Gwen Urie - Complete Dog Training Services in Englewood, Florida
Dog Training for People... and their dogs!
I have used Gwen to help with basic training for my energetic lab puppy: house training, crate training, jumping issues, puppy biting/chewing, leash pulling and beyond. Gwen has provided us with everyday training methods in an easy to understand manner. She has always been available to provide personal support throughout our training and has always been attentive to our individual needs. Her knowledge and training methods have exceeded my expectations. We have passed the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Test and are working towards the AKC Canine Good Citizen certification with hopes of working as a therapy dog in the near future. We are excited to join her agility training this fall to improve handling and to strengthen the bond between myself and my dog. I highly recommend Gwen Urie’s dog training.
Gwen is amazing! She turned my rapscallion of a dog into a well mannered fun loving dog. She listens to what you want out of this and works towards that goal. She also speaks dog and is able to explain a lot of things that you don’t understand about your canine companion. I would recommend her a thousand times over!

We were lucky to “win” Gwen in a school auction just before we got a new Springer Spaniel puppy — our first dog. She gave us tips over the phone and I could tell right away she was a true dog person. The day the puppy arrived at our house Gwen was at the door to offer much-needed practical advice and admire our new baby. We met with her several times and we just love her. Not only is she good with dogs, but she puts their owners at ease as well. I wanted to hire her as my personal psychologist and have her live with us for the duration of puppyhood! I like that Gwen is gentle and loving with our dog but also firm and practical. Some trainers these days are only about stuffing a dog with treats. Just as with kids, however, sometimes a little tough love is needed. It has to be tailored to the dog and the owners.
Gwen is the best! She worked for me for over 5 years where she honed her skills as a behaviorist. Together we raised tons of puppies, assessed hundreds of problem dogs and came up with plans for rehabilitation. I have trained several dog trainers but Gwen was the best. She was born to do this. She has a natural way with dogs and people. I trust her. She is a stand up person who can help you with your dog.
Gwen has trained and taken care of our King Charles Cavalier – Pixie, for the past 12 years. Pixie loves being with her especially when we are out of town. “Doggie Camp” is the best according to Pixie. We absolutely give Gwen the highest of ratings and wouldn’t use any one else for board, training and consultation.
Gwen is an excellent trainer! I was new to dogs and found myself with a completely untrained rescue mastiff. Needless to say I was a bit nervous and completely unsure how to go about training the dog. Gwen was great and really worked with us to come up with methods that worked for both me and the dog (the dog caught on quicker than I did). She is patient and helped me understand the techniques as well as the reasoning behind them. She loves dogs and it really shows in her training. I had such a great time working with her!
