"I had the privilege of working with Cari for over a decade and her passion and dedication for helping animals is unparalleled. She is a skilled and self-motivated person as evidenced by her Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner certification and many other educational pursuits. She has a constant drive to always be learning and using her knowledge of proven scientific methods to enhance the relationship between animals and their people. She was a pioneer of sorts at our organization when she first introduced the concepts of positive training several years ago and it has been life-changing for the animals we serve. Her methods put the animal’s unique needs at the forefront and shows how animals learn best when they are feeling comfortable and secure. The knowledge she’s imparted on staff, adopters, and community members has helped countless animals and their families live happier, healthier lives together."
