Paula Macrides - Paula One
Paula Macrides is a 1987 graduate of SUNY Delhi with an AAS in Veterinary Science. She also has a BS in Biology, and MA in Health Service Administration. She is currently a stay at home mom to two young children and two senior dog kids. Paula has taught the Puppy Socialization and Family Companion classes, starting in 1999. For the past 5 years, Paula has been teaching a Therapy Dog Prep Class, for those interested in doing therapy work with their canine companion.
A former licensed Delta Society Evaluator, Paula has combined her love for the elderly and children with her passion for dog therapy as a registered Pet Partner with her retired dog Marlie. Together they have brightened the lives of residents in nursing homes for over 10 years. Furthermore, as a R.E.A.D. (Reading Education Assistance Dog) team, they have helped kids overcome their fear of reading out loud by reading to Marlie at libraries and elementary schools.
Additionally, Paula is instructing a new and unique class for senior dogs, The Senior Companion Class. Paula has a passion for senior dogs and believes keeping their minds and body's active will enhance their quality of life. Her almost 13 year old dog graduated from a Family Companion class; who said you can't teach an old dog new tricks?
