About Us


Our Training Methods

We teach dogs and puppies to prefer to listen because they learn how much fun it is!


There are many methods used in the world of dog training. We believe in modern dog training techniques that are approved by the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists (ACVB), the American Veterinarian Society of Animal Behavior (AVSAB). This is why we NEVER use force, fear, shock methods to control your dog. Instead we use todays scientifically approved methods of positive reinforcement and rewards based dog training techniques!

You can trust we have the knowledge! Not only do we have the hands on experience of training hundreds of dogs for over a decade, but we also love to invest in our education. We are both AbsoluteDOGS Pro Dog Trainer Certified, take many online dog training courses, and read many books! You can trust that we are always seeking to learn more about the best methods to use to help you and your dog succeed.


We teach not only all standard obedience cues, but we also use fun/engaging concept games to teach more natural self-control, relaxation, and focus to help condition dogs to make more favorable natural decisions!

The more consistent the humans are, the faster the dogs will learn. The more rewarding the humans are, the more the dogs will value listening. The more positive the humans are, the more fun the dogs will think listening is! We help our clients become better leaders/guardians of their dogs with consistency, rewards, and fun in mind.


Overall, we are here to help you build healthy and sustainable friendships with your furry friends that revolve around love and optimism! Is there anything better than that? 

Meet our Trainers


Anna is the head trainer and founder of Lucky Mutt Dog Training. She specializes in positive reinforcement training methods to shape dogs and puppies into canine good citizens.


Anna grew up with dogs her whole life. In 2014 she rescued her first dog of her own in 2014, and got heavily involved in the dog training and dog sports community. 


With her dogs, she loves to compete in disc dog (frisbee), agility, flyball, and dock diving. They also train in nose work and trick dog. They also perform frisbee dog halftime shows for tens of thousands of people every year! 


All the dogs are not only sport dogs though, they are pets and part of the family. So we also teach them calmness so that even in a house full of high energy dogs, we still relax.
