Sue (Smith) Pezzanite, KPA CTP, CPDT-KA
Sue Smith graduated in December 2008 from the Karen Pryor Academy for Animal Training and Behavior, and is a certified training partner. This program is an intense education that demonstrates a high level of skill in training dogs, as well as teaching dog owners in a force free training technique. One requirement of the program was to train a dog and also train another species – her cat was trained!
She started volunteering as a dog walker at the Erie County SPCA in 2005, which led to her passion for dog training, and currently is part of the enrichment team for dogs at the shelter. Sue became an assistant instructor with The Family Companion in 2006 and became a class instructor in 2009. She has a passion for learning and attends various training seminars. Sue is a member of APDT and received her CPDT-KA in 2010.
