About our trainers:
Pamela Wiltgen – Florida Trainer/Owner
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.
Retired Kennel Master, GAMSD Medical Service Dogs, working with diabetic alert dogs, seizure alert dogs, mobility dogs, and PTSD dogs. Recipient of 14 DOCNA National Agility Titles with both of my Pembroke Welsh Corgi’s. Both Corgi’s were also ATA Treiball competitors.
Private lessons on behavior problems have been my specialty during my tenor as a dog trainer. 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 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.

Harley – Pembroke Welsh Corgi has won 7 Nationals Titles and her second dog, Jo Dee – Pembroke Welsh Corgi has achieved 7 National Titles.
