Valerie Anderson and Hilary Boyer are a mother/daughter team who have over 50 years combined experience in dog training for competition and companion. Our students compete successfully in obedience, rally, showmanship, conformation, and agility.  We also fix problem behaviors in companion dogs from anxiety to aggression, potty training to jumping on guests and children, and much more.

Whether you are looking to get your new puppy or dog off to the right start, fix a  problem, or compete with your dog, Overdale Kennel is the best training facility to meet your needs.

Why you should train with us:

  • Most importantly, what we do WORKS!  See our students for testimonials.
  • Overdale Kennel training classes are run by educators.  Most dog trainers do not know how to teach people.  Benefit from teaching by instructors who have years of experience working in education, including a BS in education from UW-Madison.
  • Our huge range of services guarantees that you will find a good fit for you and your dog.
  • Our beginner and puppy classes are instructed by an AKC STAR puppy instructor and AKC Canine Good Citizen evaluator.

Our philosophy: No two dogs are exactly the same. Our training methods reflect this idea. We customize our training to your dog. We use a combination of modifying undesirable behavior and reinforcing desirable behavior to achieve maximum results.
