My name is Dana Striker and I am a graduate of Animal Behavior College where I earned my certification as an ABC Certified Dog Trainer. Animal Behavior College (ABC) is approved by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education and is an internationally recognized school. My commitment to this program has provided me with a formal education in canine obedience training and understanding behavior and its motives. I am
also a graduate of Cooperative Paws where I earned my Service Dog Coach certification. I received a formal education from both in canine obedience training and understanding behavior and its motives and extensive training to aide others with their disabilities using a highly trained service dog. My certifications, education and experience provide me the skills required to effectively and humanely train your dog while keeping alive the spark that makes your dog so special to you.
I am a dog lover first, and a dog trainer second. I know from first-hand experience the difference dog training makes in the relationship between dog and owner. Without professional training it can sometimes be a frustrating relationship, but with an investment in good training a wonderful transformation will occur. I am a force-free, pain-free, fear-free trainer offering skills and obedience and also Companion, Emotional Support and Service Dog training. There is nothing which satisfies me more than to see a happy dog and a happy owner! My mission is to help you and your dog enjoy many happy years together.
I proudly support our military and our first responders. I am also a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, a member of the Pet Professional Guild, and an AKC Canine Good Citizen Program Evaluator.
