Amber Overwater, CPDT-KA

Behavior Specialist

Amber found her spark for dog training while working as a dog bather. When looking for a kinder way of doing nail trims, she found the world of positive training. Seeking more experience with dogs, she began working at doggy daycares while volunteering at rescues, and eventually applied for Karen Pryor Academy's Dog Trainer Professional program. After finishing the program she opened her own dog training business.

Her free time is mostly spent with her dogs – going to coursing and barn hunt practices, training new fun things, and falling behind on her agility and rally homework.
