Meet the Trainer

Hello! I am so happy you found your way to The Spry Farm and are taking the time to learn more about our dog training services. My name is Leanne Spry and I have been training dogs for over 10 years, and began offering professional training services in 2021. 

I grew up working with quarter horses, showing competitively on the AQHA performance circuits. I loved developing relationships with horses; relationships built on understanding, trust, and respect. All three aspects are crucial to having a safe and enjoyable relationship on the ground and atop a horse, as they are 1,000 + lb animals who can easily hurt you or worse. I take those same basic principles to my training of dogs and even though the primal instinct (dogs are predators; horses are prey) and motivation for each animal is different, interacting safely with both species requires the same foundation of understanding, trust, and respect.

I understand why dogs do the things they do. I understand how to effectively communicate with them to reinforce and/or change behavior. I understand how to guide dog owners to do the same. Dogs don’t come hard-wired knowing how to function in a human world so it is our job, as responsible dog owners, to learn and teach them how to live comfortably and safely with us. 

I genuinely just want to help owners connect with their dogs, so they can enjoy life with each other to the fullest.
