Training for the Active dog  

Welcome to Black River Dog Training 

Unlocking the Active Dogs True Potential


We care about your Dog as much as you do

We offer obedience training and behavior modification using a balanced approach of proven training methods to help build a lasting relationship between you and your dog.

Our training programs are primarily private sessions so that we can tailor to the owner's goal and lifestyle. We cover what you want and need in our interactive training program. 

Our Vision is to provide all people and their pets with the opportunity to bond and form a trusting relationship that will last a lifetime.

Training & Beavior Modification

Having finished a internship with a professional dog trainer in the Puyallup area in February 2020 Cory has continued to work as their assistant through this summer. He is excited to now offer his services at his home in southern Thurston County.

Nutrition and Rehabilitation

BRDT is excited to have Cory's wife Dr Katy Miller, DVM, CVFT as onsite staff who offers her nutrition and rehabilitation services to our training clients.

Board and Train

Realizing that you are living with a very active dog that needs a job, but having a full-time job of your own, can be daunting to say the least. Our Board and Train program offers you the ability to get a solid foundation of training started that will follow up with weekly sessions to create the partner you’re looking for.

Pest Bird Control Service

Cory's dog training experience started over 8 years ago when he began training working terriers as a valuable tool for organic poison free pest abatement. He has grown his business from working terriers to also include hawks and falcons!
