Chris Miara, MA, CDBC
Owner & Head Trainer
I have been training and showing dogs since 1984, earning multiple titles in AKC obedience, tracking, agility, and field. Dog training has changed a lot since I first started, and I regularly attend seminars to keep up with the latest research and training techniques.
I am a Behavior Specialist for dogs and people! I began teaching obedience classes and private behavior consulting in 2000. I am a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant with IAABC and there are only 2 of us in the state of KY. Additionally, I am a graduate of IAABC's Aggression in Dogs Mentorship with Michael Shikashio. In terms of human behavior, I held a license in Psychology at the Master's level and worked in the field for 30 years. I specialize in solving problems, and I will do the best I can to help solve the ones you have with your dog!
