Meredith Harris, CBC

Trainer Meredith Harris joined the
Front Range K9 team after
completing our rigorous Dog Trainer
Apprenticeship program in 2018, and
is accepting clients and teaching
group and private classes.  We're
looking forward to her leading pack
walks and teaching polishing skills
and drills classes, as well as all levels
of our training programs.

Meredith's interest in dog training
stemmed from her other
canine-related profession of dog
walking & sitting.  She found that she
wanted to know more about dog
behavior to be able to better serve
the dogs she encounters in her daily
work, as well as her own dogs -
Alfred, a large mix breed pup, and
Kinsey, a 7 year old Yorkshire terrier,
and her newest addition, Nala, her
rescued Plotthound.

We're excited to have this great
trainer aboard!
