Thank you for your interest in training with Second Act Dog Training. I am currently limiting my private practice to shy/fearful dogs and I am fully booked at this time.  

See below for local trainers I recommend. 

Recommended Trainers and Classes

When looking for a trainer, don't be shy about asking questions! Dog training is a completely unregulated industry and anyone can say she or he or they is/are a "dog trainer" or "behavior consultant." You have a right, as your dog's guardian, to ask:

 -- What is your training philosophy?

 -- What tools do you use (or not use) in training?

 -- What certifications do you hold and what organization/s certified you?

 -- Where or with whom did you do your training?

 -- What is your experience as a dog trainer? 

 -- What organizations do you belong to? 

 

Here are some local trainers I know and recommend:
