Meet the  TNT Trainers

The TNT Training Center opened  in 1998! Owner, Janice Gunn is the main stay behind the training class structure. She has been training dogs for 45  years , but it’s not only her longevity in the world of dogs that has given her, her expertise. Janice has attended training seminars with some of the World’s best  dog trainers. The list includes, multiple seminars with Ian Dunbar, Terry Ryan, John Rodgerson, Truid Ruugas, Patricia McConnell, Jean Donaldson, Leslie Neilson, Ken Rameriz, Michelle Pouliot, Nichol Wilde, Brenda Aloff & Sue Sternberg just to name a few! There are many others as well. Janice has also attended APDT and 6 Clicker Expo  conferences these are the best of the best.

Janice has earned titles in many different venues, actually proving that she can train a dog, AND that her training follows through in competition where dogs exhibit stress and anxiety and often have a difficult time performing at their best. There is a fine balance in dog training when using food to train. Dogs learn very quickly in the presence of food, but when the treats are gone, only a properly trained dog will perform in the ring. And this requires a skilled trainer, one that understands how to find the balance between using food rewards, and yet still “teaching” the dog how to perform without food.

This is why TNT is so unique, Janice and her instructors actually DO compete with their own dogs and earn titles. They are not afraid to put themselves on display and show the world that they really do know how to train a dog. Janice herself has earned titles to the highest levels. This includes titles in conformation, agility, tracking, field trials, hunt tests and competition obedience.

We are confident that you can build a lasting relationship with your dog to diminish behavioral problems and expensive bills due to idle destruction or the uncooperative grooming or vet client. Decrease the stress of pet ownership and enhance your quality of life with your canine. We will teach you the skills for a healthy lifelong bond with your dog!
