About Canine Obedience by Claire Silver
Canine Obedience by Claire Silver is owned and operated in Derby Line, VT. Other companies may offer similar services, but our services come with a personal touch. 

Claire Silver has over 30 years training and showing dogs.  She has achieved advanced obedience titles on multiple dogs in the United States (AKC) and Canada (UKC).  Originally, Claire began her career as a horseback riding instructor and trainer, showing horses and instructing students at a National and World Level.  Interested in horse training or boarding see the UpNorthStables.com website for more information.

After graduating from North Country High School, she received a Bachelor of Science degree from the renowned Equestrian Science College, William Woods in Fulton, Missouri and her Masters in Education from Rivier College in Nashua, New Hampshire.  Claire professes that she never regrets a moment of her college career as it prepared her to educate people on how to successfully train their dogs.

In 1997, she opened her dog training expertise to the general public.  Her hope was that local, affordable dog training and obedience instruction would be a proactive approach to establishing permanent loving homes for canines.  To date, Claire's graduates have gone on to compete in Agility and Obedience Trails, work as Therapy and Assistance Dogs, and achieve AKC awards as Canine Good Citizens.  Mostly, you can observe the graduates of Canine Obedience by Claire Silver enjoying a walk with their owners they are the happy dogs who are not pulling their owner's arms off!  Claire continues to work collaboratively with local animal shelters, veterinarians, boarding and grooming facilities and she even occasionally goes out on a cruelty call with the state and local authorities.
