WHAT PEOPLE SAY
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.
Totally recommend him and worth every penny. Our lab has made huge progress with his behavior and manners!
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.

With proper training, cow dogs exhibit the ability to track and find cattle, herd them with precise control, and move the cattle where desired.

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.
