Welcome to Calm Family Dog Training . My name is Susan Cole and I am the owner and head trainer. I am a balanced trainer that communicates both Yes and No.
I have owned dogs all my life and my life turned upside down when I adopted a young cattle dog mix named Pepper. We had been told that Pepper was "good with other dogs", which turned out to be the farthest from the truth. She fought with our other dogs and we could not walk her in our neighborhood without her turning into "Cujo" at the sight of other dogs. We were told by many local trainers to return Pepper to the shelter because there was nothing we could do.
Desperate to bring calm and control back to our home, I searched online for help. I found balanced trainers willing to help me train Pepper on my own and enabled me to keep her.
I began helping neighbors, family and friends with dog problems they were having. I enjoy helping families regain control and including their dogs in their lives.
I decided to follow this passion and created Calm Family Dog Training.
I attended training at T3: Train the Trainers with Jeff Gellman, Sean O'Shea and Tori Smith.
