Meet the Trainer

Rebekah Piedad, KPA-CTP knew she wanted to train animals since she was a small child.  As a toddler, she had her heart set on training lions and tigers in local zoos, but dogs stole her heart in adulthood.

Rebekah has owned and fostered countless dogs ranging from greyhounds to Cane Corsos.  She has volunteered for greyhound rescue, pit bull rescue, and served on the Board of Directors of the Humane Society of Stanislaus County. She eased into the dog profession as a pet sitter and dog walker.

In 2013, Rebekah became a Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner.  She worked at a high-volume boarding, training, and daycare facility in the Central Valley of California before starting her own business in the Bay Area.  Rebekah has trained dogs for commercial advertising, and she revitalized both public and shelter animal training programs at the East Bay SPCA where she worked as the Manager of Behavior and Training before moving to Shasta County where she opened her own private training facility.

Specializing in fearful and aggressive behaviors, Rebekah has worked with private clients and collaborated with rescue groups, shelters, veterinarians, and veterinary behaviorists. She seeks to constantly expand her knowledge and skill set by continuing her education in the science of Applied Behavior Analysis and the most progressive animal training techniques.  She believes that all training should be fun for both humans and dogs and seeks to inspire a collaborative mindset so that each human and dog can enjoy their companion to the fullest.

Rebekah currently lives in Shingletown, CA with her two dogs and two cats.  When she is not training, she is usually hiking or backpacking through the Cascades.
