About OUR TRAINING CENTER

Optimum Dog began in 2004 and grew from Dietrich and Company Dog Obedience owned by Jennifer Schubeck. established in 1994. The need to help troubled dogs with specific aggression issues, many of which were from shelters or rescued has driven the goals of Dietrich and Company and now Optimum Dog.

 

In 2019, Optimum Dog relocated in Mount Vernon, WA to their current 3800 Square Foot indoor training space with plans to expand in 2022. We added an additional training floor in 2021 and office space. The training space continues to present the opportunity for expansion and thus Optimum Dog has grown to be a training hub for more trainers who bring their talents and expertise to the Optimum Dog site.

 

We will continue to add more dog activities to the puppy and dog training, Fido Fun and Fitness, Optimum Dog Stay and Train Programs, Nosework, Tracking, Rall-Obedience and Engagement Skills, Show Handling and Specialty Seminars. We have added Posh Puppies Mobile Groomers from Oak Harbor, who bring their services to the site on scheduled dates. Stay tuned for news on our exciting expanded services to bring you the best in training and dog activities as we grow.
