SunSetter Dog Training

Let the Sun Set on Your Dog Training Frustrations

We strive to strengthen the bond between you and your dog through simple, effective, and efficient positive training techniques! Our mission is to aid you in the achievement of your training goals via personalized, one-on-one training sessions, board-and-train opportunities, and virtual support and resources.


Free Behavior and Training Consultations

Before any private lessons or board and trains, start with a free consultation! This opportunity allows you to meet with a trainer either in person or virtually. During this time, discuss the challenges you are facing, consider the behaviors you would like to teach and/or eliminate, and explore the ideas you have in mind. Using this information, we will solidify your training goals and create a plan for moving forward!

Private Lessons & Group Classes

After your free consultation, it’s time to get to work! At SunSetter, we offer both one-on-one instruction from the comfort of your home AND group courses! Each of our private lessons and group classes are one hour in length. Private lessons can be scheduled individually or in packages- we offer three, five, and ten lesson packages. Check out our 6-week Puppy Preschool class aimed at providing your puppy with their AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy title. We also offer a 4-week Basic Manners/AKC Canine Good Citizen™ (CGC) class.

Board & Train

Board & Train is an opportunity in which your dog can stay with one of our trainers in order to work towards the accomplishment of your training goals. While living with a trainer, your pup will complete multiple training sessions each day in a home environment optimized for success. A complimentary in-person private session will take place once your dog returns home.


Donna is absolutely wonderful to work with! Over the past few years, she has always been willing to lend a helping hand with my two pups. She really takes the time to get to know you, your dog, and the goals you hope to achieve. Whether it be reshaping a behavior or fine tuning obedience, she handles each dog with patience and positive energy.

I have worked with Donna for over 3 years and seen her work with dozens of dogs and countless dog behaviors, including working with my own dogs of opposite personalities and struggles. I have immense respect for her empathy, determination, knowledge of dog behavior, and passion for dogs and their people! She has invested countless hours in helping dog-human partnerships succeed in whatever their training goals are, and there is nobody I would trust more to work with my dogs!
