The Training Team

The training team at Animal Behavior Training Concepts has more than 50 years of combined experience in fun, effective, humane training methods, applied across multiple species.

We are certified and/or professional members of some of the most respected training and animal-care organizations. 

We are lifelong learners. Continuing education is very important to us and we stay up to date by regularly attending seminars and conferences.

 And last but not least, we are pet owners who love our animals and want the best for them, just like you!
