Julie Dorsey

Julie and Dogs

In 1999 Julie Dorsey started out with her first dog, Keri, by taking both agility and obedience classes and quickly fell in love with dog training.  Since then, she has trained, titled, and competed at the highest levels and thoroughly enjoys it. She now teaches other people to love training their dogs as much as she does.

Her teaching style is all about having a good time with your dog and getting your dog to be anxious and eager to learn.  This is accomplished by using humane and positive methods which reward the dog for performing a certain behavior instead of correcting a dog for doing it wrong. This way the dog learns much easier and the bond that is created between the dog and handler is strengthened.

  • Member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT)
  • Judge for APDT Level One Rally Obedience

She loves and shares her life with two Dobermans, a Weimaraner, and a Yellow Lab.
