Dog Trainers at C.A.R.E. Receive CPDT-KA Certifications!
Three, local C.A.R.E. employees who work full time with the dogs have earned certification through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT-KA). Tracey Yajko, Eric Welker and Ashley O’Brien now join over 3000 certificants worldwide. Candidates who pass the exam earn the title Certified Professional Dog Trainer- Knowledge Assessed and may use the designation “CPDT-KA” after their names. All certified trainers must earn continuing education credits to maintain their designations or take the examination again in three years. When asked how the experience reflected on C.A.R.E., Tracey replied “This is an awesome stepping stone for our dog team. We strive to provide the best care and training with our dogs both while they are at the shelter and through their transition to a home. Now we are official!”
C.A.R.E. continues to offer reasonably priced training classes to the public. These classes help dogs become more enjoyable and better behaved companions. Dogs need lots of chances to practice positive interactions with other dogs in a safe, supervised environment. Classes also encourage the training essentials, including sit, down, stay, come, and loose-leash walking, among other important topics. One on one consultations are also available with Tracey, Eric and Ashley by appointment.
