WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Nicole Case

We visited 3 other trainers in the metro area south of Portland and I knew right away Marvin Pierce was for our dog.

Board and train for 21 days was the best decision we made after being “owned” for 6 months by our little 7 pound puppy, Harry.

As a locally owned business in Sherwood OR, Marvin Pierce Dog Teacher actively partners with the Newberg Animal Shelter.

We currently adopt a dog once a month at no charge and give them the opportunity for tailor-made training with the goal of helping them find their fur-ever homes.

Many homes in Sherwood are filled with great dogs since we have begun partnering with Newberg Animal Shelter.

We now maintain a strong relationship with Newberg Veterinary Hospital and are recommended by them to work with all types of obedience and behavioral modifications for dogs. We are also groomer-recommended.

Experience

Marvin Pierce Dog Teacher has over 30 Years of Experience with obedience training for dogs. We are located in the Portland, Oregon area and our facility can be found in Sherwood, Oregon. Marvin Pierce developed his master level dog training skills by training the hardest working dogs – cow dogs. With proper training, cow dogs exhibit the ability to track and find cattle, herd them with precise control, and move the cattle where desired.

 

Because of the success and popularity of his program, Marvin has extended his expertise to family pets. Offering private lessons and group clinics, The Dog Teacher has been able to change the lives of dog owners by helping them develop and maintain an obedient dog. Contact Marvin Pierce today to schedule lessons or to find out about clinics in your area.

Our facility in Sherwood, Oregon is known best for it's off leash dog training experience.

The Marvin Pierce Dog Training facility gives owners the confidence to let their dogs play and train off leash with a pack in a safe and controlled environment.

Our facility has an indoor and outdoor dog training arena to further test their obedience level. These different environments were strategically developed overtime by Marvin's years of experience with training dogs.
