Roger and Helen Bortz

Greetings from the staff at Your Dog Trainer! Imagine a facility that has been owned by the same family for over 30 years. A facility where every employee has their own dog and has the opportunity to bring them to work daily. A facility where every dog will be loved and treated like our own. At Your Dog Trainer, a knowledgeable staff member is on-site 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 52 weeks a year. In addition to our boarding facilities, we also offer group training classes, private lessons (in-home or on-site), and full (in-kennel) obedience training. Our group classes meet three times weekly, private lessons are available six days a week, and our full training dogs, affectionately known around the kennel as “Bootcamp Dogs” are trained six days a week with client instruction along the way.


Kennel Manager – Cathy

Cathy has been a part of the team for about 8 years. She considers it part of her family. "The dogs here are my friends. I know them personally. I put their needs first."

How do they like their food? What is their favorite toy? Who do they like to play with? What kind of blanket do they like? These are the things that she thinks about while caring for your pet. "Keeping the dogs safe and happy during their stay is my priority."
