Our trainers use motivational techniques emphasizing humane, kind treatment. All have won obedience titles with the American Kennel Club, the United Kennel Club, or the Canadian Kennel Club, as well as Flyball and Agility titles. Training Director Sue Walsh is endorsed by the National Association of Dog Obedience Instructors, Inc. (NADOI). Staci Stanley is endorsed by the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT).
All POC instructors complete an extensive apprenticeship program and attend yearly seminars in dog training, behavior, and care. Several instructors and club members are AKC-endorsed Canine Good Citizen evaluators.
