Charles Wohr CPDT-KA
Charles is a graduate of Syracuse University and has spent the last 18+ years living and working in New England. After many years of working in the corporate and higher education worlds, Charles transitioned into a new career working with dogs (and their people).
Charles became interested in dog training after adopting Jackson, an Australian Shepherd rescued from the devastating 2011 tornadoes in Alabama. He came to Boston emaciated, injured, refusing to eat, skittish of most things, and shut down. Jackson flourished under Charles’ training and guidance. His challenges allowed for a unique, yet difficult hands-on experience and have given Charles insights on how to help clients and their dogs deal with similar issues.
Charles first began working for Crossbones (then Spring Forth Dog Academy) in 2012 after meeting Katherine at an IAABC conference and learning from many great trainers in the Boston area. He started out with us by walking dogs and assisting with group classes. Over time, he began teaching classes and in-home private lessons. Along the way, he’s taken a couple of breaks to see other parts of the country, including two and a half years training shelter dogs to become service dogs for veterans. We’re glad to have him back on our crew!
