 Anne Pantall, CPDT-KA
Anne Pantall is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) with over 27 years of training and teaching experience. She is strongly committed to using only humane, force-free, positive training methods that are based on the science of animal learning.

A dog lover all her life, Anne's involvement in dog training began in 1991 when she took her Basset Hound, Ziggy, to training classes offered by the local dog club in her former home town in southwest Florida. Anne eventually joined the dog club and went on to put an AKC Companion Dog title on Ziggy when he was 16 months old. Ziggy also earned a second Companion Dog title through World Wide Kennel Club and was a certified therapy dog and an AKC Canine Good Citizen.

Anne began working as an assistant training instructor for the dog club in 1992 and taught her first class as an instructor in 1994. She was responsible for introducing the CGC class and test into the club's training program and was the evaluator for their first CGC test in June of 1995. That same year, after attending an Ian Dunbar Puppy training seminar, she established one of southwest Florida's very first Puppy Kindergarten classes. 

Anne has taught Puppy Kindergarten, Basic Manners, Canine Good Citizen, Novice Obedience, Tricks and 4-H classes throughout the years and has shown and titled in AKC, UKC, and WWKC Obedience and Conformation. She has also participated in tracking and hunting tests with her dogs and has several hunting titles on her PBGV, Tanner. Anne served on the board of directors for most of the 17 years she was a club member and was Training Director from September of 2006 until her move to Gainesville in May of 2008.

Anne was a training instructor for Paws on Parole from its inception in March, 2009 and a volunteer at Alachua County Animal Services until her move from Gainesville in 2013. She now supports Paws on Parole on a volunteer basis as a training and behavior consultant and webmaster in addition to  offering private training consultations and group classes in the Helen, GA area through her business, A Clever Canine.
