Bio: 

Amy grew up in Connecticut and in 2001 moved to Burlington, VT, where she attended the University of Vermont, graduating in 2005 with her bachelor’s degree in nursing. Upon graduation, Amy moved to Colorado to start her nursing career.

In 2008, an Alaskan husky named Evey found her way into the Creaven home and has since left her mark on Amy. Growing closer to her own dog, Amy discovered that she wanted to help others nurture their relationships with their animals. She decided to become a dog trainer.

From 2011 - 2015 Amy worked at the Humane Society of Boulder Valley (HSBV). At HSBV, Amy gained experience with both shelter dogs in need of behavior modification for issues such as resource guarding, fear, separation anxiety, body-handling sensitivity, and dog/dog reactivity. She also worked with public clients and their pet dogs with similar issues as well as the added issue of reactivity toward people. 

Continuing education is a very important aspect to any field and dog training is no different. Amy strives to go to at least one seminar every year if not more. Every new client is different and deserves the best care for their whole family and this is what Amy strives for with Creaven Good Behavior.

She now resides in Fort Collins, Colorado, with her wonderful and supportive husband Noah, her daughter Amelia, and her “non-human child” Evey.
