About Raleigh Dog Trainer Amy Griswold, Owner and Head Trainer at TAK9

Hi! Let me tell you a little about myself. I am a true Renaissance woman. I do web development and have a BA from UNC-CH. I have coached amateur boxing at the international level and even ran my own boxing gym. I grew up overseas as a military kid and had many great travel experiences before finally settling in Clayton, NC (just south of Raleigh). My current hobbies are horseback riding and competitive shooting. probably didn't come here to read about that stuff! Here's the scoop on my dog training experience:

​I am a member of The International Association of Canine Professionals and am fully licensed and insured. I have trained with world-renowned trainers Jeff Gellman of Solid K9 Training, Sean O'Shea of The Good Dog Training and Rehabilitation, and Victoria Smith of Take the Lead K9 Training. I attended Train the Trainers Launch Program, and I continue to educate myself at dog training seminars and clinics whenever possible. In addition, I am an authorized dealer for E-Collar Technologies.

​"Amy has been amazing working with our dog Lola. I really wanted to walk her but wasn't able to because she would pull or try to dart after other animals or people. And after a very short time working with Amy, I can now walk her peacefully along with my 3 year old and she doesn't pull. She obeys and she listens, and Amy has been wonderful in helping Lola become an even more enjoyable part of our family."
