About Us

Heather Cole became hooked on dog training when an exuberant, yet anxious pit bull named Poppy Rose came into her life. Once Poppy settled into home life, Heather quickly realized that Poppy was human and dog aggressive.  Heather loves to travel with her family, but sometimes taking Poppy wasn’t an option and couldn’t rely on a traditional boarding kennel to keep Poppy safe.

Luckily, a good friend, also a professional dog trainer, was able to watch her. Heather learned the value and need for a positive specialized boarding facility where dogs can feel safe and their humans are at ease. Heather became a Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner and opened her boarding facility in 2012, offering a low stress environment for the anxious, fearful, and senior dogs who wouldn’t do well in a busy facility.

Heather resides in Lee’s Summit, MO with her partner Phil, her two daughters Madeline and Cosima, and three dogs, Ernie, Copper and Scarlet.
