Meredith is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer and recently works part time at Shelby Humane Society, working on behavior modification with shelter dogs experiencing issues with extreme fear, reactivity, and resource guarding. She created and still leads Woof Pack. She believes that an empathic and compassionate approach to dog training allows us to better understand our dogs, which then allows us to communicate with them better. She received an undergraduate degree in Plant Science from the University of Delaware in 2014 and a Masters in Entomology from the University of Georgia in 2016.



Anthony has been with Love Them Train Them since January 2018 and volunteers his time at the Shelby Human Society. He is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer and a member of the Pet Professional Guild. He believes training needs to be as much fun for the dog as it is for the human and that relationship-building and communication are crucial. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Operations Management with a specialization in Leadership Communication from the University of Alabama.
