Heather Adams, KPA CTP, CBATI
I enjoy life with my 3 dogs. We love to hike, camp, canoe, and compete in agility and sheep herding. Check out the slide show below to see some of our adventures.
I graduated from the Karen Pryor Academy for Animal Training and Behavior in 2008, ready to take on the world of obedience and agility classes, but I soon discovered there were lots of dogs with behavior problems preventing them from coming to a training class. So I learned everything I could on helping dogs with over excitement, fear, anxiety, aggression, and socialization issues. That led me to Behavior Adjustment Training. I suddenly saw progress with my clients like I never saw before. That inspired me to go through the rigorous program to become a Certified Behavior Adjustment Training Instructor (CBATI).
I believe it's important to be a great dog trainer, but it's just as important to be a great teacher. After all, my job is to teach you how to train your dog. I'm a graduate of the Teacher Certification Program at the University at Buffalo and have practical experience teaching biology and science to all age groups, in addition to over 9 years teaching people how to train and rehabilitate their dogs.
I am proud to be a KPA graduate and I continue my relationship as a Certified Training Partner in order to maintain a constant level of professional education.
My mission is to bring my passion for dog training and teaching people together, to help you bring out the best in your dog.
