Berni Vipond, ABCDT - Certified Dog Trainer

Dog Training in Augusta, Ga

When I got my first Rottweiler in 1992, I worked with an excellent trainer who opened the door for me to the world of dog behavior and training. Since then, I have worked specifically with companion animals and their owners to help prevent behavior problems, and build a strong bond between human and dog. My passion is being able to provide owners with the tools to bring out the best in their dogs.

My methods are strictly positive, I believe that the bond between owner and dog is the key to successful training and work hard to provide methods that set the dog up for success and are enjoyable for the owner.

I take a personal interest in my students and strive to provide resources, information, and referrals when needed to address their concerns for their pets in the best possible fashion.

My personal dogs have earned their Canine Good Citizen certificates, and been certified Therapy dogs.
