Changes for Columbia Dog Training

Mary Beth and I have been blessed since we started Columbia Dog Training in 2011. We have had the privilege to work with so many great clients and their dogs and people in the rescue community. We have also received tremendous support from fellow local dog trainers and nationally known trainers that I met by attending workshops and shadow programs. Our business has grown far more than we ever expected for our retirement careers and we are very thankful for that.

But that growth has come at a price. The long hours that come with working with and taking care of the rescue board & trains that stay with us, training with clients and their dogs and taking care of our own dogs has taken it's toll over the years. We have reached a point where we need to either give up the rescue work we do or working with client dogs. As we were making this decision it was pointed out to us that there are many trainers that will train dogs for the public. There are not as many trainers that will do what we do for the rescues. So we have made the decision to stop training dogs for the general public. Our plan had been to continue to the end of 2018 however the recent CCL surgery for our dog Huller has moved our plans up.

Therefore effective immediately we will no longer be taking on any new clients. We will finish up with any clients that we have in progress or have already committed to for an evaluation or have scheduled training to begin. Once we have completed this we will close the training center. THIS DECISION WILL NOT EFFECT ANY CLIENTS THAT HAVE UNEXPIRED FREE FOLLOW UP LESSONS OR PREPAID PACK WALKS. WE WILL BE CONTINUING OUR WEEKLY PACK WALKS.

This Facebook page will remain so we can post information about the pack walks, the rescues we are working with along with other dog related information. At some point our website will be taken down and our e-mail address will be changing.  The new e-mail address is  This address is already active.

We want to thank everyone that supported us over the years. This is an emotional and difficult decision but one that we feel needs to be made. Feel free to contact us should you have any questions.
