Who is the Puppy Professor?
Tagged by a happy client as "The Puppy Professor", Amy Saletta, KPA CTP began a successful dog training business over 10 years ago offering small group classes and private in-home sessions to new pet parents. Using science-based, positive reinforcement methods, she and her team of skilled trainers will show you how to help your puppy develop good manners (in and out of the home) while building a strong bond of trust and respect.
