Meet Nan Potter, a certified dog trainer and dedicated pet sitter with a passion...

Nan with 2 canine friends

"Ever since I can remember, I've had a strong compassion for many kinds of animals—from the family dog to birds, reptiles, cats, and small pocket pets.

I discovered my love for dog training after I began teaching at an Evansville IN retail store in 2005. It felt like home, and what God intended for me to do. I was eager to become the best trainer I could be.  I graduated from the Animal Behavior College in June of 2007, and from the Karen Pryor Academy for Animal Training & Behavior in September of 2008. I will always strive for excellence in my field, and I look forward to continued learning.

As the former president of Kentuckiana Pug Rescue, I realize that teaching people the proper techniques to communicate with their dogs will reduce the number of animals surrendered to rescue organizations, humane societies, and animal control shelters. Assisting people to better understand their dogs so they can build a strong relationship and bond is truly my passion.  And that is the foundation of Compassionate Critter Care, LLC, my in-your-home pet-sitting and dog training business serving the greater Evansville IN area.

Looking for a qualified dog trainer who focuses on positive reinforcement and makes training fun? I would be honored to work with you and your dog! Need a Newburgh or Evansville pet sitter to care for your pets while you're away? I would consider it a privilege! Please call me at 812-589-8946 or
contact me for information or a consultation.  I look forward to hearing from you and learning about your pets!"

"Often veterinary professionals are not sure to whom they should refer clients for animal training. It can be difficult to find a trainer who uses non-punishment based training, appreciates and respects the human-animal bond, and demonstrates good rapport and teaching ability with owners.

Through educational assessments and hands-on workshops, 
Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partners have demonstrated a high level of expertise and understanding of scientifically based positive reinforcement training methods...

When referring to a
KPA Certified Training Partner, veterinary professionals can be confident that their clients will be taught state-of-the-art humane training techniques, and will be treated with the utmost respect and professionalism."
