Therese' Dog Training Story


Therese has been training dogs professionally since 2000. Prior to opening Dogs Unlimited in 2007, she was an animal actor trainer and wildlife rehabilitator.

She is a professional member of the International Association of Canine Professionals, and an evaluator for the American Kennel Club Star Puppy, Canine Good Citizen and Canine Good Citizen Advanced tests.

Our Philosophy

Therese believes that accountability from the human along with a calm energy is the key to receiving good behaviors from your dog.

Using food, treats, toys, and praise to encourage good behavior, along with constant repetition and then adding distractions and distance we will teach our dogs to be accountable for their good choices. The great thing about this approach – it works!

Dogs Unlimited

Committed to providing the most effective solutions to her clients dog training needs, Dogs Unlimited is well respected in the community and is referred by veterinarians and dog related businesses. Many dogs have been helped with their behavioral issues thanks to Therese. As an experienced teacher, Therese can guide you and your dog from puppy class through advanced obedience, trick classes, and therapy dog training.

Therese and Her Dogs

When not helping clients reach their goals with their canine companions, Therese enjoys teaming with her registered therapy dogs volunteering to visit with hospital patients and nursing homes. Therese worked with hospital administrators at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center to start a dog therapy program in 2007. The program flourished with the help of her beloved therapy dog, Spencer.

Currently three dogs share their lives with Therese and her husband. “Nikita” the Doberman, “Wyatt” the Bluetick Coonhound, and the always entertaining terrier mix “Little Man”.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is a Private Lesson prior to class needed?

A private lesson will help you and your dog know what is to be expected for the first group lesson. The private lesson is an hour long and we will discuss appropriate equipment, behaviors to practice prior to coming to class, and what is needed to have a successful first group class. We will also cover any problems you may be having with your dog.

Can I make up a class I miss?

Make up classes must be completed within the same session. You can attend a class that is offered on another day or evening.

Do I need Poop Bags?

YES, you need to bring poop bags with you. It is your responsibility when you are in public with your dog to clean up after them.

What should I wear?

Wear comfortable clothing for the weather, we will train indoors as well as outdoors . . . closed toe shoes/sandals are a must. NO flip flops.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to bring water bowls?

Not needed. We have water bowls inside and out, unless your dog is fussy about their own bowl, then bring a travel bowl with you.
