Every pup is different and has its own personality.  I’ll work with yours to give them the specific guidance they need.


I'm Tessa Sternbach and I have been providing professional dog training services to Western North Carolina since 2014. I have an in-depth knowledge of canine learning and etymology, the science of behavior, and a passion for helping people and pups have a fun and peaceful life together. I believe in using best practice techniques, avoiding unnecessary aversive stimuli, and an open mind for continuous learning. 


Please give me a call with any questions or to set up an appointment. ~ Tessa
