OWNER & TRAINER TATIANA COREAS
Tatiana strives to teach owners canine psychology and breaks things down in a way that makes it where you don't have to do this for a living to understand what goes on in your dog's head. Our goal is to strengthen the bond between dogs and their owners especially in today's society where dog friendly cafes and patio restaurants are becoming the norm. We strive to make it were taking your dog with you to pet friendly places is enjoyable.
In 2019 I was given the opportunity to learn under the founder of this company Jonathan King. While I have always been involved in volunteering with rescues, I had a passion for dog training and while working on my bachelor's in psychology was given the opportunity to pursue dog training as a full-time career under Jonathan King. We worked together during COVID where many dogs suffered from separation anxiety due to being raised during a lockdown where socialization was not even possible for humans let alone our furry companions. He also worked with me on competition style obedience teaching me the fundamentals and now I am pursuing PSA as well as French Ring which are protection sports with my Giant Schnauzer Rowena. Since then, I have studied other trainers as well as stay up to date on new research in regard to dog training and what dogs as pets look like in today's society vs even 10 years ago.
I have worked with dogs big and small and have trained in rally as well as competition style obedience and have used many languages to teach dogs depending on the owners wants and needs.
TRAINER AMBER ALCALA
Owner and Handler of Dracarys
Since I was in high school, I have always had a passion for learning about dogs and how to train them. During the summers, I shadowed under a local vet and learned how to communicate with dogs more effectively. I started working with San Antonio Dog Training Co. in 2021 after meeting Tatiana and started my mentorship program under the original owner, Jonathan King, I knew that this was the perfect place for me. Together Tatiana and I continued to build our skills together working alongside Jonathan with dogs of all temperaments and sizes. From then on I developed a love for sport obedience, working with nervous dogs, and setting up puppies for success! Now as a professional dog trainer, I use all my knowledge and expertise to help dogs and their owners live harmoniously together. I look forward to helping you build a better bond with your dog!
Trainer Kourtney Vinnard
Owner and Handler of Drifter
I originally started my journey in Oregon in the veterinary field where I was going to veterinary technician school however it didn't take me long to realize that while I loved the animals it was not the field for me and that is when I got hired at Petsmart and was given the opportunity to become a dog trainer. That is where I discovered my passion! During that time, I learned that not all dogs can be trained the same and I began to dive into different training methods as well as educated myself in the world of balanced training, behavior modification, and dog sports. After some time I quit Petsmart and began taking clients which allowed me to truly see the difference and value in proper e-collar conditioning as well as the benefits in using tools correctly. When I came to Texas, I discovered other people who were in a sport called PSA and that is where I met Tatiana the owner of SADTC and after training our dogs together we decided to also begin working together professionally and that is how I became a trainer in this company!
