Canine Revival, LLC - Dog Training - St Paul, MN
I offer private and group dog training. We can meet at my training center in White Bear Lake or I can come to you.
The Family Life Training Program is my most popular program!
This program incorporates general obedience training, proper house manners and social living skills tailor-made for your dog’s unique personality. No matter the size of your family, we will help your dog learn what it takes to fit in and be an enjoyable part of your everyday life.
Your dog will learn desirable behaviors such as walking nicely on a leash, waiting by the door instead of bolting out, reliable recall, and the proper way to greet visitors. We’ll help you put an end to destructive chewing, housebreaking accidents, unwanted barking, and other issues your dog may be exhibiting. Dogs want to be good. They want to fit in with their family. With this program, your dog will learn how to become an accepted and loved member of your family.
I also offer behavioral counseling, phone consultations, AKC Canine Good Citizen training and testing, service dog training for veterans through Train a Dog - Save a Warrior, and Board and Train in conjunction with All Star Pet Hotel & Day Care!
For more information on all the training services I offer, please check out my website at CanineRevival.com.
As a plus, I'm also certified in Canine Massage & Canine Fitness Training and am a FitPAWS Master Trainer!

How did you hone your craft?
My very first word was "Doggie!" and that set the stage for the rest of my life! Dog Training has been a lifelong passion and wonderful experience for me and I have devoted most of my life to learning as much as possible about dogs in general and about the specific problems people encounter when training their dog. I am always involved in continuing education through seminars, webinars, classes, books, and online learning. Please feel free to check out all my 5-star reviews on my website: CanineRevival.com. I am also certified in Canine Fitness Training, Canine Massage, and I'm a FitPAWS Master Trainer.
What tip would you give pet parents for working with animals that you've learned as a pro?
Always work with the dog in front of you. Don't make generalizations about dogs or certain breeds of dogs. While most dogs have a few things in common, each dog is an individual :)
What is one thing you want pet parents to know about you? It can be whatev-fur you'd like!
I started working with dogs at the age of 11 as a volunteer at the Humane Society in St Paul. By age 13, they offered me a job as the Saturday adoption desk lead employee. From there, my life and passions have revolved around dogs! In the veterinary field, I've been a vet tech, surgical assistant, treatment tech, and xray tech. I am certified in Canine Massage & Canine Fitness and am a Professional Dog Trainer and FitPAWS Master Trainer. I am also an AKC-approved Canine Good Citizen trainer & evaluator and I work with Veteran's through an amazing organization called Train a Dog-Save a Warrior, helping veteran's train their own service dog!
