Behavioural consultant/ Trainer/ Daycare attendant
Nice to meet you, I’m Mel and I joined the ABT team in 2014. I graduated from an Animal Science Degree at Adelaide University in 2017 and am now currently studying a certificate of Dog Behaviour through the National Dog Trainers Federation. I started my career at ABT as an intern and now you will see me in practically every service including private appointments, classes, daycare, and workshops. I particularly have a passion for working with dogs that have behavioural problems such as anxiety, reactivity, and aggression. I currently have 2 dogs; Koda a 5-year-old rescue Kelpie X and Kenai a 1-year old Husky. Koda flared my interest in dog behaviour as working through his reactivity, hyperactivity and anxiety gave her a better understanding of what is going on in his highly-strung mind.
