Coralyn “Cori” Pedota CPDT-KA

Pronouns: They/them/theirs

Cori is a certified trainer with a serious passion for the science of behavior. Their connection with animals began with their childhood dogs, and their interest in training started with horses. While still in high school, they worked and performed at the equestrian theater (yes – horse circus!) The Noble Horse Theatre. Cori started their canine career in the heart of busy Chicago, and it was there that they learned about the unique needs of dogs living an urban lifestyle. They interned at a working dog kennel in West Virginia, where they learned about socialization for future police, military, and sport dogs, odor detection imprinting, and more. Somewhere in the middle of that, they even learned how to clicker-train chickens. During their free time, Cori trains for dog sports and continues their never-ending journey of education.
