Pamela Wiltgen – Florida Trainer/Owner 

Obedience Training

Far Fetched Tales Dog Training combines over 40 years of experience from working with animals on the farm to competition. Pamela professionally showed and trained horses. Now she has shifted her passion to the world of canines.

Private lessons on behavior problems have been my specialty over the past year. Every dog is unique, and every situation is different. We address many problems including: house soiling, jumping, excessive barking, fear, chewing, barking, crate training, separation anxiety, destructive behavior and dog to dog aggression of various breeds.

Pamela is also experienced in working with Autistic Children and dogs, as well as service dogs for PTSD, Diabetic Alert, and Seizure Alert. On a daily basis, these service dogs perform miracles for those less fortunate.

Studies on canine behavior and research are on going for Pamela. Studies and research include such professionals as Patricia Mc Connell, Suzanne Hetts, and Dr. Dan Estp of Denver, CO. All of whom are authors of several articles, books, and seminars on canine behavior problems causes, effects, and the resolution. Their techniques and studies all are in a positive reinforcement soft approach, which if you change the environment your approach changes. The position of the animal’s head, their eye shape, twitches of an ear, or body posture tells Pamela the story about your dog. Far Fetched Tales Dog Training is a Certified Mentor Training Facility by the Animal Behavior College.

Pamela’s first dog, a mixed breed was what is now known as an “All American” but in the day this dog was a “Heinz 57”. Other dogs in Pamela’s life included Brittany and Springer Spaniels which were used and trained for pheasant (bird) hunting. A Saint Bernard, affectionately named “Alphie”, was a great ranch dog on Pamela’s farm, herding the pigs, cows, and horses, plus a guardian dog for her two children.

Dog’s owned and trained by Pamela have been recognized by their accomplishments. Harley – Pembroke Welsh Corgi has won 4 Nationals Titles and her second dog, Jo Dee – Pembroke Welsh Corgi has achieved 3 National Titles. (DOCNA- Dogs on Course North America) Other agility venues shown include AKC and NADAC. Pamela has shown her dogs from Phoenix, AZ to Stephentown, NY. Pamela has also been featured as a guest dog trainer on the Pet Radio Show and on BlogTalkRadio’s Aqua Botanic and Pet Radio Show.

  • AKC – CGC Evaluator 
  • Service Dog Trainer – 2 years experience Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs 
Megan completed her bachelor’s degree in Recreational Therapy with a minor in Adapted Physical Activity and a second minor in Animal Assisted Interventions at Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania. Throughout her time at college she discovered how many different ways a dog could benefit those with disabilities. Her passion for helping others with disabilities and her love for dogs led her to complete an apprenticeship program at Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs where she learned how to train service dogs from birth to adulthood. Using positive reinforcement techniques she has trained basic obedience skills to dogs of several different breeds, as well as some mobility tasks. As a new AKC evaluator she is excited to help owners train their dogs to become an obedient, well behaved companion.

Megan’s Golden Retriever “Graham”  has received his AKC-STAR Puppy Award, AKC-CGC, AKC-Novice Trick Dog, AKC-Intermediate Trick Dog Titles.
