Tiffany Holmes

Dog Trainer & Behavior Consultant


Professional Development Services: PETPro Mentor
Behavior solutions Services: Remote consulting

Tiffany Holmes (she/they) is a dog trainer and behavior consultant with Pet Harmony. She has provided group and private dog training in the bustling metropolis of Fort Wayne, Indiana since 2021. Tiffany believes that all relationships—between members of the same species or different species—are an opportunity to learn from each other and grow together for the duration. An opportunity we should embrace, celebrate, and cherish!

Tiffany’s life as a trainer probably started the moment she brought home her scruffy and complicated bestie, Petey, from a shelter in Michigan. His struggles with the human world kicked her problem-solving skills into high gear, and soon she was assembling a team with a trainer, vet, and veterinary behaviorist to help herself, her husband Nathan, and Petey to all live their best lives. 

Burnt out on the corporate world after the pandemic handed her another layoff, Tiffany decided to put all of the lessons that life as the person of a dog with complex behavior issues provided to good use as a trainer. 

With the amount of information available to pet parents, she feels lucky to have trained and apprenticed under the guidance of her local mentor (in the same group classes Petey took!) using positive, science-based training methods. In group classes or through behavior consulting, Tiffany loves watching people learn to appreciate their dogs for exactly who they are as individuals. 

Canine Enrichment for the Real World was a literal life-changer for Tiffany, and when she began to look for educational opportunities to prepare her for life as a trainer, the Pet Harmony Mentorship Program was exactly the right place. Three years later, she was invited to the team!

Tiffany is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA), a Fear Free Certified Professional (FFCP), and an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator. Tiffany, Nathan, and Pete share their home with a ball python named Artie and a Mexican rosy boa named Spencer.
