The humans behind the scenes
Now with 15 years experience, Chelle has a knack for many types of issues with many types of dogs. She is now holding training services in a facility in Mt. Juliet, Tn serving Hermitage, Old Hickory, Lebanon, Gallatin, East Nashville, and other surrounding areas. Chelle has built a trusting and effective dog training reputation and is sought out by many people that hear of her via word of mouth.
Nicole became interested in dog training when taking her new puppy Samson through Chelle’s class five years ago. She has been working with For Social Graces ever since. She teaches Star Puppy, Level 1 and Level 2 classes. She has three dogs at home Allie, Samson, and Dexter who are all rescues. In her spare time, she enjoys fostering for National Great Pyrenees Rescue.
Alyson Haley, ABC-CDT (with honors), became interested in training dogs when she rescued a Chinese Crested Powderpuff. Houdini, was anxious and had behavior issues which required extra help.
The pair spent a year attending obedience classes at several well-known facilities, but had difficulty achieving their goals. Then, Alyson found a trainer who was certified through Animal Behavior College, and had such great results she decided to enroll at ABC and become a certified dog trainer herself.
When it was time for her externship, Alyson was placed with For Social Grace’s Chelle Ziegler as her mentor. She has been working at FSG since March of 2020!
