Our History Progress

Megan Started her love for dogs and training in 2008

She started at a facility in Greeley Colorado where she learned proper animal handling of all sizes and breeds, temperament testing along with animal care and nutrition.

During that time Megan knew she loved working with dogs and people therefore, she wanted to continue her training and knowledge about dogs, and how to help dog and handlers communicate better.

Megan Spent 4 years apprenticing owner and head trainers at Progressive School for dogs learning how to communicate and teach others how to train their dogs. 

In 2010 Megan became certified as an AKC Evaluator and has been teaching and testing dogs from 2010 to present.

There she teaches STAR Puppy programs, Certifies Canine Good Citizens and is now offering new courses like Community and Urban CGC testing. She feels that a good trainer never stops learning and evolving their techniques to better help dogs and their humans.

In 2014

Megan wanted to take her training to the next level and was accepted into the Professional dog trainer Program Karen Pryor Academy where we studied clicker training and animal behavior. Megan graduated a Professional dog Trainer in October of 2014.
