Carly Shivers

Carly Shivers has been training dogs for over 10 years, and loves to tell anyone who will listen that she wouldn’t be very good at it if it weren’t for a six year mentorship with nationally-renowned dog trainer, Aimee Sadler.

But we’re getting ahead of our story…

Like so many things in life, Carly’s path to dog training started quite serendipitously and, for her story, in Oakland, CA, in 2002, when she witnessed a 7 week old puppy tossed from a car. Dirty, bleeding, and scared, that 7 week old puppy – whom Carly scooped up immediately and named Pig (because she had a cute, little, curly-q deformed tail) and who lived a wonderful and long life until leaving us in 2016 at the age of 14 and a half years – would be the start of it all for Carly. At 14 weeks old, Pig, who had been such a lovely puppy for seven weeks, transformed into a complete terror, reducing the household to tears.
