About Elaine

I began my career in competitive obedience, and spent years working under the guidance of top dog trainers. Since starting The Grateful Dog in 1992, I've worked with virtually every breed and temperament, and understand thatElain Stern - The Grateful Dog - Elaine Stern - Training dogs for a lifetime each dog learns differently. My experience has taught me to combine proven techniques along with a personalized approach to meet the individual needs of owner and pet.

At The Grateful Dog, I combine my passion, talent and experience to train dogs and to help build relationships between dog and owner. To me, it's not just teaching dogs, it's about showing owners how to teach their dogs.

I am a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers and maintain a network with other top trainers allowing me to stay on top of best practices.

My commitment is to achieving rewarding results, while my goal is training dogs for a lifetime!
