Elizabeth Headshot with Golden Retrievers - dog trainers near me



Hi, I am Elizabeth and I am the owner-operator of The Canine Ranch. I took over the business last year after spending 30 years as a marketing professional in corporate America. The combinations of marketing and the love of dogs makes this the perfect career for me! I am not new to The Ranch, I worked the kennel for the previous owner in between my corporate positions.

My love for training dogs began when I was a teenager with my first Golden Retriever. The love of playing a game built an undeniable bond which created my passion for training dogs. My first competitive dog Murphy came along in 1998. The plan was to compete in obedience but together we discovered agility and this opened to the world of dog sports and training. My dogs play multiple sports and have competed in agility, obedience, rally, tracking, dock diving and field. They have taught me so much that each is an individual and our relationship is key to our success.

Meeting and interacting with my clients is something I very much enjoy. I feel it's important to know you and your dogs and ensure my staff is providing the best care to keep and your dogs happy and having fun while staying with us here at The Ranch. You will often find me on property since I live here with my crazy Goldens: Harp, Killian, Beoir and Stout.
