Our Trainer and Philosophy

Our primary goal at the Canine Campus location is to provide quality, caring dog training services to the community.  Whether your dog needs basic manners, has a complicated behavior issue, or just needs to expand its repertoire, our certified trainer can help!


Our trainer and co-owner, Terri Spencer, has been training dogs professionally for over 13 years, and has been working with dogs and learning about their behavior since she was a child. Terri is one of only

three trainers in the state of Kentucky who is certified by the National Association of Dog Obedience

Instructors (NADOI); the oldest and one of the most respected certifying organizations in the industry.


Terri is also an AKC approved Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Evaluator, a professional level member of the

International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP), and certified to evaluate therapy pets through Therapy Pets Unlimited (TPU). Her training style is best described as "positively balanced" as her emphasis is always on ensuring that the dog understands what is being asked and is set up for success. Dogs are taught primarily through the use of positive reinforcement, but specific techniques and tools may vary from one dog to the next. For every dog, Terri believes that training must consist of clarity, fairness, compassion, and consistency.

Need a little help at home? This package includes four lessons at our facility and a final lesson in your home. All customized, all one-on-one.

3-Week Training Camp: Starting at $1150

We have overhauled the typical "board and train" model to create a more intensive and owner-inclusive program! This three week program combines board and train with private lessons to not only teach your dog, but to ensure that we are also teaching YOU. Your dog gets to go home with you each weekend so you don't have to be apart for weeks at a time and can practice its new skills where they matter the most! Each week, you'll get a private lesson before taking your dog home for the weekend.
