Pet facility adds dog training services

Posted on March 12, 2014 


A Whatcom County pet facility has begun offering a dog obedience training program.

Rover Stay Over, which opened in 2011 and is at 6451 Hannegan Road, has hired certified dog trainer Brittany Olin to help with the new training program. 

 “Training was part of our vision from the start – we were just waiting for the right time and the right person to join our team,” said Charmae Scheffer of Rover Stay Over in a news release.

The facility also offers pet sitting and grooming services for cats and dogs.

Olin uses positive reinforcement tactics including treats, clicker training, redirection, and lots of praise.

Raised in Whatcom County, Olin attended Bellingham Technical College and received her dog training certification through Animal Behavior College. Before starting at Rover, she worked as a kennel and veterinary assistant at local animal hospitals.
