WSOTC is delighted to welcome Connie Cleveland-Nolan back to the Northwest. Connie gives a two day theory/problem solving seminar. She will begin by discussing how dogs learn and then will work with the handlers and dogs attending. Connie’s problem solving can include preparing dog and handler to enter the ring, getting the most from your training time and the importance of proofing.

Connie is an international recognized dog trainer who offers specialized weekend training seminars to competitive dog trainers and instructors around the country and overseas. Her own experience includes 10 Obedience Trial Champions (OTCH), 2 Field Champions (FC), 4 Amateur Field Champions (AFC), a UDT Maltese and a CDX Shih-Tzu. Connie’s Golden, “Eli” and her Labrador, “Ezra” were the first retrievers to earn an obedience trial championship, a field championship and an Amateur field championship. Connie is also the owner of Dog Trainers Workshop, a full-service dog training and boarding facility near Geenville, SC. Dog Trainers Workshop features an array of classes, day and boarding schools, and private lessons for puppy owners, those starting out in obedience training, obedience competitors, and owners with problem dogs.

As important as Connie’s achievements in training her own dogs is her passion for teaching others. At Dog Trainers Workshop Connie teaches obedience to more than 100 students each week. She conducts several webinars a year and has developed digital training products addressing puppy training, ring preparation, proofing and tricks that transition to obedience exercises. She is the author of a DVD series, “How Dogs Learn, The Connie Cleveland Method” and a book entitled “Dogs Are Problem Solvers, Handlers Should Be”. She is a regular contributor to Front & Finish, The Golden Retriever News, and the Greenville Journal. For more information please visit
