About Rebecca:


​Rebecca teaches a variety of dog training classes and private lessons. She has been a certified dog trainer since 2004. She has worked with hundreds of dogs over the last 15 years. Her strengths are problem solving, dealing with behavioral issues, and customer service.

Puppy Preschool 

These 3 classes are a great way to start your puppy off on the right paw for training. $60.00

Do you have a brand new puppy or a dog that needs to replace some bad habits with good ones? You will find I am not a "one size fits all" type of trainer. Each dog has its own personality and reacts differently to training. We will help you develop a training method that works for you and your dog's needs.

This fast paced fun 4 week class will teach your pup some fun tricks. $80.00
