Tara Palardy, ABCDT, cBATi, FPPE Presenter

Trainer/Mentor Trainer

(403) 342-0085           tara@the-academy.ca

Tara started her career in early 2008 when she joined PetSmart as a Dog Trainer. In 2009, she completed her studies with Animal Behaviour College, and founded The Academy, quickly establishing herself as one of Red Deer's most sought after dog trainers. Tara is the Red Deer Externship Mentor Trainer for Animal Behaviour College (ABC), one of the most respected positive-reinforcement dog trainer colleges in North America.

Tara is a passionate advocate for positive reinforcement training methods that enhance a dog's ability to learn while increasing confidence, resulting in a healthy, well-adjusted pet. She is a vocal opponent of punitive, dominance-based training techniques which often result in 'quick fixes' but ultimately cause more long-term harm than good while damaging the owner-dog relationship.

Tara lives in Red Deer with her Keeshond, Rommel. She also has a Congo African Grey parrot named Gemma, and two kittens, Cupcake and Sprinkles.
