Hi, my name is Viola Larkin and I am a mother, dog trainer, and a local business owner.
With over 20 years of dog training expertise, I offer in-home, personalized dog training and obedience classes.
For the last 15 years I have trained Service Dogs to provide support for PTSD, mental health, and mobility assistance.
I specialize in pawsitive motivational training methods. Your dog will want to learn because I am an expert in creating fun, enthusiastic, learning environments.
My goal is to meet every challenge you may have with your dog and provide you with the tools to ensure a successful outcome.
