Welcome to Compassionate Critter Care!
Dog training with a gentle touch...

I'm an accredited trainer with a passion! Hello, I'm Nan Potter, owner and operator of Compassionate Critter Care, LLC.  I serve the greater Evansville, IN, area with certified dog training using positive reinforcement and humane training methods.

Looking for a dog trainer in Evansville, Newburgh, or the surrounding area? There is an alternative to punishment based training! Compassionate Critter Care will teach you gentle - yet effective - training techniques to significantly improve your dog's behavior!

In-your-home training is my specialty! Your canine friend will enjoy learning in his own natural environment, and you'll love the convenience of sessions scheduled to fit your busy life!

I believe this is truly my mission in life: To assist people to better understand their dogs so they can build a strong relationship and bond.  I know your dog is more than just a pet! Positive, results-oriented dog training will make this special relationship even more rewarding for you and your family!

Compassionate Critter Care emphasizes scientifically based training methods. Using the principles of operant conditioning, owners learn to tell their dogs exactly when they're doing the right thing, and to reward them at exactly the right time. This clear communication, combined with positive reinforcement, is an effective, safe, and humane way to teach any pet - and it makes training fun for you and your dog!

Nan Potter is a graduate of the highly respected Karen Pryor Academy for Animal Training and Behavior
. The innovative institution was founded by Karen Pryor, world-renowned trainer, author, and behavioral biologist.

"Our graduates are not only skilled trainers, they are excellent teachers. I'm proud to welcome 
Nan to the growing family of KPA-certified dog trainers nationwide."
Karen Pryor

Walks with Nan can keep your pet in shape, allow for needed potty breaks, and even alleviate many behavioral issues.  A well-exercised pet is a well-behaved pet!
