All About Dogs Trainer - Chris

Chris

Chris has been a positive dog trainer since 2016. His favorite part of training is figuring out what works for each individual dog. It’s like a puzzle, and when it’s solved it’s fun not just for him, but the owner and dog as well. He also trained his cat to follow basic obedience cues like sit, down, come and stay. Chris specializes in obedience for puppy and adult dogs.

Lotta

Lotta has been teaching classes in obedience and agility for 20+ years and recently joined the All About Dogs team in 2019.
Among all the animals Lotta has been surrounded by, dogs have always been the ones closest to her heart. Her passion for dog training and dog sports grew in leaps and bounds after she imported her first Belgian Tervuren in 1996. His enthusiasm for life and for working led to involvement in numerous dog sports such as obedience, agility, lure coursing, conformation and barn hunt. But first and foremost, training dogs to learn how to become well mannered family members has been of greatest importance.
Beyond the dog world, Lotta is a registered nurse. She also stays busy running a family horse farm where her 4 current dogs, 2 Belgian Tervuren, a Belgian Malinois and a Sheltie, enjoy playing. Her household also includes 3 cats, 2 snakes, numerous chickens and a fish.

Melinda

I never had dogs growing up however I always had a love for them. When I was 21 and moved out of my parents house for the first time I got my first dog Max, a Puggle. After 5 years of just owning Max I came across a dog who was about to be euthanized due to biting someone in the shelter. She was a 3 year old Chiweenie (Chihuahua/Dachshund mix). I got to her and rescued her just in time. Once I adopted her I found she had a lot of fear aggression. I took a good year or so to rehabilitate her so she can live a relatively normal and happy life. I fell in love with the psychology of animal behavior vs human behavior and it fascinated me. I thought I have to do something with my life where I save those dogs who may not get a second chance. Immediately I thought dog training since it deals with animal behavior. I did some research on different training schools and came across CATCH Canine Trainers Academy. It took me just over a year to complete my schooling. In April of 2015 I became certified. My first job as a trainer was at petsmart and I happened to get this job right when I was in the middle of school in August of 2014. Throughout my training career I also became certified as an evaluator to conduct the cgc (canine good citizen) test back in January 2016. In my free time I also work with my own personal dogs doing agility. I just got hired here at all about dogs in February 2018. I am excited to expand my skills here at all about dogs and continue to learn more and be a part of this wonderful company. My passion in life is to keep dogs out of shelters and to rehabilitate those dogs who need a 2nd chance.

All About Dogs - Pam

Pamela

Pam started working at All About Dogs in 2009 offering her Reiki and Canine massage services but soon she expanded her job responsibilities into the daycare. Spending time with the dogs and watching how they interact led her to learn more about canine body language and behavior. Being a regular in many types of training classes such as agility, Rally-O and obedience with her own dogs she felt the desire to learn to teach training classes and help other dogs and their owners build positive relationships. She mentored with a local trainer for over a year while continuing to read and learn all that she could. She has been teaching classes at All About Dogs since 2012. In December 2018 she was accepted as a Pets for Vets trainer.  She looks forward to helping the Veterans of our area find a companion from local rescues and shelters.

Train you dog to walk safely on a treadmill. It’s a great way to provide exercise in a safe and climate controlled environment. The trainer will send a brief report card once the training is completed.

We will teach your dog the necessary cues and skills to get on, off and walk comfortably on our treadmill. You can then use this skill on your treadmill at home.

Multiple sessions will most likely be necessary unless your dog has prior treadmill experience. Completion of the Treadmill Training and approval is needed before your dog can participate in Treadmill Time.
Walking on a treadmill is not an option for all dogs and can depend on their level of confidence and comfort.

Cost:
$10.10 for 10 minutes at our facility.**
