About Virginia Dare, CTP

My dog training business was established in 1991, first in WI and then in VA. In 2015, I moved back to my hometown area of NY/CT, and am happy to be working with people and their pets here!


I enjoy teaching people as much as I do dogs, and am very attentive to your needs and goals for your pet....

Testimonials & Success Stories

Virginia is a true pro. We are impressed with her depth of

knowledge and the results she achieves. ​Look no further, hire her.   ~  Bill T., New Fairfield, CT

​Virginia is simply amazing. Our pup, Gracie, immediately responded to Virginia’s positive attitude and techniques. Gracie spent a week with Virginia and came back a different pup. She was both well trained and well socialized. Virginia has the ability to spot potential behavioral concerns and addresses them before they become major issues. I truly can’t recommend Virginia enough!
