What We Do


smart dog school behavior consultation services

Behavior Consultation

You just got a new family pet. You’re researching all the training options on the internet that are filled with dozens of conflicting methods and theories. This can clearly be a daunting task. Not to worry. Our trainers at SMART Dog School will meet with you one on one to help you develop a plan that will lead you and your new friend into many years of fun, happiness and enjoyment. Bring your dog and we will perform a temperament & tolerance test while introducing them to some simple leash and impulse control exercises. Most importantly, this is your chance to get answers to all of your dog training questions. We will share with you our professional experience and advice so that you become well informed when making your dog training decisions. Following our consultation, if you decide to enroll your dog into any of our programs, we will apply your consultation fee to your new program making this meeting completely free.


Smart Way UNLIMITED Group Classes

While traditional group classes follow a “cookie cutter” curriculum, SMART Way UNLIMITED presents an entire revolutionary approach to training your family pet. Instead of standing in the shadows with a demo dog and giving instructions to their students, our trainers will work your dog in front of the entire class addressing any behaviors that require immediate attention. We lead by example. After enrolling in the SMART Way UNLIMITED program, you will have opportunity to attend our group classes that take place on Tuesday & Thursday at 6pm as well as our Saturday class at 1pm. And the best part is, our Smart Way UNLIMITED program isn’t only for 6 weeks. It’s for 6 MONTHS! UNLIMITED visits, 3 days a week, for 6 months!


Smart Solutions Private Sessions

Does your dog have trouble concentrating? Are they easily distracted even in low distracting environments? Have you experienced leash reactivity or even aggression? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, our SMART Solutions program was designed specifically for you. Our trainers at SMART Dog School will work with you one on one to fix problems and help you reach your goals, so that you can enjoy your dog without stress and anxiety. Your first 3 sessions will take place at our professional training facility and your final 2 sessions will take place at your home. Following your private sessions, your training doesn’t stop there. Also included in the SMART Solutions program is access to our SMART Way UNLIMITED group classes for 6 months!

Smart Way Board & Train

When life consistently gets in the way of you achieving your goals with your family pet, our SMART Way Board & Train is the option for you. Dog training is a repetitive, time intensive process. Our trainers at SMART Dog School will take your dog and integrate them into their homes with their highly trained and balanced pack. Utilizing a 24/7 training approach, your dog will learn the value of structure, accountability, affection and play while also learning to come when called every time, behave on & off leash and be calm on command. There are 4 options to choose from depending on your level of expectations upon your dog’s graduation. All of these programs include UNLIMITED private sessions as well as UNLIMITED group lessons for LIFE! 1. SMART Way Foundation (1 week) $999 2. SMART Way UNLEASHED (2 week) $1999 3. SMART Way Behavior Modification (3 week) $2999 4. SMART Way Rehabilitation (5 week) $3999

Shelby Vannarsdall

Certified Trainer and Vet Tech. Shelby focuses on training that allows people to enjoy their dogs at home as well as behavior rehabilitation for dogs that have been deemed “untrainable”.


SMART Dog School was founded on the idea that trainers from all backgrounds could team up to provide the best in dog training solutions for our clients.  All of our trainers are full time and certified professionals with over decades worth of experience.

So what do we do?  That’s simple….  We specialize in solutions.  Clients never enter our door because their dog won’t sit.  They need our help because their dog is:

  • Biting them or guests
  • Pulling them on walks
  • Barking incessantly 
  • Digging up the yard
  • Jumping on everyone
  • Guarding food & toys
  • Refusing to come back
  • Uncontrollably excited

Our trainers at SMART Dog School have a proven track record of providing practical solutions to all of these challenging unwanted behaviors

S.M.A.R.T. is our acronym that stands for See Mark And Reward Training.  This continually reminds us to recognize good behaviors instead of taking them for granted.
