Welcome to A & S Dog Training! A & S stands for Art and Science, as effective dog training is both. I offer basic, intermediate, and advanced obedience training and behavioral modification using ethical, minimally aversive, and scientifically backed methods.  I am a good standing member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers and carry professional insurance. In addition to training, I provide dog walking, pet and house-sitting services. I pride myself on being an ethical, affordable and reliable dog trainer in Kerrville.

My name is Susan Hunter, and I am on a mission to help canines and their guardians throughout the Texas Hill Country. If you want a dog who:

  • Has good house manners (no rushing doors, no jumping on guests, no nuisance barking)

  • Walks politely on a leash 

  • Minds commands in distracting situations

  • Is able to settle nicely

  • Doesn't beg for your dinner

  • Defers to you in challenging situations

I can help you and your dog(s) achieve it! Because dogs are inherently social animals with a willingness to please humans, these goals are possible for the vast majority of our furry friends. The biggest hurdle pet guardians face in this process is learning how to effectively communicate their expectations to the dog. With a personalized training plan tailored to your individual dog and his/her needs, I can help you build a relationship founded on mutual respect and trust with your pet and bring out their full potential!

I serve residents in Kerrville Ingram, Medina, Hunt and Bandera. If you live outside of these areas, please contact me for availability.
