About Heather Campbell
Arnicadia has an exciting announcement! To better serve the community, Heather Campbell is coming on board to offer classes on the Long Beach Peninsula.
Classes will be at the Grooming Garage in Ocean Park WA. Current schedule is Tuesdays and Thursdays. Private lessons available as well. Many of you know Heather from our current classes and from Purly Shell Fiber Arts her primary business.
Heather has been showing and training dogs for almost 30 years. She’s titled multiple dogs, in many different breeds including several ‘non traditional’ performance breeds. She primarily shows AKC with titles in Obedience, Rally, & Conformation. Heather has done rescue, and behavioral work and modifications through her own programs and others.
Through the years she’s developed a unique training style that is practical, and fun for both humans and dogs. The emphasis is on play, and creating a dog who is an engaged partner in every part of life. She utilizes all 4 quadrants of training, to teach solid foundational work eliminating frustration for both dogs and people. Heather believes each dog and handler team is an individual with focused needs. Some need clicker training, some need fair corrections, and every dog and handler moves through training at their own pace.
Her dogs work in public every day, and much of her training is on the companion part of training, with the goal of creating quiet, socialized dogs who are reliable and welcome anywhere they go. She currently offers puppy, and basic classes focusing on fun, socializing and engagement through play training. Private lessons are also available.
Heather lives on a hobby farm in Long Beach WA, where she also operates a brick and mortar yarn shop. She currently has Jack, a multi titled Great Pyrenees, Aria a Shetland Sheepdog, and Sully, Finnegan and Ramses 3 very spoiled miniature poodles.
