Pam Yano CPDT-KA 


As far back as I can remember I was surrounded by animals that I was always training – birds, burros, cats, cows, ponies, dogs, raccoons, and the list goes on. My love for animals has only increased through the years.

I have worked with so many skilled and talented dog trainers. It has been fascinating to see how dog training has evolved so much over the years and it continues to evolve at a rapid pace. I love science and fact based learning so you will often find me enthralled in a book or listening to a speaker on dog behavior or training.

I love working with families and their dogs, helping them learn different ways to communicate with their dog in a fun stress-free environment.
