Amanda Mouisset, Behavior & Training Manager
Email: [email protected]
Amanda grew up in Southern California and the Central Valley, always surrounded by dogs and various collected strays. Amanda volunteered with the SPCA before becoming an employee in 2004.
Amanda oversees the SPCA’s robust Behavior and Training programs, including group classes, private training, and the free behavior helpline. She also began the SPCA’s Ruff Start program where inmates at Salinas Valley State Prison train shelter dogs. Much of her time is spent with the SPCA’s TLC program, helping dogs who are scared, shy, fearful, or suffering from other behavior concerns overcome their trauma to become healthy, happy, and adoptable.
Amanda’s favorite thing is using her skills to bring out a pet’s full potential, then seeing them start a new life with an adoptive family. She also enjoys having the support to start new programs that help rescued pets.
Amanda is a Certified Pet Dog Trainer and a Canine Good Citizen Evaluator.
Amanda shares her home with her family and Stella, a rescued pit bull, and Bowie a handsome Catahoula. She enjoys hiking with her dogs, running, participating in obstacle course races, and spending time with her family.
