Dog Trainer & Veterinary Assistant ABC Double Graduate Showcased in Local Paper

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

ABC Graduate, Shelly Tarr, is the stable manager for these horses

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!

Cat Info Cat-stravaganza!

With the right training and knowledge, animal professionals can do amazing and practical things with cats. Click here for tips on giving your cat a bath without getting shredded. After a bath, your Furry Friend will need grooming attention so click here for tips on brushing your cat safely and effectively. Finally, to keep everyone involved happy, comfortable and healthy, check out our tips on keeping nature’s ongoing flea circus out of your home.

Steve Appelbaum, the president of Animal Behavior College, was recently interviewed by ABC graduate Nan Talleno on her podcast, “Teacher’s Pet” on Pet Life Radio. The topic of the interview centered around the trainability of cats. Feline behavior issues often result from owners simply not understanding what their cats are trying to tell them. Effective training not only helps lower the incidents of cats being abandoned to shelters in the first place, it also greatly reduces the statistics of them being returned due to “failed” adoptions. Steve discusses why cats are the way they are and how humans can work within the feline psychological structure  to accomplish amazing things.

To promote the cause of cats everywhere, we at ABC have created a “Cat Management & Training” Continuing Education Program.  The goal of this course is to provide students the background,  context and tools necessary to motivate and ultimately train cats (yes, they are trainable!), as well as to provide a forum where cats can be introduced to more appropriate and positive behaviors.

We’re proud that our vet assisting and grooming students are all about cats. Our dog training grads looking to expand their professional repertoires are all about cats. And ABC’s staff and management are all about cats! Know that Animal Behavior College can keep you current on cat care, health and “management” for the duration of your professional education. Our school supports all beings of the feline persuasion!

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.
