Annika comes to Pavlov with five years of professional dog training experience in California and Arizona. A graduate of Moorpark College’s Exotic Animal Training program and Animal Behavior College, Annika has applied her education and skill to training dogs at PetSmart, and exotic mammals at the Denver Aquarium. She also gained valuable hands-on experience interning for a local dog trainer, so when Annika applied for Pavlov’s Internship Program, we insisted she join our team!
Annika enjoys training the otters, sloth, and a rather social porcupine at the aquarium in cooperative handling skills and party tricks, but her real passion lies in training dogs and their humans. Annika’s affable nature makes it easy for people to connect with her, as she expertly guides them from one lesson to the next.
Smitten with Colorado’s outdoor landscape, Annika spends quite a bit of her free time hiking the foothills with her personal dogs. When not dog training, Annika tends to Pavlov’s social media platforms.
