I'm Andrea Thuringer, CPDT-KA. I Want to Help Your Puppy

I'm a dog trainer who wants to give you all the tools you need to effectively train and better your puppy, for a fraction of the cost a dog trainer would charge.

I Use Positive Reinforcement Dog Training Only!

About Me

Hi, I'm Andrea Thuringer. I'm a Certified Professional Dog Trainer, I received my Certificate in Applied Animal Behavior from the University of Washington, I have worked as a professional dog trainer for 10 years, and am the proud pet parent of my golden retriever, Wrenley.

Positive Reinforcement Dog Training

I specialize in the type of training that is based on rewards and is free from force or pain. This is evidenced to be the most effective, humane and long-lasting form of training.

Helping You Develop a More Obedient Puppy

I specialize in obedience, which improves your puppy's ability and willingness to listen to you which helps you manage behavior, avoid frustrating situations and improve your bond with your puppy.

Easy to Follow Training Courses

I've created numerous, easy-to-follow online courses that will help you train your puppy like a professional would. They will provide you and your puppy with all the benefits of hiring a dog trainer for a fraction of the price.

Live, Online Training Consultations

I also offer live and customized online training sessions via Zoom. Pet parents that have signed up for my courses get these at a discount, but you don't have to be a member to schedule a consultation with me.
