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!

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.

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.

Our school started as the germ of an idea in the head of one man: Steve Appelbaum. Steve took his love of dogs, his ability to train them and a whole lot of gumption and turned them into Animal Behavior College, the largest animal career vocational school of its kind in North America.
The creation of ABC was full of twists and unexpected turns. You can read that story here. Fully realizing the love and concern that all pet owners have for their Furry Friends, Steve established his business on a specific set of training principles that he devised with business partner Debbie Kendrick. Read those training principles here. Below, see Steve give a lecture to ABC students about the in’s and out’s of creating their own pet businesses.
On Wednesday, July 25, Steve will be on live television in San Diego: KUSI/TV 51′s “Good Morning San Diego.” Steve is guesting in two segments: first, he’ll talk about tuition options for military spouses; next, he’ll discuss summer safety tips for your dog.
