A Canine Experience, Inc. is pleased to be your full-service dog center, offering professional and caring help to owners and their pets. Our priority is the well-being of your dog and your family.

Since 1986, owner and founder Nancy Baer, co-author of "Leader of the Pack" and "Choosing a Dog," has worked full-time, training thousands of dogs and owners, giving her experience with all types of dog behavior problems. Nancy's expertise in the show ring has earned a number of titles in obedience, agility and conformation. Pioneering a unique project for well-known wineries has given her insight and expertise in training scent dogs.

A Canine Experience, Inc. opened its doors in 1995 as a dog trainer school when Nancy Baer realized there was a great need to educate people who wanted to become professional dog trainers. A Canine Experience, Inc. boarding and training facility was added in 2001.

Currently, A Canine Experience, Inc. is co-owned by Nancy's three daughters and granddaughter who have been training under her. Andrea Baer has over 15 years of training experience and Trina Eddy has over 20 years of training experience. Jessica Brill and Autumn Baer actively participate in the daily operations and are in the process of mastering their training skills.

We offer a specialized training program, which begins with a thorough evaluation of your dog's problems. We then carefully design a specific plan to suit you and your dog. We are experienced with all dog problems, from basic house manners to aggression issues.

    I took my puppy to training at A canine Experience and had a great time. We both learned how to get along and I learned how to train and behave around my best friend. I still count on them for advice when my dog is not quite perfect.

Question and answer

Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

A. Recently we worked with a dog to become a service dog for a boy with some behavior challenges. The dog needed to be well mannered enough to go into public places with the boy including attending school with him. We got the most wonderful compliment from the mother about what a great job we did and how much it has changed the boys life. They are able to take him places that were a challenge before and he has a new sense of confidence.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. Find out what the routine is. Make sure dogs have an outdoor place to go potty or it can interfere with house training. Take the time to go tour the kennel your leaving your pets at. Check that the facility is properly insured.
