certified dog trainer

Dawn M. Gardner is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers, a professional member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT), and a member of the Pet Professional Guild (PPG), Modern Dog Group, and the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants.

“I have been training dogs since 1997, promoting force-free, science based training methods, instructing group classes and providing private in-home dog training.  I have worked extensively with dogs with behavioral issues, including those suffering from anxiety, aggression and other stress related disorders.  I have dedicated much of my free time to rehabilitating and re-homing shelter dogs with a variety of rescue organizations.

As part of my passion for advocating science based dog training methods, I have had the privilege to lecture at Virginia Tech’s School of Veterinary Medicine.

In 2014 I returned to Arkansas after 12 years in rural North Carolina, where Happy Hound Pet Services began in 2007. I live in Rudy, Arkansas, with my nine dogs and occasional foster dogs.
