I am Claudia, the owner of Train This Dog.
My goal is to help you teach your dog things YOU find valuable. Everyone has different needs. So no judgement, if your dog sleeps in your bed, and you are happy with this, I'm happy too. If you want to change this, we can.
If you want your dog to sit, down, stay the first time you ask, we can do that too. If you want your dogs to be obedient AND sleep in your bed, the two are not incompatible.
I have worked with hundreds (and hundreds) of rescue dogs, and purebreds. My dogs have passed the Therapy Dog International test and gotten titles in AKC agility, rally, and obedience and others. More importantly, I want all of my dogs (and yours) to be good family members, polite in society and able to play, travel and go on vacation. Let's have dogs we can be proud of and want to bring with us.
I began my career at St. Hubert's Dog Training School in Madison, New Jersey. I was first an assistant, then a part time trainer. Eventually I was promoted to full time Training and Behavior Consultant. I moved to Savannah, Georgia in 2013 and started Train This Dog.
2022 - I've moved to Peterborough, New Hampshire in the Monadnock region. I cannot wait to meet you and your dogs.
If you need help with puppy training and socialization, general rowdiness, reactivity and fear issues, preparing for therapy dog testing or preparing a dog for vacations, airline flights, general good behavior in public or other environments please contact me.
I am certified by the Certification Council of Professional Dog Trainers, a professional member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, a Canine Good Citizen evaluator for the AKC and a supporting member of the International Association of Applied Behavior Consultants. I am grateful to have been a rescue partner with One Love Animal Rescue and Renegade Paws Rescue in Savannah. These are both excellent, foster based rescues. Any help I was able to give to these wonderful organizations and their hard working volunteers has been a joy to me too.
