We believe in training the dog in front of you and customizing training to you and your dog's needs. The goal of our training is to help owners build relationships with their dogs based on mutual trust and respect. 

Currently, we offer behavior evaluations, private lessons, and group training. Please give us a call or send an email to inquire about training. 



Barb and Felicia are both Canine Good Citizen evaluators. This is the first step before Therapy Dog International testing and certification.

Tests are held here at the Ranch. If your dog is ready to test, please contact us to find out when our next test date is. 

Our Trainers



I grew up in Europe where my love for large breed dogs started. My current dogs are two Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs, which accompany me on my daily hikes. I have extensive experience with behavior modification and reactive/aggressive dogs. My special interests are multiple dog households, socialization, and managing pushy dogs. My goals include building mutual trust and willing compliance.

I have been involved in the dog world for over 20 years. I started out showing at 9 years old in conformation Junior Handling with a Schipperke and then purchased my first show dog at 11 years old. I handled my Bouvier des Flandres to his American, Canadian, and United Kennel Club Championships and also a few Rally titles. Because of some behavior issues with my Bouvier, I was introduced to the other side of the dog world with obedience training which then led into sport dog (IPO/Schutzhund) and behavioral evaluations/modification. For over 10 years, I did specialized work training with reactive and aggressive dogs. Dogs are my passion, and have been a part of every aspect of my life. I have been blessed to have had other dog trainers pour into me as a young trainer, increase my knowledge, and always challenged me to be better.
