Embrace the Serenity Difference

Comprehensive & Holistic Approach:

As a Certified Family Dog Mediator, I address behavioral issues while fostering trust, communication, and understanding between you and your dog.

Safe and Effective:

I prioritize training methods that are gentle, humane, and positive for all involved to ensure a stress-free and enjoyable training experience.

Tailored Solutions:

No two dogs are alike, and neither are their training needs. From leash pulling to unwanted behaviors, I offer personalized training programs designed to address your dog’s unique needs.

 Flexible Training Options:

Conveniently based in Two Harbors, offering both virtual and in-person training options to serve the needs of the community and beyond.

What an amazing difference Serenity dog training has made in our lives! Our high energy pup has calmed down so much since we began the program. Taking a positive reinforcement aproach to training has made all the difference in effectively training our dog. Before beginning this training we used a prong collar for walking our dog. With the tools we’ve learned from Serenity Dog training, we are able to walk without the prong collar (and remove all guilt on our part and pain on the dog’s part). With the tools fostered by Angela I am confident we will foster and maintain a much better relationship with our young pup.

I have a whole new way of looking at Gus’ training, finding ways to challenge him one or two steps ahead of what he already knows. Our classes helped us work through some of Gus’ behaviors in a way that we hadn’t thought of before. Angela is down to earth, easy to communicate with, answers a variety of questions with rationale, and keeps classes small.

We appreciated the basic foundational skills we learned with our puppy. Angela’s step by step instruction and dog psychology insights set us and our puppy up for success with basic behavior as well as with specific problems.

Angela did such a great job helping us train our puppy. Our 13 week old male Schnauzer, JimmyBeans, was, as expected, very rambunctious and distracted. However, Angela calmly talked us through each part of the training and with her guidance he followed every command and we felt very competent! Success! Thank you.

As a result of the training my dog is much calmer and more confident and more obedient. Before we were not able to travel with our dog or walk her in town – now I feel like I can take her anywhere – Also realizing how to use rewards are in training instead of just commands. She is a quieter more relaxed dog and I learned several techniques for handling her in challenging situations. My favorite part was one on one time every week which really helped both of us stay on task – and we liked the breaks at the big Lake. Angela is both motivated and creative she will find solutions to your problems.

Meet the Trainer

Dog training is an unregulated industry, as a result, there isn’t yet a formal path to becoming a professional dog trainer.

Learning all I can about positive reinforcement dog training has been my focus. After completing my bachelor’s degree in biology, I’ve continued to study professional sources, including completing my certification as a Family Dog Mediator, to increase my knowledge of dog behavior and keep current on best practices. Learn more here.

Whether it’s teaching manners or helping with behavior problems, I use rewards-based training as recommended by the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior. Rewards-based training is efficient, humane, and fun for both you and your dog.

How you train your dog matters. So, I choose kindness when working with dogs and their humans.

We love Angela at Serenity Dog Training. My dog just finished the Jedi puppy program and she has learned so much. Angela is very kind and great with dogs. My 7yo also joined in on some training sessions and Angela was great at including her in on the training and giving us personalized pointers.

We graduated puppy training last night. We learned a lot and had so much fun. If you are in the Two Harbors area, Angela has some new classes coming up. I recommend you and your dog take one.

Angela teaches the fundamentals on commands to where my dog understood them. I have learned a lot of the fundamentals of commands and how they work step by step. She is a great dog trainer and taught my dog and I a lot. Highly recommend!!!
