You will have noticed I included Spokane and Pullman area trainers too. Finding a good dog trainer is extremely important! I hope that you will be able to find a dog trainer that you respect and connect with; remember that you never have to do anything a trainer tells you too if your gut is telling you not too – they should understand and give you alternatives.  There are dog trainers in our area that I have not listed, some because they are not recommended based on the feedback of dog owners or perhaps I just haven’t come across them.
Please feel free to share about your experiences with these or any other dog trainer in the area.

  1. Sandy is a wonderful instructor that is very knowledgeable and shares techniques, tidbits, and tips to help her students and their dogs perform better. I have a German shepherd with a type A personality and Sandy has helped me understand how to get the most from Jay and at the same time Jay loving what she is doing.

  2. Thanks, Molly. I am in contact with a rescue organization for shelties, if anyone wants to contact me looking for a nice sheltie that might need a forever home. I’m not sure about any of the other breeds at this moment, but I will certainly keep my ears open so that we can find homes for as many as we can.

  3. Could you add my kennel name, Kalea Shelties, Sagle, Idaho, 208-265-4541, to your list of breeders for Shetland Sheepdogs? I have contacts with other Sheltie breeders and rescue groups. Thank you!

    1. Thank you for the information – I would love to know more about the rescue groups so that I can post them up on the Rescues page!

  4. This comment was made on this page: http://northidahodogfun.com/2009/11/a-family-dog-not-to-be-confused-with-the-family-dog/ and I thought it should also be posted here.

    As Idaho is the Gem State, Karen is a true GEM of Idaho!
    Her caring, compassion and skill with dogs & with their owners is exceptional. We have been so blessed with her work with Miracle, our miracle dog…and us! I most highly recommend Karen for anyone looking for someone to help with their family dog. We travel an hour each way to get to A Family Dog, because we know the love and care and talented training we all receive from Karen at A Family Dog.
