AKC German Shepherds Breeding - Boarding - Training

I teach a group beginner and intermediate / advanced class on Tuesday nights at Averill Park High School. In these group classes you will learn to walk your dog on a loose lead without pulling, to engage with your dog (after all, don't we all want our dog to pay attention to us in the midst of distractions?), and how to achieve a reliable recall.  You and your dog will have the opportunity to earn an AKC title.  The last class is a test for AKC Star (puppies) or CGC (AKC Canine Good Citizen). 

you can find information on the training page


I train and compete with my German Shepherd dogs in the sport of Schutzhund (now called IGP) at local, regional and national level events. 

 AKC Canine Good Citizen instructor and evaluator. 

My dog Brazen won the 2016 New England Regional Champions. Brazen was the highest scoring HOT (handler owned and trained), highest scoring female dog, and the highest scoring breed surveyed dog.
