More About Amanda Shyne

Amanda Shyne is the founder of Data Driven Agility in Springfield, VT.  Amanda pursued a graduate degree in animal behavior at Northeastern University in Boston, MA. Her PhD dissertation examined the effects of environmental enrichment on zoo animal welfare. Due to her training as a researcher, her agility school takes a scientific approach to dog training. She is constantly looking for the most effective ways to communicate course direction to dogs.  Amanda is not afraid to try new techniques and enjoys taking seminars as much as she does teaching them.  One of her catch phrases, “Good to know,” reminds her students that all data is important—even if it suggests the need for more training.  Amanda loves agility and will continue to learn from her dogs for the rest of her life.
