Skye Poitras, owner and trainer of Skye's Dog Training, is a Certified Behavior Consultant - Canine (CBCC-KA) and also a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers.

Skye uses positive reinforcement training methods which utilize science-based methodology to reward behaviors. The most successful modern training theories suggest that positive reinforcement is the most effective way to train any species. Consistent rules and boundaries are also important for successful training and are incorporated in all of Skye's training programs.
Training and problem solving succeed when there is a mutual respect and understanding between people and their dogs. My training techniques are dog-friendly, humane and effective.
Skye Poitras is more than a dog trainer. Skye is a friend to every family; she supports each dog and its individual needs. Skye works with the family to create realistic training plans to follow by using reward-based motivational training.
We have had nothing but wonderful experiences with Skye. I had worked with 2 other "trainers" and my pup was becoming more and more confused and scared. Skye helped me to help Tango learn and grow and become such an amazing companion! Skye's positive approach to training is so refreshing! Each class contains just the right amount of information so you learn a lot, without being overwhelmed. Tango and I have taken nearly every single class Skye offers and our hard work had paid off. I love being able to take Tango to all of the pet friendly stores and events in the area knowing we will both enjoy our outing because of the lessons we learned from Skye!
First of all Skye is wonderful helping me learn how to train my first service dog and my dog is obsessed with her and has started to learn to leave her alone and sit before loves which is amazing for him to do around other people.
We loved Skye! So sweet and my baby felt right at ease with her. 10 out of 10 will recommend to anyone!
Skye is wonderful! She had made my dogs and I feel so comfortable during our behavior consultation. Not only did Skye listen to my concerns, but she had also empathized with them. She is very knowledgeable and was able to give me a fresh perspective on both my dogs behavior. Weeks before our consultation, my dogs had gotten into a serious fight. I did not believe they would be able to be in the same room together again. Skye came up with the most amazing training plan for both my dogs. The training plan has been so beneficial and has worked wonders for my pups! We have worked incredibly hard since to ensure that the needs of both my dogs are being met to keep our household calm and happy. My dogs since have not only been able to be around each other but are back to playing with each other as well! I cannot thank Skye enough for everything she had done for my family!
