Our trainers come from an extensive background of working with dogs, both professionally and with their own pets. Their love of dogs and thirst for knowledge is unmatched. From a combination of formal education, continuing education through books and seminars, and years of personal experience, our trainers have a wide variety of tools in their toolboxes to tackle even some of the toughest behavior issues.
Kim and Lewis are constantly expanding their knowledge of dog training and continuing their education by attending seminars, conferences, classes/workshops, and working with and learning from many of the best dog trainers and behavior specialists in the world. They are members of the IACP (International Association of Canine Professionals), and approved evaluators for the AKC’s Canine Good Citizen program. Kim is currently a member of the AWMA (American Working Malinois Association) and USCA (United Schutzhund Clubs of America), competing with her dogs Arya and Lexi in AKC Obedience and the sport of Schutzhund. She is also preparing her young dog Riddick for a future career as a Schutzhund competitor. Lewis is working with his Shepherd puppy Echo to compete in Schutzhund, and discovering other avenues that she may thrive in as she grows.
