About Alison Buehler

Alison Buehler is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) and is a Professional Member of the APDT.

Alison loves teaching group classes in Basic Manners and Puppy Essentials at PumpkinPups Dog Training and working closely with private clients around NYC. She recently did some work as a per Diem Behavior Counselor for the ASPCA, and in 2015 she gave her time to a program on Rikers Island, teaching the residents there about positive reinforcement dog training. Her previous work experience includes being a dog groomer, veterinary technician, kennel and daycare employee, dog walker and pet sitter; all adding to her extensive knowledge of dogs.

Her fascination with dog and animal behavior was inspired by her greyhound rescue, Bella. Having learned through that guardianship she now has personal and professional knowledge on Separation and Isolation Anxiety. She brings that knowledge, compassion and warmth to her training style. She is enthusiastic about greyhound rescue and just adopted her new Galgo, River, through Grateful Greyhounds.

Alison has formally studied with top force-free trainers Viviane Arzoumanian, Jenny Chun and Rikke Brogaard. She is fully committed to using only the most ethical force-free means to train, and strives to continue learning and teaching how we can best reside and thrive with these amazing and devoted friends.
