Bella Vista’s Class Instructors

Their seasoned experience, honed on many agility courses, at many trials and competitions, and after working with many puppies and family pets, will provide you and your dog with first-class knowledge and training expertise!  Every Bella Vista instructor is first and foremost a dog-lover, second a veteran student of Bella Vista Training Center, and third a competitor in various aspects of dog-sport activities.


Several of our trainers are also experienced in other specialty areas of dog activities, including flyball, earthdog, tracking, herding,
barn hunt, trick dog, and therapy dog activities.
