Animal Behavior College Graduate, Shelly Tarr, Shares Her Story in the Local Newspaper
We love to hear when our graduates are featured in the news. Shelly Tarr, a resident of Knightstown Indiana, is a double program graduate and she received certification in Animal Behavior College’s Dog Obedience program and the Veterinary Assistant program. Shelly’s husband is an active military member and through the Military Spouse Career Advancement Program (MyCAA), she qualified for free tuition. Shelly’s husband did not have to relocate during her studies. If the family had moved, since ABC offers home learning combined with a hands-on externship program, Shelly could have received her instruction anywhere in the United States, and she would have been able to continue her courses seamlessly.
Even Students with the Busiest of Schedules Can Achieve An ABC Certification
Like many ABC students, Shelly was challenged with time constraints throughout her course. She held down a job and raised her children, and it was the program’s flexibility that made it manageable.
Shelly is now working with animals as the stable manager for the Indiana Ceremonial Unit Caisson Platoon (pictured on the right). At the stables, she grooms, trains, walks, and cares for the platoon’s horses. She receives inquiries about dog behavioral challenges, and she is always happy to advise and council people about solutions to help curb unwanted behavior. She feels that she is actively taking a role in helping to prevent animals from being abandoned to the local animal shelters and she is very proud of that!
Congratulations Shelly Tarr!

Astonishing Video: Extreme Agility Training!
Some videos must be watched more than once!
With over 1.5 million views on YouTube, TreT (the American Straffordshire Terrier shown) is trained in parkour and has become a worldwide canine celebrity. This video compels you to watch over and over in wonder.
By way of background, the American Straffordshire Terrier is sometimes referred to as the “cousin” of the American Pit Bull. These dogs can be great pets when properly socialized. Eager to please and especially responsive to those who understand their innate need for a strong pack leader, the Straffordshire requires time, exercise and discipline for best results. Possessing those traits, however, may allow dedicated Staffy owners to glean some of the remarkable results seen in this video!
If you have an active lifestyle and understand the needs of these dogs, they make loyal and loving family pets.

Animal Behavior College
Makes The Front Page For A Local Arizona Newspaper
At ABC, we are focused on animal safety and care. Our school is owned, operated, and staffed by animal lovers who have a STRONG passion for all animals. With summer upon us an important issue for pet owners to be aware of is that there are over 5,000 pets that drown in pools every year, often because they are not trained to find the pool steps. ABC does what it can to get the word out and give the pet owning community safety tips around pools. We are always happy to read that others join our cause on pool awareness.
Recently, the Arizona newspaper, Ahwatukee Foothills News featured an article by Diana Martinez about Lisa Maldonado, who is an ABC dog training graduate and mentor trainer. Lisa teaches Canine Pool Safety and Exercise Training to help save animals lives in Arizona. In the same issue, reporter Travis Roemhild, wrote a front page cover story article about our certified dog training program at Animal Behavior College.
This is possibly the most adorable — and purposeful — litter of puppies on the Internet!
