Meet Professional Dog Trainer Lynn Brearey​

My journey into the world of dogs began when I adopted a rescue Labrador Retriever 15 years ago. Witnessing the need for loving homes, I dove into volunteering at my local SPCA, igniting my passion for dog behavior. This led me to CATCH Canine Academy, where I discovered the wonders of positive reinforcement training.

Championing Education

My journey didn’t end at CATCH. I’m now a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) and a Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer (CSAT), devoted to aiding dogs and people in need.

Each Dog, a Unique Story

With years of experience, I’ve learned that dogs, like people, are one-of-a-kind. Unleashing their potential means understanding their quirks and passions – be it treats, playtime, or cuddles. By understanding what makes them tick, we shape great behaviors together. But it’s not just about your dog; it’s about empowering you to guide and support your dog in real-life situations.

My Training Approach

As a proud member of APDT and PPG, I adhere to force-free methods: “Informed by Science, Guided by Empathy, Governed by Ethics.”

Behind the Scenes

I live in Pennsylvania in the Upper Perkiomen area with my husband Dave and our three dogs, Freddy, Petey and Buddy. Since our kids are grown with families of their own, our pups are our Best Buddies, and the center of our lives. I bet your dog is the same to you.
