Brianne decided to make the move to the Midwest to form a company that was built on her admiration of animals, passion for animal well-being, and the fulfillment she gets building a bond between an owner and their dog. Becoming a dog trainer and opening a Dog Training Facility and business in Kansas City has been an exciting adventure for Brianne. Kansas City is home to many highly qualified and skilled dog trainers and so it was an easy decision for Brianne to join such an elite industry. To not only bring her advanced skills of dog training and behavior analysis, but adding her extensive and specialized veterinary medical knowledge and skill has certainly raised the bar in dog training standards.

    My experience with Brianne was first class all the way. She was prompt, professional, and I could honestly tell she cared more about my comfort and my dogs success than just a paycheck. This is why I went with her vrs the other area trainers I interviewed. Yes I said interviewed, I'm tough to deal with and even harder to please. (I was also impressed with her extensive backround) My pup is about a year and a half old, he was a rescue and boy was he extremely difficult. We went with a 3 week customized boarding program. She brought him back for play dates once a week as well as accommodated my schedule. She sent pictures and video updates through out the process as well. (The pics and video was an awesome touch) She spent time teaching me and helping me work with my pup (Charlie), this made for a smooth transition. She came out the following week for another helpful training session, she also offered additional touch up training or I guess advanced training time if I wanted. I don't think we need it, he actually listens now. Having control and trusting him off leash was the biggest miracle that I honestly didn't see happening. But it did. Adopting him was extremely stressful because he was just a wild man, after 3 weeks with Brianne things are 100x better. Brianne I can't thank you enough. Charlie misses you.

    Brianne is delightful. It was a pleasure meeting her and we look forward to a wonderful experience choosing Brianne to train our new Gordon Setter puppy. She is a very confident, knowledgeable, experienced dog trainer. It is rare that I would give such a glowing review based on one meeting!

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Since 2001, when Brianne began her dog training career, Brianne Durham practiced her belief in continuing learning by studying with other accomplished canine professionals as well as attending workshops, seminars and other professional dog training academies.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Brianne grew up in the suburbs of Detroit. She spent her summers at the family cabin collecting frogs and chasing wildlife. Her interest in animals grew and she spent her summers during high school volunteering at the Michigan Humane Society. While attending college in northern Michigan she was head of adoptions at the local humane society. She completed an internship at a veterinary clinic and entered into Veterinary Technology. Attending a private college in Denver she obtained her degree in Veterinary Technology. She eventually advanced her way to opening and supervising a 24-hour Critical Care hospital in Las Vegas. While in Vegas she was given the opportunity to meet and work with some of the world's most renowned dog trainers and decided to become a dog trainer. Being a dog trainer was once a hobby, has now turned into an overwhelming passion. Helping people improve and strengthen the bond between them and their dog is a dream come true. Being a dog trainer and enjoying watching a family come together as they teach their dog new skills and tricks fills each day with satisfaction and pride.

Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Rosie was a very timid and scared standard poodle.... Did I mention she is beautiful? We because she is! Mom would take her to the groomer regularly, but Rosie disagreed that she needed to go. The groomer would tell how Rosie would snarl and growl while she was in the cage. Many employees at the groomer were concerned that Rosie was going to hurt them. She was so sweet, but so scared. Rosie completed 6 lessons and now loves to go to public stores like Home Depot, Petsmart, and even the groomer. Mom is so very excited about Rosie's new confidence!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
It is important that you as the dog owner, contact the right person for the needs of your dog and you. Some things to consider when looking of hiring a dog trainer are: Know what you want your dog to learn. Could be a combination of any of the following: a. Manners b. Socialization c. Athletic skills d. Tricks e. Attention f. Aggression management g. Or a magnitude of other possibilities Know what you are and are not comfortable with and hire a trainer that respects that. Not everyone is comfortable with choke chains, pinch collars, or electric collars. Some don't want a response from their dog only if they get a treat. Talk to your trainer and see if their recommendations are suitable. What is your budget and are your expectations realistic? Do you want your dog to learn in a class environment or a private setting? Be sure who you contact guarantees their training for the lifetime of your dog. Sit Now Stay Dog Training is committed to helping you build a trusting and rewarding relationship with your dog. We back that commitment with a lifelong guarantee of our training. Give us a call today or email us. We train puppies, the terrible twos, adolescents, and adult dogs.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Dog Training isn't easy. It's just the opposite. You have to be patient not only with the dog, but his owner as well. All the repetition can be exhausting. But I have been in the field of Veterinary Medicine since 2003. I have worked thousands and thousands of hours in the Emergency and Critical Care unit. Never, have I ever, had such a rewarding feeling for a job well done as I have with Dog Training. Bonding a human to their dog is one of the very best feelings you can ever experience.
