Allison has been working in the animal training field using positive reinforcement since 2008. She has worked with and trained a variety of species at different institutions and organizations including Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Pueblo Zoo, Lincoln Park Zoo, Shedd Aquarium and Canine Companions for Independence. Allison has a passion for all animals, but she really became interested in dog behavior and training after adopting her second dog, Delilah. Delilah was a stray in Colorado and had been returned to the Humane Society three times by the time Allison and her husband Ryan found her. Delilah suffers from separation anxiety, she’s highly reactive on walks and she always has tons of energy. Delilah has inspired Allison to learn more about dog behavior and training, and she has challenged Allison to become a better trainer.
