What We Do




Randy Byrd

Professional Trainer and Founder of SMART Dog School. Randy believes that trainers from diverse backgrounds and educations can work together to provide the best training possible.

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.  

“We control consequences to change the probability of future behavior.  Thats the SMART Way.”

SMART Dog School focuses on acquiring 3 training abilities which are achievable through 3 educational program formats.

Training: (Encompassing ALL obedience behaviors)

  1. Restraint (Ability to behave politely on leash)
  2. Recall (Ability to come when called every time)
  3. Relax (Ability to stay calm in all environments)

We are here to help you get the “Perfect Dog” for your family.  We are looking forward to working with you and your furry friend.
