Bio: 

Kiki Yablon is a former journalist who brings to her training the same sharp observational, analytical, and expository skills that made her a nationally respected editor.

She began training in 2005 as a client of Laura Monaco Torelli, now the director of Animal Behavior Training Concepts and a Karen Pryor Academy faculty member. In 2009, after several years of increasingly intensive self-directed study, she came on as an apprentice at Animal Behavior Training Concepts, and has since moved on to become a senior trainer and training manager there. Kiki has continued her education by attending seminars, workshops, conferences, and Dr. Susan Friedman's fantastic eight-week course in applied behavior analysis for animal professionals, Living and Learning With Animals, for which she has since become a coinstructor.

Kiki teaches group classes through Animal Behavior Training Concepts, and offers private in-home instruction through both Animal Behavior Training Concepts and her own business, Dog Training by Kiki Yablon.

In February 2011, Kiki graduated with distinction from Karen Pryor Academy, under the instruction of Julie Shaw. She has earned the "client endorsed" distinction through KPA's Assurance, Commitment, and Education program, a system for ensuring that members continue to meet the organization's high standards for force-free training.

A graduate of Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism and the Radcliffe Publishing Course, and a former editor of Outside, Chicago magazine, and the Chicago Reader, Kiki is also available for writing and editing projects related to dog training and behavior.
