AnnaBelle's lead trainer, Carol Hein-Creger, is the owner and director of the Canine Training Center, has trained professionally since 1979, and is a recognized master at her craft. Carol's training method focuses on operant conditioning and positive reinforcement and her philosophy is grounded in consistency, fairness, and building a relationship with your dog.

Dawn Archer Pizzoferrato, ABCDT, CNWI uses scientifically proven "clicker training" and "free shaping" to teach your dog all the basics plus other fun, useful behaviors. She uses operant conditioning and positive reinforcement, without correction, to help you and your dog build a bond of trust and respect. Dawn, a Certified K9 Nose Work® Instructor, also offers her popular Your Dog Nose Fun! series of K9 Nose Work® classes and TDI® (Therapy Dog International) classes.

Rita will bring over 25 years of experience in judging show dogs to help you prepare for the ring. She has judged at all breed shows and specialties all over the US as well as internationally. She knows what it takes to present a dog to its best advantage so that its strengths are made to shine and its weaknesses are minimized. Not only must an exhibitor know the best way to get his/her dog to work, but also one must know how a particular breed is to be presented.

Angie Falcsik, a nationally recognized Certified Nose Work Instructor®, Certified Obedience Trainer and owner of Pawsitive K-9 Obedience, offers a unique form of obedience training based on the dog's individual needs using positive reinforcement all while building a strong relationship between handler and dog, establishing guidance, structure as well as trust and respect. Angie also teaches K9 Nose Work® classes - where "your dog can be a dog!"

Karen initially started training and competing in formal obedience, but she has competed successfully in a wide variety of canine sports. Karen currently has 70 titles on 9 different dogs in Obedience, Rally Obedience, Agility, Weight Pull, Lure Coursing, Drafting, and Freestyle.
