About Us

Born from a deep-rooted love for dogs and a burning desire to make a difference in their lives, our journey began as trainers in a well-known big-box store. Yet, our passion and commitment took us beyond those confines. Frustrated by the one-size-fits-all approach and standardized protocols, we yearned for more – more understanding, more personalization, more possibilities.

With unwavering determination, we seized the opportunity to expand our horizons. We immersed ourselves in the world of dogs, learning from every wag, every challenge, and every breakthrough. We soaked up diverse training techniques and methods, growing with each encounter. 

And then, Dauntless Dogs was born – a sanctuary for both dogs and their devoted owners. A place where we could finally spread our wings, utilizing a rich variety of methods and tools, custom-fitted for every unique canine and their human counterpart.

Here at Dauntless Dogs, we celebrate individuality. We understand that every dog carries a unique personality, a distinct set of needs, and a different story. Our approach is as diverse as the dogs we work with – no cookie-cutter solutions, no rigid protocols. Just genuine connection, tailored training, and the unwavering belief that every dog is capable of brilliance.

Join us in this journey where every bark, every tail wag, and every progress marker fuels our passion. From frustrated beginnings to a blossoming haven, we are committed to transforming lives – one dog, one owner, and one joyful step at a time. Welcome to the world of Dauntless Dogs, where the extraordinary journey of companionship and growth awaits.

Hear It From Our Clients

"Dauntless Dogs has been a such a blessing. My dog Allen needed to work on his listening skills when there are distractions present, his anxiety and some other basic commands such as drop it and leave it. I did a ton of research before choosing to work with Dauntless Dogs, and I was a bit apprehensive about the use of a pinch collar but after getting to test the pinch collar on myself and learning that it was not a thing I would have to use forever I went with these very skilled group of trainers because their beginner class provided a higher standard of listening and communication for my dog than other groups I had looked into for a reasonable cost. Now I barely use my pinch collar unless we are working on a new skill. I'm so thankful I went with them because Dauntless Dogs was not only able to help me better communicate with Allen what we wanted from him but it boosted his confidence so much that he has no problem being left alone for short periods of time. Through the Dauntless Dog training classes Allen has learned to critical think and make smart decisions on his own when his anxiety is high, for example when he gets nervous he now goes away from the problem while before he had a tendency to continue to get more anxious and stay in the uncomfortable situation. One of the first things they mentioned was that dogs are similar to children, if you don't teach them how to handle different scenarios they can make poor decisions. Thanks to their help I feel confident that Allen is capable to make smarter decisions."

Nara & Lian

When researching the puppy breed I wanted, I knew I needed all the help I could get, as I have never owned a dog before, let alone the dog-cat, a Shiba Inu!
I knew that socialization would be absolutely essential, especially amidst the pandemic. Dauntless Dogs were one of the only trainers in the area who offered in person group classes, with reasonable group class prices; I cannot rave enough to my friends and family how amazing Casey and Angie are! I could immediately tell how well-versed they were in every dog they regularly see. They listen to any and every concern (even if it may seem trivial, don’t be afraid to ask!) and they always address/answer to you with an individualized approach depending on your dog/breed (even within a group class). They both have grown to love Nara and her sassy (yet a social butterfly) personality.
Nara started with Polite Puppy class at 12 weeks old, and we have completed the Beginner and Nosework classes soon after. She has also been attending daycare regularly and nearly jumps out of the car to greet Sammy at 7:30am!

I cannot recommend and accredit Dauntless Dogs enough for the tools and advice I have been given to raise my diva-princess dog! I really do believe that Nara’s personality was shaped as well-rounded dog due to Casey and Angie’s guidance!
