I joined the military in early 2015. I had planned to make a career out of the service but life had other plans. In 2017 I was injured in a helicopter accident and later that year was medically retired from the service. It was clear I had to shift fire and find a new purpose. I have always been keen to work with dogs and have had experience doing so on and off throughout life. In 2018 I discovered this company and jumped at the chance to start working with and training dogs as a profession. I currently service the Marble Falls area but go just about anywhere in Central Texas to provide quality training.

Meet the Trainers


Jeannette Noble

As a child I always loved working with dogs, when I was 11 we got my first dog and the first dog I ever trained. He was a bit of a trouble maker, but he became a great dog with my guidance and training. When I was a teenager I started volunteering at the local animal shelters to help their dogs as well. This is when I discovered my second dog, Cassie and adopted in 2012. She was a challenge, she had all the classic behavioral issues of an untrained dog. Table surfing and door bolting to name a couple. I went to work helping her to use her “smarts” for good instead of evil and found that agility was her super power. She can now run an agility course like a pro, listens very well and is my demo dog today. Cassie is a perfect example of a dog that with the correct amount of attention, positive reinforcement and training will make her a wonderful dog. I currently service the Killeen, TX area but will go anywhere in Central Texas to help you and your dogs!

Dorothy Joy Clark

I’ve had dogs my whole life and trained every one of them to do the basic commands such sit, down, come, and heel. As I got older, I decided I was going to make a career out of dog training. That decision lead to me enrolling into animal behavior college. The online format allowed me to work at my own pace. I met Craig as my mentor and trainer at ABC and we’ve been working together ever since. I service the Coppers Cove area.
