Bluegrass Dog Training was founded over 6 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 year, 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.
