In April 2012, we found ourselves with a 10 week old Giant Schnauzer puppy named Bella. She was everything they say about the breed, energetic, playful and hard-headed. I called DTW after a couple of days trying to discourage her instinct of nipping clothes. Connie listened, gave me some tips to work on before the next puppy class began in a week. I called another couple of times during that week and each time her staff offered tried & true solutions. Bella is growing up to be a wonderful dog and it wouldn’t have happened without the support of DTW. I wouldn’t take my dog anywhere else!

The Dog Trainers Workshop Difference…

Everyone at DTW is passionate about dogs.  We want to make sure they learn the skills needed to live healthy lives.  Dog training can make sense to both you and your dog.  It can be fair and balanced.  You don’t have to simply manage your dog’s bad behavior, you can teach him to behave correctly.  Come experience the DTW difference for yourself.


Our mission…

  • We increase awareness of how your dog learns to improve the relationship between you and your dog.
  • We will show you how a trained dog can enrich your life.
  • We help save dog’s lives through training and behavior modification.

Our Junior Handlers

We are proud of our under 18 crowd.  In 2011, the American Kennel Club offered the first National Obedience Competition for Junior Handlers. We had 5 young people competing.  Our junior trainers have competed at that competition every year since then.

If your child is interested in dogs and their training, call us. We are happy to have young handlers participate.
