MILLTOWN, WI – It takes a special kind of person to be a dog trainer. In most cases these trainers must not only be able to understand the animal’s behavior, but also how to work with its owner to ensure the training sticks. In the process, many dog trainers build a bond with both the animal and its owner that will leave a lasting impact on both. Greatmats wishes to honor these trainers that make a positive influence on the lives of dogs, owners and their communities, which is why it created the National Dance Instructor of the Year Contest. This contest recognizes dog trainers with integrity, outstanding customer service and quality training methods. Dog trainers have been nominated for this award by their clients, peers and community members based on these traits, and six finalists have been named, representing four states, for the 2015 National Dog Trainer of the Year Award.

Your finalists are:
