A week ago, Valor K9 Academy – Spokane celebrated its 7th Anniversary. That means seven years ago, I moved from Chattanooga to Spokane – where I knew nobody except Justin – to open yet another Valor location for dog training. I hit the ground running helping all the rescue groups in the area and business boomed!

While we’ve had our ups and downs at this location – with moving and firing trainers – we’re happy to be celebrating yet another anniversary. Running a business is hard. Running a business when you live in another state, even harder.

We had a good streak training dogs in Spokane for five solid years where I trained hundreds, if not a thousand, clients each year: 4-5 private lessons a day, 5-6 group classes each week, 3-4 board and trains at a time, tons of boarding dogs, open agility and open gym, drop-in group dog training classes, monthly pack walks, workshops and seminars. I’m so grateful for all the clients who started with me and have stuck with us over the years.

So if you’ve trained at Valor K9 Academy in Spokane, WA, thank you for your patronage. Your business means the world to us!

And to everyone else, thank you for your support!
