Aaron Caldwell

Dog Behavior Co-Manager, Austin Pets Alive!

Aaron began his work with Austin Pets Alive! in February of 2011, the same month that Austin became a No Kill city. After spending over a year with the organization as a Lead Adoption Counselor, Aaron was given the opportunity and privilege to join the behavior team as the Dog Behavior Program Assistant Manager. Under the tutelage and guidance of Mike Kaviani, Aaron worked as a playgroup facilitator, adoption/foster follow up coordinator/trainer, and spent time helping with the behavior modification and rehabilitation of APA!'s shelter population. In the summer of 2016, Aaron took on the role of Dog Behavior Program Co-Manager with Marian Cannell, and is now collaborating as much as possible to keep Austin the largest No Kill city in the world.
