Debra Schneider

Deb Schneider

Since 1989 Deb has helped six of her dogs earn various titles, including Breed Champion, Companion Dog, Companion Dog Excellent, Utility, Rally (all levels), the Canine Good Citizen class and Therapy certifications.  In 1991, Deb and a partner opened “Top Dog Training Academy” in Hudson, WI.  In 1996, she left the partnership to open her own school in Woodbury, MN, AllBreed Obedience and Behavioral School for Dogs with her husband Michael.
Deb is very active in the world of dogs outside of training and behavioral work.  She gives her time generously to the various rescue groups in need of help.  She is a judge for the American Kennel club, judging obedience at the Novice and Open levels, as well as all levels for Rally.  She is a certified Canine Good Citizen evaluator and also judges all levels of obedience for ASCA (Australian Shepherd Club of America).  She lives with her three dogs, all of whom compete in various venues and are loved dearly!
Deb is a judge for the American Kennel Club, judging all levels of Obedience and Rally.
Michael has been at Debra’s side for 28 years and was drawn into the dog world without any complaints!  His background of nursing makes him the perfect “dog sitter” for his canine daycare program.   His experience in dog training, his five years of running a very successful boarding program, and dog walking has given him an in depth understanding of the canine mind, body and soul.  Truly Michael puts his whole heart into his canine daycare and the dogs respond in turn by trusting and respecting him as a friend.

Mary and her dogs love to dabble in all dog sports, including agility, rally, obedience, herding, disc dog and lure coursing. Mary has placed obedience titles on her deaf dog Gus, trained the 1997 American Boxer Club Working Dog of the Year, Jack, and recently placed a Herding Champion on her Border Collie Partner.
