Meet Your Instructor

My name is Adam Winston. I have helped dogs and their families for over a decade.

My broad work experience includes Animal Caretaker for the King County shelter. I was also the Senior Dog Trainer for the surrounding Seattle Petco district. This was all while attaining a professional certificate in animal behavior from the University of Washington.

I believe that each dog is a unique individual. My philosophies and protocols are rooted in fear-free and reward-based principles.

Adam is the only person I trust to board my precious pitbull. He helped me train her since she was a little puppy. She’ll see you soon!

I needed a boarding solution for my timid shepherd mix and was having trouble. Adam welcomed her into his home. He’s a lifesaver!
