Southern Minnesota’s Dog Training Expert

For more than 18 years, Paws 4 Fun Dog Training has served Owatonna and surrounding Southern Minnesota communities, and is located conveniently at the corner of CR-2 (Old Hwy. 14) & CR-7 (39th Ave), close to I-35.  Open since 2011, our expanded, fully-matted 3000 sq. ft. air conditioned/heated dog training facility has the goal of providing both a superior customer experience and tremendous value to our clients. Dog Agility Training:  De-stress from life, exercise, and have fun with your dog. Dog Obedience Training:  We all like a dog who comes when called and behaves.  The dog sees it as quality time with positive rewards, both verbal and with treats.  An important relationship is built by training!

Unlike other dog training environments, our classes are private — One-to-half hour personal classes with small steps which builds on success.  Dog agility obstacles are learned gradually, but run in sequences too.  Intermediate group dog obedience classes are also offered as interest increases and a list is formed.

Your trainer is Susan Bernhart, Southern Minnesota’s most experienced and undisputed go-to expert in all things dog obedience and agility.  For more than 18 years she has been training dogs in obedience and agility at her own fully equipped,  fully-matted indoor dog training facilities in Owatonna. She is a sanctioned Certified Professional Dog Trainer- Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA) through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (ccpdt.org), which requires on-going training and education.  Susan has also competed in many regional as well as national agility competitions including three times at the prestigious US Invitational for Top-Five of Breed.  She trained one of her dogs to AKC’s agility “Top Dog” of breed and also was ranked #11 in 2011 in agility over all dogs in the entire United States.

In short, your dog will be in the hands of a fully certified, nationally recognized, award-winning and highly experienced professional who has trained all major breed categories listed by AKC.  She wants your training experience to exceed your expectations.
