Assistant Instructors

Our Assistant Instructors help give our clients a great experience in our group classes and events! We don’t know what we’d do without them!

Chris Kelly 

Chris is no stranger to teaching. In addition to helping our clients train their dogs in the evenings, she is a Professor and Supervisor of Recreation and Athletics at Hudson Valley Community College.  

With her level of commitment, it’s no surprise that she has such well trained dogs like her rabbit-hunting beagle, Belle, German Shepherd running -companion, Fritzi, and therapy-certified Labrador Retriever, Winter.

Chris finds the interactions with owners, and their pets to be the most enjoyable aspect of working at All Dawgs- seeing them grow and change together for their ultimate well-being. Chris is also pet first aid certified.







LuAnn Charbonneau 

LuAnn is one of our Assistant Instructors. She is also currently works full time as the Assistant Director at the Research Foundation for SUNY at the University of Albany for Awards Management Services, where she manages all aspects of Financial Reporting and collections.

LuAnn also volunteers for the Rensselaer County 4-H Horse program whenever she can. She is now raising her 6 month old Bernese Malamute mix, Sampson, and found her love of training through attending our group classes, where both she and Sampson have continued to impress us! She loves working with the staff and clients, and seeing the progression of learning in the dogs she is working with is very rewarding for her.

LuAnn is a fast learner with a positive attitude at all times who also enjoys weightlifting, reading, and spending time with Sampson and her husband, Ray on their Hobby Farm in Stephentown.
