About Me
First Name: 
Last Name: 

Helen Dohrmann owns Training You With Your Dog, located in Redmond, WA. Living in Redmond, WA, she is positioned to easily give private lessons in the following communities: Redmond, Bellevue, Sammamish, Mercer Island, Kirkland, and Issaquah. Being a full-time trainer, she can meet you during the day if you're a stay-at-home parent, student, or entrepreneur working from home. Evening appointments are also available. Her goal is to help family train their pet in a positive, no-force manner using clicker training, targeting, shaping, and capturing. She has a strong interest in behavior modification. She also evaluates dogs for adoption for your family.


Helen has been training most of her life—from the family horses under her grandfather's watchful eye (he was positive back in the day!), to training dance and performance, to training dogs and their owners since 2004. Her introduction to clicker training came in 2000, when she attended a seminar in Vernon, BC, with Sue Ailsby. Helen was hooked, and found Helix Fairweather in Oregon to train with. She's never looked back!

Helen loves helping families train their dogs and see improvement with positive methods. She also enjoys watching teams that trained with her in the rally and obedience rings. Papillon is Helen’s breed of choice. She breeds infrequently and shows occasionally in conformation, but her passion is teaching dogs to learn and teaching families how to teach their dog.
