Bluegrass Dog Training was founded over 7 years ago by Arwen Price when she decided to start her own training business focused on helping students build better relationships with their dogs. Over the last 2 years, Bluegrass Dog Training has seen tremendous growth and has teamed up with carefully selected instructors who share Arwen's vision of a positive, helpful training space where people can learn, grow, and have fun with their dogs.
Each of our instructors bring years of experience working with dogs and a variety of specialties. More importantly, all of our instructors work as a team together and are able to rely on one another to provide the best possible help for our clients and their dogs.
