Dog Training for Your Real Life

Is day to day with your dog a struggle? Let us help you build a joyful life with your dog.

Whether your high energy dog needs an outlet for their extra enthusiasm, or your dog’s behavior issues are affecting your relationship with them, we’ll help you figure out ways to have your dog thrive in our two-legged world, making life better for your whole family!

We specialize in helping pet parents understand their dog’s behavior, while also learning how to change it. Our goal is to guide you through the journey of raising a socially, emotionally, and behaviorally healthy dog.

Join us at Glimmer Dog Training, where we know that it’s harder to be a pet than you might think. As a Family Dog Mediator, our trainer will help you move beyond just “training” your dog, and will help bring you both closer together and create a happier, healthier and more understanding relationship between you and your pup.

Hear From Glimmer Dog Graduates!

Tara was incredibly thorough and perceptive in her assessment of the dog and our home situation. She has a wealth of knowledge about dog’s behavior, and humans, too. Her suggestions and resources were relevant and immediately helpful. We are so grateful for her! – E.N. and Frankie
Tara helped us integrate a 5 year old rehomed Border Collie into our family. The dog has some medical and behavioral challenges that have impacted her ability to trust new people and situations. Tara’s assistance has been invaluable. She has helped make a potentially difficult transition for us and our new dog a joyful and rewarding experience. We couldn’t recommend her more highly or enthusiastically! – M.L. and B.G.
My dog loves going to forest school at Glimmer Dog and is noticeably gaining in confidence and learning new things. Tara personalizes the training to bring out the best in all the dogs as well as helping them overcome issues such as being scared of noises and new situations and people… T.W. and Kelcy
