Phil Webb

Born in Boston, I now live inArlington Heights, IL.  I raised and trained animals all my life. Currently I live with Blue, my second deaf Great Dane. Blue and I belong to Alliance of Therapy Dogs. We volunteer at various schools, homes for the aged, Great Lakes Naval Training Center. My history includes 1000’s of hours of training dogs, 500 hours in Animal Assisted Therapy in the hospital environment and countless hours of behavior training and pro-bono work. I volunteered, apprenticed, and consulted with dog rescues, and the best Chicagoland trainers.  I work with Blue at schools, daycare, and visit children with learning disabilities.
