Instructors

Cora Harnish

Cora Harnish has been training dogs since the age of ten – her mom raised Labrador Retrievers so she grew up working dogs in obedience, field and show.  She earned two AKC Novice titles and a field title by the age of 12. She has since gone on to teach obedience classes for over 30 years including in-home private training for clients.  Her goal is to ensure communication between owner and dog and to give them the tools to continue training for a lifetime! Her classes will cover the basics such as walk on leash, sit, stay, come, down as well as ‘don’t jump on me’,  ‘leave that alone’ and ‘spit that out’. Cora is also an AKC certified Canine Good Citizen instructor.   She plans to incorporate some of those skills into the classes so owners can see what the requirements would be for CGC testing and eventually work with a Therapy Dog organization! She has trained and used her owned dogs in Therapy work and Search and Rescue.
