About

Ruth Oneufer: Dog Trainer & Owner

I have spent many years doing precision training for competition and showing. That’s a great hobby and the titles and trophies feel amazing to win. But at this point in my life, what I really want is to be able to have my dogs around me as much as I can in my everyday life. I love that we can go on long walks without a leash, and that I can walk them so calmly we don’t even disturb wildlife.

I love learning about the newest technologies and the latest behavior theories. I understand that training styles change and I have changed as well. I’m constantly taking classes and seminars to better help others. There isn’t anything I’d rather do. Dogs die from behavior problems — there is no need.

I have a circle of “dog people” around me. Some are breeders and show in the conformation ring, some work with service dogs, some are into veterinary care. We help each other.

Now for the boring stuff:

I have been training dogs for three decades and am certified by the International School for Dog Trainers. I’m a member of the International Association of Canine Professionals. I have taught both individual and group classes. I have shown in obedience and rally and have done some agility. I spent a year learning how to train dogs for bomb and drug detection.

Unrelated to my dog resume, I spent the greater part of my working life in the newspaper industry as a page designer, editor and writer.

I want to always keep learning so I can be the best at helping dogs and their families. Sometimes that means giving up a Sunday to sit in a room full of dog nerds to get continuing education. ... See MoreSee Less
