Aimee Sadler is the Director of Behavior and Training for the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation. She is a nationally recognized trainer and speaker specializing in behavioral problems. Her techniques have been derived from twenty five years of working with multiple species, from dogs
to cats, from exotics to marine mammals as a private trainer, within the entertainment industry and within animal sheltering.
Aimee presents at animal welfare and professional dog training conferences, in addition to teaching shelters how to reduce canine euthanasia through her Dogs Playing for Life! program. Aimee’s training and behavior programs have proven to be successful for the Longmont Humane Society and Southampton Animal Shelter, which both regularly achieve canine live release rates in excess of 95% as open admission shelters. Today, DPFL has been introduced by Sadler and her team to shelter professionals at more than 70 shelters internationally, and at numerous national and regional animal welfare conferences.
Sadler has been asked to share her play groups expertise with forward thinking, proactive animal welfare organizations, including the ASPCA, the Humane Society of the United States, Best Friends Animal Society, the Shelter Medicine Department at UC Davis School for Veterinary Medicine, and the Maddies Shelter Medicine Program at the University of Florida.
Additionally, animal care professionals and dedicated volunteers can learn from Sadler through personalized internships under her supervision.
Aimee currently resides in Longmont, Colorado, with her husband Joe, five sons, four rescued dogs, and two cats.
