We Are Here For You

Starr Chumard

Owner/Head Trainer

I’ve always, ever since I can remember, had a love for dogs. We had family dogs growing up and the bond with them was strong.

I am an expert in all levels of obedience and behavior modification, having been trained and certified as a Professional Dog Trainer and years of training dogs and their owners. I learned how to ensure that the training and pace you are working at are psychologically sound for the dog, how to understand the psychology behind their behaviors and actions, and how to effectively train them and their owners.

I have worked with hundreds of dogs, all different breeds, personalities, ages, and temperaments.

If it’s an issue, I’ve dealt with it.

I’ve lived in upstate South Carolina, New York City, Phoenix, AZ, New Mexico, and Northeast PA.  I reside in Honesdale, PA with my husband, Matthew and our four dogs, Ray, Ty, Lana, & Cornbread.
