Carey's Purpose: To create confident city dogs.

Mission: To enrich the quality of life for dogs and support their pet parents through all stages of development, from puppyhood through adolescence and maturity.


Vision: Effectively create, support, and implement a customized routine consisting of exercise, feeding, nutrition and obedience training using positive learning and clear communication both verbally and with body language.


Promise: We make safety and your pet's well-being our priority. If your pet is ill or injured in our care, we will contact you and seek medical attention for your pet and communicate with you.


We follow the five freedoms of animal welfare.

"Carey has been our dog trainer since our first puppy 5 years ago. She is one of the most honest, patient and caring trainers you could hope for.
We added another pup to our family, a rescue who had some anxiety and not a lot of good socialization, and Carey has always been incredibly helpful for the whole family.
Over the years I have referred dozens of people to Carey and every single person has the same amazing feedback."

At #CareyTrainsMe, our modern, progressive, positive reinforcement Board and Train Dog Program will set your puppy up for a successful life.

Board and Train Programs

Your Dog will receive at least four daily training sessions to meet your specified goals and consistently reinforce polite household manners.

What to Expect

Our facility is a home environment (small and inclusive), and not a boarding kennel. While enrolled in our Board and Train, your dog lives comfortably in our home.

Follow-Up Session

7-10 days after your puppy graduates from their board and train program, you will be scheduled for a Zoom session that your entire household are welcome to attend.
