Karen Pryor Academy CTP, graduate of Canisius college's Animal Behavior, Ecology and Conservation program, and member of the behavior and training staff at the humane society of greater Rochester.
Greg has spent his entire life among animals, starting with a border collie named Casan. The list only grew from there: more dogs, fish, frogs, turtles, guinea pigs, gerbils, and even a prairie dog. He has been working with animals for many years, beginning by shadowing veterinarians at the age of 15. In 2012, he began studying Animal Behavior, Ecology, and Conservation at Canisius college. It was here that he first practiced clicker training, by teaching rats to run through obstacle courses. Three years later he graduated and got a job at a boarding facility in Avon, NY. During that time, he attended the Karen Pryor Academy along with his corgi, Scamp, to become a certified professional dog trainer. After he and Scamp earned a perfect score on their final assessment, he began teaching private lessons both at work as well as in his free time for family and friends. In August, 2017, Greg was hired at Lollypop Farm as an adoption counselor, and only a few months later transferred into the behavior department. Greg currently lives with his cat Molly.
