HUMANE, EFFECTIVE DOG TRAINING & BEHAVIOR CONSULTATION
Torie Silletto, CTC, CPDT-KA
As a lifelong animal welfare advocate, I never have and never will use pain or fear to make a dog behave.
It has been proven by decades of scientific research that kindness and respect are essential to successful training.
I am an honors graduate of The Academy for Dog Trainers, where I earned my Certification in Training and Counseling (CTC). The Academy is an advanced two year course of study that is highly regarded as the "Harvard for dog trainers." I'm a Certified Professional Dog Trainer, Knowledge-Assessed and a full member of Pet Professional Guild.
As a staff member of the San Francisco SPCA Behavior & Training team, I worked extensively with shelter dogs in need of behavior modification. I also specialized in enrichment and welfare, puppy socialization, and taught ongoing classes for staff and volunteers. I further honed my skills at the East Bay SPCA where I taught public dog training classes.
No matter the problem, I am well equipped to provide solutions. My goal is for dog guardians to come away with:
A polite, well behaved dog
Confidence in their new skills
A strengthened bond through better understanding
I make training simple, enjoyable, and efficient. I am here to support you every step of the way.
