Profile: I am an Animal Behavior College Certified dog trainer. I have worked in the animal industry for years, working at Petsmart for 2 years out of High School.
I started the ABC program in 2013,when my husband was stationed at Fort Benning for the military.
I had a lot of free time and have always really enjoyed interactions with mine and other dogs. My dog, Liberty has provided a lot of comfort for me through 3 deployments, and she is my inspiration to specialize in CGC (Canine Good Citizen) training.
I'd like to have both she and my shepherd puppy, Kane, registered therapy dogs so we can visit hospitals and nursing homes to spread the joy they give to me and my friends and family.
I eventually would like to be a trainer in my area who can spread awareness for therapy dogs and help train other people's dogs to be evaluated by PetPartners and help share the comfort and relaxation dogs bring to us.
I have a very good knowledge of dog behavior thanks to ABC and can't wait to spread the knowledge with others and help shape dogs into contributing, sweet, members of society!
Profile: I have always had an affinity for animals of all kinds, hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology, and have worked as a Veterinary Technician, but that was not enough. Then I found ABC, and they gave me the knowledge and skill I needed to become a Certified Dog Trainer. The program is very informative, the screening process so thorough, and reflects their deep commitment for the animals they serve.
I offer private in-home lessons in Basic Obedience, Puppy Manners, and Problem Solving (to include Aggression issues) using the Positive Reinforcement Techniques of Clicker Training.
As a kindred spirit to the dog world, I have become a Certified Dog Trainer through ABC. My training methods are gentle and positive, yet help you build the kind of relationship between you and your dog that will make you companions for life! I also offer Reiki to help balance and heal the many issues that plague the canine world.

I love to focus on behavior problems and the proper socialization of puppies so they have a great start in life and can be part of the family.
I do a lot of training with rescue dogs and most of the problems I come across are due to the dog's original owner not being educated. So, I love to meet with the families first without the dogs so we can discuss what their goals are and what they want out of their training with me.

*Where No Dog Is Left Behind*
I've been saving animals ever since I was little. I was one of those kids who would always come home and say "daddy can I keep him?"
While most of the time the answer was no the answer you can't save them all always came with the response.
Now while this is true, I'm getting a big head start on making a difference. I love animals big and small and would love to help those who need it with training, problem solving, aggression, pet sitting, and much more.
Let me know if there is anything I can do for you.

Linda Moyado, ABCDT ABC Certified Dog Trainer
Portage, Indiana 46368
Profile: I am a graduate of Animal Behavior College (ABC) and I wholeheartedly believe in using positive reinforcement as a means of training one's dog. The knowledge I have gained from ABC is more than I could have imagined, especially in regards to positive reinforcement techniques. Whether you are teaching a puppy what good behavior is or you are helping a dog to correct unacceptable behavior, positively reinforcing a behavior is the most important element. The end result is a happy and stable relationship between a dog and his family.

Sarah Witte, ABCDT ABC Certified Dog Trainer
Fort Wayne, Indiana 46805
Profile: I have always loved pets. I found when I was just 12 years old how wonderful dogs can be. My hobby led me to have a fond interest in the working group (aka Siberian huskies) because I condition them in the fall and spring and go for sled rides in the winter.
When a pet is properly trained, it becomes apparent that they truly are "man's best friend" and a bond of love and trust is formed between owner and pet that will last a lifetime.
