Haley Byerly: Owner, Head Trainer
I graduated from Ball State University in 2011 with a degree in Business Administration. I then went to the National K-9 Learning Center in Columbus, Ohio where I became a certified professional trainer. After graduating, I officially founded Roots Canine Training Center, offering: Puppy Preschool, Obedience, and Behavior Modification. I work closely with the amazing staff at Smith Veterinary Hospital, servicing both their clients and clients from other veterinary clinics. Most of my free time involves my own dogs.
Lincoln: Border Collie - 3 years
He is a typical BC, extremely busy! He is a disc fetching champ and is always looking for a job! He has accomplished the highest level of on and off leash training. He has also dabbled in service work, tracking, and scent detection. I am constantly coming up with new tricks to keep his mind busy.
Lincoln specializes in extreme cases, helping with unsocialized and aggressive dogs.
Doberman Pinscher - 1 year
We've finally finished obedience training! He knows all of his commands both on and off leash; however, we are still proofing him around distractions. He has started soft mouth retrieval work, the foundation for everything advanced. He will eventually be my go-to demonstration dog.
Boyd is our Puppy Preschool cat. His job is to help puppies become well socialized with cats at a young age. He is a typical kitten with lots of energy. He loves playing with gentle dogs.
