Bio coming Soon
Brittni Heywood is a certified Dog Trainer through the Victoria Stilwell Dog Training Academy. She was born and raised in Idaho where she currently lives with her husband and three dogs. She continues to educate herself by attending conferences featuring renowned speakers on several topics including behavior work, dog fitness and play group dynamics. She loves working out how to help dog owners help their furry family members.
Brittni offers a Fitness Foundation class to teach you to help strengthen your dog, prevent injuries, teach body awareness and boost their confidence.
A professional educator in my day job, I have been working and playing with all kinds of dogs for over a decade, and I train and compete in multiple companion dog events successfully with my own dogs.
I am an approved CGC Evaluator for the American Kennel Club and can provide training and testing for Puppy S.T.A.R., Canine Good Citizen, Community Canine (the Advanced CGC Title), Urban CGC and the AKC Trick Dog program.
I am an active member of the Idaho Capital City Kennel Club, the Lizard Butte Kennel Club, and Boise Agility Runners and Climbers (BARC), and I regularly volunteer with each of these organizations. I have held several board and officer positions with BARC. I frequently serve as Trial Chair for local AKC, USDAA and NADAC agility trials through these clubs. I have judged agility and obedience for 4-H youth across the Treasure Valley, and currently serve as the co-superintendent for the Canyon County Fair dog show.
I live with Shetland Sheepdogs, a small herding breed known for their lovable, loyal natures and their aptitude for numerous performance events. From the beginning, I have embraced training that focuses on positive reinforcement and reward-based methods that are mutually enjoyable for dogs and humans. I enjoy working to foster great communication, better understanding, and fantastic teamwork between dogs and their people!
