Pet Trainer

Local Pet Trainers and Training Classes

When selecting a trainer, it is recommended that you use a trainer that uses only positive, gentle, reward-based techniques.  A trainer that is certified by APBT (Association of Pet Dog Trainers) or CCPBT (Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers) will be schooled in these techniques.  The following is a list of area trainers recommended with the above specifications in mind.
