A School for Dog Trainers & Their Dogs!

Dog Training Courses

We train family pets as well as working dogs. If the dog is to truly be man’s best friend, then dog and man must have a relationship through reliable obedience and performance. Much of what is seen on TV and the internet adds to the confusion and misinformation about a stable relationship between man and canine. We’re here to help!

We’re sure to have something for just about everyone interested in dog training. We offer dog-related seminars for pet owners or professionals who want to know more about their dog/s.

We have some exciting options in dog training. Our trainers are certified in their field/s of study; specialists, not backyard hobbyists.

Each dog is given individual attention and each client is given sufficient time to get their questions answered. A trainer willing to spend time with the client is a rare jewel, indeed.

Why Choose Conifer Canine for your Dog Training?


We have trained many breeds of dogs since beginning in 1992 and have bred/trained German Shepherds since then as well. For a dog to be a well-rounded member of the family, quality dog training and proper socialization is a must. Our experience with many different types of dogs in several different training venues has given us a solid training strategy and the skills necessary to accomplish training goals. All of our trainers are certified by quality dog trainer schools (some by our own Dog Trainer College), ranging from obedience trainer to Master Trainer!


Our interest in working dogs evolved from a desire for security but also wanting a partnership with a dog that has a demanding job to do. The basset hound lazily lying on the front porch has its attraction, no doubt. However, our passion is working side by side with a dog that is properly and knowledgeably trained and seeing him perform his assignment to his maximum potential! Nothing compares with working a dog that possesses a stable temperament, steady nerves, and an overwhelming desire to work for his/her human. Our dogs are more than pets, more than “stock;” they are family.


Conifer Canine has a beautiful location near Spencer, Indiana – within easy driving distance of Indianapolis, Terre Haute, Martinsville and Bloomington, and beyond. We can easily service Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky. Due to the professional quality and the variety of services we offer, many clients travel from even farther distances. Our wooded acreage is conducive to raising sound working prospects and training dependable dogs.
