Mesilla Valley's Dog Training & Behavior Expert!
APRIL NASTASI- April has been helping dogs in Southern New Mexico since 2005 after graduating from NMSU with her bachelors in Animal Science. Wanting to stay here in the Mesilla Valley, April went to work for a local pet store as their area trainer. During her work she was not allowed to work with dogs that had bitten a person or a dog & yet half her dogs in class where afraid of either dogs or people. April's long time experience in Equine behavior helped her to figure out what it was that made dogs grumpy & scared. . After a few years with the increasing need of someone to show people how to change their dogs behavior, April opened her own business doing just that. First in 2009 as AJ's Canine Academy and after the split in partnership, April is now helping dogs with manners & obedience with Aprils K911 Academy.
April's program has grown from just obedience classes to over nights, daycares & working with the owners in public at our local farmers markets to teach the owners how to interact safely & properly with their dogs. They get hands on experience how to meet & greet people in safe way that helps the dog gain confidence in meeting both people and animals. The day cares & over nights helps dogs to get a good foundation where they can learn to be dogs, get over their initial fears with calm assertive dogs in her pack which helps dogs to not over react & grow.
