FORCE FREE OREGON
A F F I L I A T E
Woof Cultr is a small, woman-owned apparel business created in February 2019 by Mandy Boutelle CCT, CTBC. Mandy started out as a professional dog walker, turned certified trainer and after searching online for some t-shirts that helped represent her preference of force-free training methods, she realized there really wasn’t anything out there. So she came up with Woof Cultr, where her whole mission is to help spread the word of more humane training methods, through witty and high quality apparel. By creating shirts for trainers, behavior nerds, and anyone who loves working with their animals in a positive and humane way!

Interview with the team from Force Free Oregon
On this episode, I talk with Hayley Martinez, Schel Harris, and Lorena Wallace of Force Free Oregon. They talk with me about how they are spreading the word about a force-free approach in all animal services and what changes they would like to see the animal training industry. You can find more information about Force Free Oregon on their website and by following her on Instagram and Facebook. I hope you enjoy this episode with your furry best friend.
