About Me

North Country Dog Training specializes in positive reinforcement clicker training. We will not train your dog for you, but rather will teach you to teach your dog which sets you and your dog up for a lifetime of learning, without having to committ to a life time of classes. We create a fun, family-oriented, relaxed and safe atmosphere for you and your dog to learn and grow. We encourage family involvement as it helps build the human-animal bond and allows everyone to take part in positive learning. We keep our class sizes small so everyone gets plenty of time to practice skills, ask questions and get one on one attention while still in a group class setting. We make learning fun, join us to see the amazing things you and your dog are capable of!


Stephanie graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor's degree in Animal Science. After graduation, her passion for animals lead her to a job as a Veterinary Technician and a volunteer trainer for service dogs. Training a service dog opened her eyes to the wonderful world of training and all it has to offer and lead her to pursue her certification in dog training. She graduated from the Karen Pryor Academy and is now a KPA-Certified Training Partner. She founded North Country Dog Training with the goal of helping owners realize the potential of clicker training in their own dogs. She not only offers group classes and private consultations but also helps shelter dogs (and their new owners) acclimate to family life for a local rescue, which she is also the co-founder of.
