About Our Team
Suzanne Clothier has been working with animals professionally since 1977, with a deep background of experience that includes obedience, agility, puppy testing, breeding, Search and Rescue, conformation, instructing, kennel management and canine midwifery. She is well respected for her holistic Relationship Centered Training™ approach to dogs and the people that love them.
In May 1993, John Rice attended a dog training seminar taught by Suzanne Clothier in Naperville, Illinois. Little did he know that by enrolling his K-9 police dog, a Golden Retriever named Molson, in the seminar that he would ultimately end up having to explain who he was on an Internet Webpage, or that he would end up marrying the speaker or buy a farm in upstate NY or end up with an Umbrella Cockatoo who adores him! But then, life is funny that way.
