Get to Know: Nebraska Humane Society

With Dawn Thrapp, Behavior Specialist and Project Pet Safe Coordinator

Please join us on Tuesday, November 20th for an opportunity to get to know the Nebraska

Humane Society! You will learn about:

  • The difference between Service Dogs, Emotional Support Dogs (Assistant Dogs) and Therapy Dogs
  • How the Federal Laws applies to these differences
  • Training requirements for each of these categories
  • Attempt to clear up some of the confusion surrounding these animals

About the Speaker

Dawn started training dogs in the late 1970’s. She has competed with her own dogs in obedience, agility, confirmation, and tracking; completing 30 titles in all. Dawn has taught obedience classes, both pet and competition, for some of Omaha’s local dog clubs for the last 35 years and approximately 20 years ago, she began specializing in providing private lessons for owners who have aggressive dogs. Two of Dawn’s dogs also were certified Therapy Dogs, with one of those dogs being the first Facility Dog at Douglas County Courthouse. In addition, she is proud to say she has made the front page of the Nebraska Supreme Court newsletter as she was that facility dog’s trainer and handler. The dog was available there to provide comfort to children who had to testify in Juvenile Court.

Dawn has continuously attended many advanced workshops and conferences with the privilege to learn from some of the best Ethologists and Behaviorists in the world and apply what she has learned from them.

At Nebraska Humane Society, Dawn currently works with owners of dogs that have been deemed potentially dangerous to educate and helps them with the dogs’ behavior issues. She also provides other private lessons and conducts the breed evaluations for dogs listed on the local ordinance (such as pit bulls). Finally, Dawn is the Coordinator for Project Pet Safe, the Nebraska Humane Society’s program that helps victims of domestic violence who need safe housing for their pets while they transition.

HWN’s February Event with Sandra Dubas – Healthy Lifestyle Consultant

Sandra Dubas - Healthy LifestyleSandra Dubas is passionate about educating women about the importance of Self-Care, adopting a healthy lifestyle, and especially advocating for women to watch for the signs of Autoimmunity. Given that 78% of the 55 million Americans diagnosed with Autoimmune diseases are women, I believe this is a topic worth exploring. Additionally, it takes an average of 5 years and at least 5 physicians for a woman to get a proper diagnosis. This epidemic encompasses diseases such as MS, Lupus, Thyroidism, Celiac, Crohns, Psoriasis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and multiple others.

Topics Include:

  • What is Autoimmunity
  • What are the Symptoms and are you at risk?
  • Causes of Autoimmunity
  • Why are Women Affected More than Men
  • And More!

She has extensive international ethics experience, including: Dominican Republic, where she was as an instructor in the Creighton University Study Abroad Program for three years; France, where she met with L’Oreal executives to learn about ethics and compliance in their firm; Japan, where she learned about ethics and compliance at Prudential Financial; and, Ethiopia, where she spoke at a university about business ethics as a competitive advantage and also met with the female owner of the largest travel agency in the country to discuss cultural similarities and differences in business ethics.
