Meet the Trainer
Adrienne Liddle always loved animals, but never imagined she
would find her life passion in dog training. She was a classical
pianist and an English major in college, before joining the Army
in 2009 as a linguist and signals intelligence analyst.
After separating from the Army in 2014, she used her GI Bill to attend Starmark Academy and earned her accredited certificate as a Canine Training and Behavior Specialist. Since then, she has used her communication skills to help dog owners learn to love living with their dogs! "Dog training can be a very intimate thing. People let you into their homes and into their lives. And sometimes the changes that training requires can be hard," she says. "I love to be the support and encouragement while those changes take place, and I love to see the results in the home that comes with training!"
Adrienne is committed to her craft, and is a Professional Member of the International Association of Canine Professionals. She yearly attends schools, workshops and the annual IACP conference. In November 2019, she graduated the elite NePoPo Silver School, and plans to attend NePoPo Gold School in April 2020.
Adrienne has 4 dogs: Tucker, a lab/rottweiler cross; Wallace, a basset hound/black mouth cur cross; Dexter a cattle dog mix with so much personality, and a Belgian Malinois named Reveille, who makes sure everyone stays wide awake. Tucker is her long-term behavior modification project, but he also loves to work advanced obedience, tricks, and retriever work. Wallace loves scent detection and nosework, as well as obedience. Dexter is a great demo dog, and loves to help dogs with reactivity issues. Reveille will be Adrienne's foray in protection sports and bite work.
Adrienne would love to hear all about your dog, and your training goals!
