Where your good dog gets even better.

Birch Tree Obedience


About Me

I started out like many of you: By taking my dog (Ebey) to a beginner’s obedience class in 1974. Once I had a dog with some manners, I have never looked back! I trained my own dogs, attended seminars and workshops, and read books for more than 20 years before I began helping other people with their dogs. I have been teaching classes in Walla Walla for 22 years now—how time flies when you’re having fun! My goal is to develop the positive relationship between dog and owner so that your dog becomes a joy to own and a happy, respectful member of your family.
