Why I Became a Dog Trainer

I believe that dog training is the best way to enhance the bond between dog and owner, laying the foundation for long-lasting companionship.


Cailin and Angela were great. We have two puppies so we were in two Puppy Manners classes. I would recommend both of them to others. They have a great understanding of dogs and each of their unique personalities.

Cailin was a great trainer for our Puppy Manners class, providing valuable feedback on our pup's progress and always willing to answer questions and additional support as needed.
