Professional dog training and problem solving specialist in bigger working breeds
Bouvier des Nevada
A lifetime of experience and very professional. I traveled across the country to train with Carla several times. It is well worth it.
I’ve taken my dogs for basic obedience and not only are they better dogs but I am a better handler!! Thank you Carla!!
Carla is amazing!
We have been with Carla for almost a year and have learned something new at every one of the lesson we have attended. We knew we needed a trainer and we wanted more than sit and stay. I also want a one on one experience so I can ask questions and understand why I am doing what she asks of us. We knew Carla was the trainer for us after our first lesson with her! Her knowledge and experience with dogs is extensive. Some of the explanations that have stuck with me are: Why do you want to start training as early as possible? Why you don’t want to use a metal crate for a dog? Why it is important to practice with your pets at home and throughout the week? I 100% recommend Carla to anyone who has a dog, puppy, are thinking about getting a puppy, or even if you are just trying to find a breed for you and your family or a particular breeder. Thank you again Carla’s Perfect Obedience Training for all the confidence you have instilled in me through each lesson and all your suggestions! More...

I have known Carla and Fred for many years. They provided excellent training for my German Shepherd and my Belgian Malinois dogs, as well as provided me - a brand new handler - with the training necessary to earned a SchH III, and an IPO3. Some of the best times I have had were on the field with Carla and Fred! Cannot recommend them enough! More...
Awesome training facility! Fred and Carla are the best.

Carla loves dogs. They get her and she gets them...BIG TIME. The fantastic results of a true and happy working team are thrilling!
Carla did wonders for my dog Barnabas! He is so well behaved. You have to trust in the system she has. He can go out now and be around dogs and people. He comes, heels, and does exactly what I say. He is so well behaved and Carla is fair in her training prices. I just love her! I highly highly recommend her. More...
Great for all breeds. Karla is very straight forward and counts on you to do the work every day. She trains the owner more than the dog and that's how it should be! My family has trained our sheppard with her and is in the process of training out golden retriever puppy there as well. He is only 4 months old and is more behaved than most adult dogs. She holds you accountable but if you are willing to do the work you will get what you need! More...
Carla definitely knows her stuff with the working dogs. She uses patience and and experience to bring your dog along at the proper pace. I highly recommend
Not every trainer understands the Bouvier mind. Great to have this experienced resource.
I trained my 3-yr old German Shepherd with Carla and he got his BH (German Protection temperament test). He is so well socialized and well behaved that I get compliments all the time. I am now training my GSD puppy with her and am extremely pleased with his tracking, obedience and bite work. More...
Took my pitbull mix here as a last resort. She was dog aggressive and I couldn't take her on walks almost at all. Within the first 2 sessions, we could go on long walks without any trouble and I was able to help my dog get her energy out to focus training her in other areas of obedience. This training was a life saver.
Way better than any others out there. Carla knows her stuff!

Ms. Carla really understands dogs and how they think.
Excellent trainers. Very excited about the possibilities!
The BEST! I LOVE My Trainers...Carla and Fred are the best you can get!
We have known and trained with Carla and Fred for over 20 years. They have helped me title four Bouviers to a Schutzhund III level. They are not only great trainers, they are also great people More...
Carla and Fred are the best trainers I've ever met! They're sincere love for each dog they work with is what sets them apart for all the others. ONLY trainer I felt comfortable leaving my pup with while deployed!!! More...

I am a National level helper and trainer for a service dog organization and I owe it all to Carla and Fred. Under there mentorship I achieved many titles with my personal dogs and learned the skills that have allowed me to conduct seminars all over the country. Carla taught me many methods in sport obedience and behavior modification. She is well versed in many breeds and knows the intricacies to each breed. She not only knows how to get the handler to achieve the results they want but she can demonstrate everything that she says which is the true mark of a professional. I would recommend Carla and Fred to anyone who is serious about having an amazing obedience companion for competition or anyone who wants a well behaved family companion. They are more than mentors to me. They are my family and they are the best in the world. More...
Carla, the head trainer, is great. I have been to 10 lessons and it has completely transformed my dog, a 1 year old male German Shepherd. I plan to go back as soon as my work schedule clears up. It's difficult to go every weekend for the Schutzhund training being in the military. Their facility is great as well, 1 large field to work on obedience, agility, and protection. Plus have other fields to work on scent tracking, if that is something you interested in. They also have a nice clubhouse for you to use the restroom if need be. All in all, this is the place to go if your dog needs basic obedience training, you are interested in Schutzhund, or your dog has temperament issues. More...
Carla is wonderful!!!!
