Want your dog to behave better? We’re here to help! Let’s make your time with your furry friend awesome! 🐾🐶

Are you worried your dog is going to drag you down or break free from pulling so hard on the leash?

Are you embarrassed by your dog's lunging, and barking at other dogs or people?

Are you afraid your dog is going to hurt someone by jumping on them or playing too rough?

Train with us to transform both your life and your furry friend’s.

🐾 Let’s fetch those good vibes together! 🌟🐶

Here’s how training benefits both you and your furry friend:

Happy, Well-Behaved Dogs: Training helps your dog learn good manners, listen to you, and feel more confident. Imagine a dog that sits politely when guests arrive or walks calmly on a leash—training makes it possible!

Strong Bond: Training strengthens the bond between you and your dog. When you communicate clearly and teach them new skills, trust grows. Your dog becomes your loyal companion.

Safety First: Well-trained dogs are safer. They respond to commands like “come” or “stay,” which can prevent accidents or keep them out of trouble.

Stress Reduction: Imagine less barking, fewer chewed shoes, and no digging in the garden. Training reduces unwanted behaviors, making life less stressful for both of you.

Brain Workout: Dogs love mental challenges! Training exercises their brains, keeping them engaged and preventing boredom.

Ready to unlock your dog’s potential? Let’s embark on this exciting journey together! 🌟🐶

We found A Canine Experience while searching for someone to help with Diabetes Alert Dog Training for our puppy. This is such a great place! The trainers really know what they’re doing, they adapt well to different dogs and their needs and are so hands on and helpful. Trina has done an amazing job with our dog, she’s worked with her through behavioral concerns and has her well on her way to being a DAD dog. We’ve also gone to group classes with different trainers as well who were fantastic. Whatever type of dog training you need, check this place out first. It’s definitely worth it and you will see amazing results!

We've been getting incredible dog training results for frustrated dog owners since 1995, in the Pacific Northwest.

At A Canine Experience Inc., three generations of women run the show.
Nancy Baer founded ACE in 1995, kickstarting the dog training careers of her daughter, Andrea Kelley, and granddaughter, Autumn Baer. Trina Eddy, another daughter, began training dogs at 15, later merging her business with ACE. Jessica Brill, yet another daughter, joined full-time after years of part-time work. These ladies grew up caring for animals, honing their skills, and learning from the best—Nancy Baer. When Nancy retired in 2009, her legacy passed to her daughters and granddaughter, making ACE the go-to dog training business in Snohomish. Lauren Redford, the only non-family member, brings her respected skills to the team. Together, they’re all about improving dogs’ lives! 🐾❤️

We love A Canine Experience! Our dog first enrolled in their day training program, and eventually graduated to group training classes, and now participates in agility classes. Seeing her blossom into a well behaved, agile little girl has been a wonderful experience, and we couldn’t have done it without the awesome Canine Experience team! They are a wealth of knowledge not only in training, but overall wellness for dogs. We even changed our dog's diet thanks to their recommendation, which has allowed her to trim some excessive weight, have more energy, and maintain a shiny, healthy coat. Highly, highly recommend!

Well, our household is already running much smoother after this experience happened. Cooper gave them a run for the money BUT Cooper is on his way to a much nicer lifestyle thanks to the hard work A Canine Experience gave Cooper!!
