Sarah Riley - Office Manager, Assistant Trainer

Heather has been a professional dog trainer and instructor for eleven years. She has earned her CPDT -KA (Certified Professional Dog Trainer - Knowledge Assessed), is a professional member of the APDT, a full member of the Pet Professional Guild, and a certified CGC evaluator. Positive, force free, relationship building training is very important to her. She is passionate about clicker training and has attended Clicker Expo for the past 5 years.

She has been doing animal rescue since 2000. She also has extensive experience with species beyond dogs. She trains regularly with her horse, and has worked with everything from lions and tigers to Patagonian cavies, a porcupine, a coatimundi, small exotics, and has even trained chickens. She recently ran a "chicken camp" for her interested students. She prefers to consider herself an animal trainer, rather than simply a dog trainer, and enjoys thinking outside the box.
