I look forward to sharing with you.
One of my recent behavior cases was an African Crested Porcupine, who lives with a miniature house pig, and I spent New Year’s Eve with my Canada goose management working Border Collie, Quill, at a friend’s house who just has adopted two house rabbits who hopped all around the house.
If you don’t know the House Rabbit Society, we have a local chapter of this national organization. It is well worth looking into http://www.hrsmostl.org/. Even if you don’t want to foster or adopt, there are many other ways of donating to rescue, and get to know a rescue bunny!
I’ll check in soon!
Editor: Dorene is happy to take any questions regarding animal behavior of any sort.
