Looking for a Private Puppy Trainer In or Near Port Saint Lucie?


    Why work with your own personal puppy trainer?

    1. Your needs and goals are unique
    No one-size-fits-all puppy training class for you! Your household has specific puppy raising issues you need help with, in your own priority order.

    2. You want relief NOW
    And I want you to get that relief now—no waiting for the next puppy training class to begin or for your puppy to finish their shots. Let’s get moving!

    3. You don’t have time for class
    If you’re like most of my clients, you’ve got plenty on your plate without adding a weekly outing. No worries—I’ll bring the puppy training to you.

    4. You want results where they count—at home
    You don’t need your puppy to behave in class—you need her to behave at home. So it only makes sense to do the training there in your real-life space.*

    5. You want a puppy (& dog) you can take anywhere
    You want your dog to be part of your family, along for the ride whenever possible. You tell me what you want to do with your dog, and we’ll train for

    How does this sound?

    I want you to enjoy a puppy who…

    potties in the right places, instead of on your rug
    uses her teeth on her own toys instead of your skin and clothes
    has an off switch, instead of living with a constantly-whirling dervish
    can be left alone without crying and barking
    comes when called the first time you call (instead of the 10th, if at all)
    walks nicely on leash instead of dragging you down the sidewalk
    waits politely at doors and curbs instead of dashing ahead

    I want you to enjoy a puppy who grows up to be a dog you can take—and trust—anywhere!

    That’s what personalized puppy training is all about—the trifecta of basic manners foundations, problem behavior solving and prevention, and socialization for a well-behaved family member everyone loves to have around!

    Customer Reviews

    Our 17 month old German Shepherd was out of control. He jumped on people, pulled like crazy on his leash, and would ignore any commands we gave him. After spending a month with Cathy he is now very well behaved. Cathy is a wonderful trainer and we highly recommend her.



    Great experience! Cathy is great with both the dogs and us, it’s amazing to see the transformation in our pups!!!!

    Cathy has been an excellent trainer for our dog and for us! She knows how a dog thinks and is able to help us understand how to communicate with our pet. We’ve been very pleased with the results of her training.
