Expand Your Dogs World!
I want to help dogs find balance mentally and physically. I want owners to learn calm leadership while their dogs learn to trust and follow their lead. I want to deepen the understanding and relationship between dogs and their owners.
About Dawn Clement
Dawn grew up in a home full of dogs. At a young age, she helped her mother show, breed, and train collies. She has a B.S. in Animal Science from Penn State and 2 years of Animal Nutrition graduate level at Virginia Tech.
Dawn spent 7 years working in a NC county shelter. During that time she became involved with fostering and rehabilitating for the shelter, and later German Shepherd Rescue, Neuse River Golden Retriever Rescue, and Peak Lab Rescue. She worked with large and small dogs that had behavioral and physical challenges and ailments.
After her work at the shelter, Dawn spent the next 2 years as a supervisor at a busy doggie day care. She worked to improve the social challenges inherent with putting large groups of dogs together (who have never met before) and having them get along and play together peacefully. While Dawn enjoyed meeting and getting to know all the pampered pooches, she felt the call to rehabilitate again.
Now she is on her own and using her own teaching methods that INCLUDES training the owners along side their dogs! Owners get to see their dogs (& their progress) as it happens! She is using her experience to help people balance their dogs’ behavior and energy in their own homes. Dawn loves to take dogs in public and teach them to relax and have manners.
Meet My Pack
During her shelter work, she built up a balanced pack of her own. Dawn has 5 dogs that range in age and are of various mixed breeds and sizes. For years, her pack has helped loads of rescue and shelter dogs achieve balance, home manners, and happiness. The older ones (Danny & Fallon) are steady and very good at teaching dog-on-dog manners and etiquette calmly. The others (Rascal, Trevor & Korra) welcome the energy of younger dogs and love to play with them! It takes a village, no?
