Amy is a Karen Pryor Academy graduate and Certified Training Partner. Her journey with clicker training began while working at a wildlife hospital at just 12 years of age. She began clicker training a wood duck named Willow, along with pelicans, cormorants, woodpeckers and even a ground squirrel in the hospitals educational program. After graduating from college with a BA in biophysical geography, she found her way back to her passion of animal behavior. This time it was the domestic sort. She began working at a high volume dog kennel and daycare. Amy quickly realized through observing the interactions of dogs in that setting, that she wanted to provide a more tailored dog care option with quality in mind. This lead her to briefly offering dog walking services, which segued into boarding along with teaching group training classes at Marin Humane. Amy works on expanding her knowledge and growing as a trainer as the the field evolves through studying written material, attending classes, workshops, seminars and collaborating with other trainers.
Training is simply never "done".
Clicker training is much more than just "treat training". It is based on the scientific principles of learning theory. We use positive reinforcement to build behaviors which we can use to our advantage and to create a clear avenue of communication between human and dog.
We seek out dogs to enrich our lives and to provide them with a safe and happy life in return. Training does not always mean serious grueling work, nor should it feel that way. We believe training can and should be fun. We can help you achieve the skills to make life with your dog fluent and enjoyable. Take a breath and relax, it's just dog training!
While we are committed to helping people connect with their dogs, there is more to it than just basic obedience and socialization. We can cover a diverse variety of skills including enrichment, play, body handling, fitness and conditioning, sport foundations, trail manners, tricks and more. The possibilities are endless, so let's get started!
All species benefit from clear communication through training. Amy has worked with numerous non-canine species and continues to flex her creativity in clicker training all of the animals big and small.
