Senior Trainer & Founder of Shelby Semel Dog Training
A passionate dog lover since a young age, she decided to dedicate her life to working with animals upon graduating from the University of Michigan in 2007. She is a graduate of the Animal Behavior College (ABC) and went to be mentored by veteran dog trainer Kate Perry. She is Certified by the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers, and is a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT). She is constantly keeping up with the newest development in canine training and studies regarding dog psychology and behavior.
Her techniques are unique and flexible as no dogs are alike; each training session is tailored to suit each owner and dog. She currently resides in New York City with her Pomeranian Taz and Chihuahua Xena, who makes sure she’s up to par on her training skills!
Shelby is also a proud volunteer of Shelter Chic, Unleashed NY, and Animal Care Center of NYC.
