Rebecca Brame has been working with dogs for as long as she can remember, first apprenticing with a trainer at age eleven. The urge to understand the canine mind and be able to communicate with dogs has led to a lifetime of reading and researching animal behavior, working with and being inspired by dogs.

Rebecca became a certified training partner at Karen Pryor Academy of Animal Behavior in 2012, has been a Certified Professional Dog Trainer since 2016, and is a member of APTD. She has worked with many dogs and their families, emphasizing trust, respect and communication; and is committed to making learning safe, fun and stress-free.

She believes training is instrumental in strengthening the bond between an animal and their person. As an AKC Canine Good Citizen evaluator, Rebecca has worked training and evaluating dog and handler teams, and worked training teams and teaching children about dogs with Nellies Schoolhouse, a program that provides animal assisted therapy geared toward children with autism, depression and anxiety. Rebecca holds an AHH certification in the human/animal bond from the University of Denver.

In addition to her studies in animal behavior, Rebecca has a BFA from University of the Arts in Pennsylvania. This background in art has lead to keen observation skills and creative problem solving that has enhanced her work as a trainer. Rebecca lives with her two daughters; a sweet but nervous Rottweiler mix named Boom; a small in body, large in mind terrier mix named Pancho; cats Disco and Coyote; and a menagerie of guinea pigs, turtles and fish.
