About Clever Critters

Clever Critters has been helping pets and pet parents all over Hampton Roads and Tidewater for over a decade! Sydney Warner took over Clever Critters from her mentor, an Associate Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist, in 2014. The first team members joined Clever Critters in 2021, and more continue to join. The company has grown to connect with many local animal care professionals, including trainers, behavior consultants, veterinarians, veterinary behaviorists, pet sitters, rescues, shelters, and more. Having team members who are aligned with the ethics and goals of Clever Critters has allowed us to reach out and make even more community connections to help teach the general public. The Clever Critters Team now provides even more services to a wider area of pets and pet parents. We continue to learn and grow to help the pet community grow in knowledge too. We love our pets and want to improve the human-animal bond for as many families as we can.

Our Training Philosophy

Our team uses ethically and science-backed methods that support the human-animal bond. What does that mean? It means we continue learning new information and techniques that lead to more effective results and decrease or eliminate the risk of fallout behaviors. We regularly add to our training toolbox to reflect this new information and provide better services to you and your pets. The methods we choose to utilize will improve communication and understanding between you and your pet, help meet your pet’s needs, and support you and your pet as a team.

Science says we should choose to train without the use of force, fear, pain, intimidation, or coercion, and instead focus on promoting choice, cooperation, and communication. So that’s what Clever Critters professionals do!

“Training is not something that you do to the learner, it is something that you do with the learner. It is a dialogue, not a monologue.”

-Dr. Susan G. Friedman, Ph.D.
