I have the honor of training and working with the plethora of pups we have here at Central Bark in West Columbia. I am new in the “official” dog training world, but I have had experience working with dogs since I was a child. With the years I’ve spent alongside Walker Hounds for treeing raccoons, German Shepherds for household protection, and Labrador Retrievers for fetching the remote, I am confident we can work together to transform your dog into the ultimate companion.
