BIG CHANGES GOING ON HERE!!!

There was a time when I said I would NEVER have a border collie. But then I did. There’s a bit of a learning curve to that breed. They are weird. I say that in the most loving way possible. Truly. Herding dogs, in general, struggle in the modern (sub)urban world, and I found myself working with so many clients with herding dogs. And I helped them overcome their struggles including. So here I am: eyeball deep in herding dogs now. If you have a challenging herding dog, head on over to my new webpage and then reach out to me. Together we can fix this!

Suzanne Dubnicka

PhD, CPDT-KA, FDM, UW-AAB, CPCFT

Suzanne is a self-proclaimed dog nerd. And she wants nothing more than for you and your dog to live your best lives together. Starting her career in professional dog training later in life disproves the old adage that you can indeed teach old dogs (or humans!) new tricks.

As a dog nerd, she learns all she can about dog training and behavior, and then she uses her wealth of knowledge and experience to solve your dog’s behavioral challenges. Suzanne also holds a doctoral degree in statistics from The Pennsylvania State University which tells you that she’s willing to dig deep to solve those challenges in the best way posible.

Less formally, Suzanne enjoys reading, knitting, running, and helping her own dogs live their best lives!

Testimonials

We had the pleasure of working with Suzanne as our trainer for our dog Posey. She was very knowledgeable about canine behavior and provided positive training methods to help us work with our new puppy. Through the use of these strategies, and Suzanne’s support, Posey is a becoming a well-behaved and socialized dog. We are very appreciative of the confidence that Suzanne instilled in us that is aiding in our continual training of Posey.

Heather and Ryan R.

Suzanne was one of the trainers in the class we started when Cinder was 10 weeks old. She was very patient with Cinder and us. Over several months we worked through lots of challenges and ended up with a wonderful lab that is frequently complimented on her behavior. We miss her and River since they moved.
