Sue Frisch is a professional dog trainer with 25+ years of experience working with dogs and their owners. She is a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) and the National Association of Canine Scent Work (NACSW) and Tri-State Dog Obedience Club (TSDOC). After 25 years managing an animal shelter while also running a dog boarding business at her farm and teaching training classes at night, Sue’s expertise includes everything from basic manners training and behavior modification to dog psychology, nutrition, and exercise. Over the years she has worked with hundreds of families and their pet dogs. Sue knows that the science of canine behavior and training—and the resulting training techniques—is a field in constant development, and she makes sure to keep abreast of the latest discoveries. She regularly attends seminars with eminent behaviorists and dog trainers, and reads every significant book and publication on relevant topics. She is currently an American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen Evaluator, is in the instructors training course for K9 Nose Work and studying to become a C.L.A.S.S. evaluator for the APDT’s Canine Life and Social Skills program. Through her business, Your Dog’s Place, Sue helps dog owners train dogs of all sizes, ages, and temperaments to be polite four-legged family members—and she gives dogs a home away from home when they board at her farm, Countryside Kennels. Sue lives in Honesdale, PA, with her four dogs, Mackie, April, Mystery, and Monkey.
A monkey, found wearing a thick shearling coat and a diaper, was found roaming outside a Toronto Ikea store Sunday, The Globe and Mail reports.
Toronto Police Staff Sergeant Ed Dzingala described the animal as a "smart monkey" that was left in the car while its owners shopped. He said that the monkey was somehow able to escape its crate, open the car door and make its way to the customer pick-up area at a North York Ikea.
Ikea employees ushered the monkey into the store and called animal control while the owners were shopping inside the store. No harm came to the monkey, who was described as scared by the attention. The owners later came forward and were charged a $240 fine for having a prohibited animal and the monkey was taken into custody by animal services, according to a CTV News reporter.
News of the monkey quickly spread online after a customer posted a photo, and two joke accounts soon popped up: @IkeaMonkey and @Ikea_Monkey.
