Qualified and experienced Dog Trainer



Instructor:  I am Rebecca Watford and I have 15 years of dog training and teaching experience.  I acquired a wide range of skills by working with many breeds and have mentored under some of the best obedience trainers in the Southeast.  I attend classes and seminars to stay abreast of the most current and effective methods of training.  As a member of Five Flags dog training club, I have served as Training Director, instructor, and board member.  I am a certified AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator, a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, and the Doberman Pinscher Club of America.


In 1999 I started competing in obedience, and a few years later added agility.   Past Dobermans have earned obedience and agility titles.  My current Doberman has earned the Utility Dog (UD) obedience title, Working Aptitude Certification among others.  My Toy Fox Terrier “Flirt”  earned her Utility Dog (UD) making her the 4th Toy Fox Terrier in history to achieve this title. We were also invited for the first time to the National Obedience Championship held in March 2016. 


After you complete your basic foundation training, I am able to effectively assist you, should you choose to, seek information for Pet Therapy, Agility, Obedience competition, Fly Ball, Search and Rescue or any other activity.  These fun and challenging sports benefit the dog both physically and mentally since many breeds were bred to be active and work with their owners. 


I feel very fortunate to be able to do what I love; many times training makes all the difference between a dog keeping his home or going to the shelter.  I bring my experience with a variety of breeds, my enthusiasm, and my love of dogs to each session. 

I look forward to meeting you and your dog!


If you don’t train your dog, your dog will train you!
