Dog training type
Board and train at a facility
Hornbaker Dog Training has changed my dog's life (and mine)! The training is top notch and clients can be assured that their dog will come back happier and better behaved after being with Stacie and Allison. I now feel confident to take Sadie places and know that she'll be well-behaved and happy. My friends and family have all commented on her improvements. Because of our work with Hornbaker Dog Training, Sadie able to be off leash! Stacie does a very comprehensive training following her work with your dog. She sends you home with thorough instructions and helps build your confidence as a dog handler. I couldn't be more pleased with Hornbaker Dog Training.Aug 26, 2016
Hornbaker Dog Training has been a big help for us and our dogs. They helped us train our first dog, who is 80 pounds and was a bit out of control at the time (and trained us to be better dog owners as well). The focus on balanced training and getting the dog to a good mental state was great. Our dog is now a very well behaved and calm dog. When we adopted our second dog, a Great Pyrenees, Hornbaker Dog Training helped us again so that we could integrate her with our family and our other dog. Our Pyr had issues with resource guarding, food aggression (with other dogs), and didn't have much training. Now she doesn't resource guard and will let us take even high value things from her if we give the command, she isn't food aggressive, and she's well behaved. She's also very good at coming when called, which is pretty amazing for a Pyr. In addition to training, we also bring our dogs for daycare. The socialization they get during daycare, along with the reinforcement of good behaviors, has really helped our dogs and they love being there.Aug 26, 2016
We saw immediate results! Our life became less stressful even after the first training session! The fact that they came to us, made it hassle free. Would highly recommend this business.Jan 8, 2018Verified

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I graduated from Virginia Tech in 2000 and then received a Masters degree. After many years of teaching, I decided to follow my love for animals and graduated from Animal Behavior College. Every year I continue to learn and perfect my craft by participating in seminars and shadow programs. Here are a few trainers I have worked with:Martin Deely, Cesar Millan, Heather Beck, Sean O'Shea, Jeff Gellman, Blake Rodriguez, Tyler Muto, Chad Mackin, Marc Goldberg and Ted Efthymiadis.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I grew up on a farm and worked with many types of livestock animals. I got my first dog shortly after graduating college and my second dog 5 years later. She was very fearful of many new things and so I worked with her to overcome these fears and she now helps me train other people's dogs. I would often help friends and family to train their dogs. Four years ago, I was asked if I wanted a pup who was found in a dumpster. She is the real reason I went into training as she was a resource guarder and did not get along with other dogs.
