Dog Training Casses 2019

Learn how our dog training programs in Riverside, CA can help you and your pet meet your training goals. 

Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center offers training classes and resources to address a variety of needs for companion animals. Our training philosophy is based on the behavioral science concepts of positive reinforcement. Training your pet using these methods will not only help them learn new behaviors more quickly, it will also strengthen the bond you share.

Training is offered virtually and in person. Anyone is welcome to join our virtual classes, whether you’re a member of our local community or joining us from afar!

She believes that passion drives success, and behind every successful Canine, there’s a person who’s passionate about aiding in that success. That’s where Katie comes in! As an avid dog lover from a young age, she has spent her entire life dedicated to studying and understanding more about man (or woman’s!) best friend, and the extraordinary influence that dogs have on our own lives.

    Katie began her career as a Professional Dog Trainer at a young age. After over 12 years of professional training, she continues to remain up to date on the most recent positive reinforcement training methods and techniques, and also continues her education through attending training seminars and conferences, such as clicker expo, and is a member of the Association of Peg Dog Trainers (APDT.)
