Claire Cario, MA, CPDT-KA

Claire Cario is a Delaware native who moved to NYC in 1996. She received her M.A. in Animal Behavior & Conservation from Hunter College in 2008. Her thesis, “A Case Study: The Effectiveness and Operator Perspectives of Border Collies as a Humane Strategy for Mitigating Human/Canada Goose Conflict in Greater New York” evaluated the technique and effectiveness of using herding dogs to haze geese from an area. It also focused on the human dimensions to this management solution and investigated the attitudes and perspectives of a small subset of individuals who work with herding dogs in the field of humane goose management.
Claire comes to us after three years as the Private Trainer Manager at School For the Dogs, four years as the Behavior and Enrichment Assistant Manager at Animal Care Centers of NYC, three years as a behavior consultant on the ASPCA Anti-Cruelty Behavior Team, six years as the executive trainer and coordinator for The Good Dog Foundation, and ten years as the owner, operator, and behavior consultant of Barnyard Behavior. She has supervised, managed, and trained animal behavior staff across all sectors of the animal behavior world, developed curriculum for training programs for private training schools, municipal shelters, and therapy dog programs, given webinars on canine behavior topics, built behavior assessment systems, and developed individualized behavior training plans for dogs displaying a wide variety of behavior concerns.
