Hi Everyone,  My name is Chris Bevillard and I run Great Canines a Mount Airy and Frederick based dog training business. I am a certified trainer of 28 years. I use positive and reward based training methods.

You will never see any reference to dominance, or pack leader on my site or in my training.

My training is modern and I use the reward part of the science of training.

I do not advocate prong, choke or shock collars. I don't use pain, I teach with rewards. The classes are game based and we have great results.  https://www.facebook.com/GR8K9S

I like sharing information about the latest ideas for training our dogs. I can show you how to effectively train your dog to be well behaved and to have a great relationship with your dog. I am in the process of trying to find a place to meet, if any of you know of a place let me know and we'll get together soon. What are you interested in learning? Anything in particular? We can work on just about anything... I am looking forward to meeting everyone. Chris

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
