Elizabeth Stanley-Reicherter CPDT-KA, ABCDT – AWA Behavior Coordinator

Liz is a certified professional dog trainer (CPDT-KA) with a degree in Anthropology from New York University.  She specializes in finding solutions for behavioral challenged dogs and cats.  Liz designs and implements effective behavior modification plans to achieve behaviorally health animals within the shelter environment.  Ensuring the animals at AWA stay mentally and physically healthy is critical to AWA’s work.  To this Liz also teaches community workshops and public dog training classes.

The topics covered in AWA’s community workshops are diverse:  Listening to Your Dog for Girl Scout to Zoom sessions at Medford Leas about Clicker Training Cats to Proper Leash Walking and At Home Enrichment Toys 101 for the public.  The love of teaching others has helped Liz in her designing AWA’s staff and volunteer training program as well as in developing a future dog trainer mentoring program for college students.

Before joining AWA in 2015 Liz was an independent dog trainer focusing on problem behavior solving at the Dog Lady Dog Training.  She also volunteered and assisted with behavior modification at an open-admission high volume animal shelter on Long Island, NY.  With a strong focus on behavior and behavior modification she was able to increase the number of animal lives saved and lower animal relinquishments to that animal shelter.

Liz is currently studying and passing examinations for her behavior consulting certification.  Liz loves learning.  Her goal is to eventually secure the title of “Behaviorist,” a title reserved for only a few hundred trainers in the US.

When away from AWA Liz enjoys time on her farm with her son, husband and a house and barn yard of animals.
