Monica Tidrick, Certified Master Trainer

Monica Tidrick was born and raised in Stamford, Connecticut, where she
grew up heavily involved in the animal world . She was a avid
volunteer with the local animal shelter helping to rehab and place
homeless dogs. Monica worked as a veterinary technician in Connecticut
and New Hampshire  for a total of 16 years.  That experience  taught
her  compassion for assisting animals in need and learning how to
medically care for them. This medical training has proved very
valuable in treating each behavioral case from all aspects of the
dog's life.

In 1995, Monica enrolled in a Master Trainer’s course at National K-9
in Columbus, Ohio and continued her goal in learning how to help
animals, not only in the medical field, but also by means of
communication  and behavior. Directly following her certification as a
Master Dog Trainer, she returned to Connecticut to begin training.
After a very successful first year, craving a more rural setting for
herself and her animals, Monica moved to New Hampshire and began her
new business, The Unconditional Canine.

Monica has been serving the New England area for  23 years, offering
her behavioral and training techniques to owners, in hopes of
developing healthier and happier relationships between them and their
trusted companions. Monica is known for her patient specialty work
with overly aggressive animals as well as other undesirable behavioral

Monica  has extensive experience with rescue animals and their
specific training and behavioral needs.

Monica’s family shares their home in rural  NH with six dogs, one cat,
a cockatoo,2 bearded dragons a bunch of spoiled rotten chickens.
