Profile: Hi, my name is Angela Roberts. I have been working within the dog world since I was 16 years old.
My very first job was at a doggie daycare and boarding facility. Working with dogs has always been a passion of mine since I was a little girl in the 7th grade and got my first rescue dog named Ginger.
A year and a half ago I decide that training dogs is what I wanted to spend the rest of my life doing.
I have worked with many different breeds of dogs and rescue dogs.
I have 5 rescues myself and each one came from very different backgrounds with different issues.
I also help my parents run a doggie daycare and boarding facility.
Profile: I started working with dogs at a doggy daycare when I was 18. While working with my dog to build his confidence, I found my calling and decided to further my education to become an ABC Certified dog trainer to help owners build a better relationship with their dogs.
Profile: I am a dog trainer who is limited to small dogs and puppies. I will be focusing on simple obedience cues, potty training, puppy nipping and chewing. Training sessions will take place at the dog owner's home until the proper facilities are available.
Profile: I specialize in force-free, positive based dog training.
I am an active member of the Professional Dog Trainers of the Mid-South and offer private lessons in the privacy and comfort of your own home. Group classes are in progress as well.
I also offer dog sitting services in the Midtown Memphis area. I have three beloved rescue dogs of my own, and would love to provide you with the comfort and knowledge you need to build an excellent relationship with your dog.

Profile: I believe a well-trained dog is a valuable member of the family. I use positive reinforcement training methods so your dog(s) keep their spirit and personality while molding them into the dog you want.
I offer obedience training and behavior modification to puppies and dogs in Germantown, Memphis, Collierville, N. Mississippi, and Shelby County. I offer private in-home training by the hour, and training packages are available. I'm also an experienced dog walker and offer dog walking services to clients in Germantown and Collierville, TN
