Megan Arey, CPDT-KA

Owner of Inspire K9's

Megan holds an Associates degree in Applied Animal Science from the University of New Hampshire. She has been in the dog sport world since she was 16 years old. Starting out in the AKC breed ring showing German Shorthair Pointers while working for professional show handlers. This is where she started seeing the dog sports available besides the breed ring. She started dabbling in Rally obedience, hunt tests, and agility with her GSP. After college she went on to be a dog groomer while still competing in many venues titling her GSP. While grooming she always worked with the fearful, and unconfident dogs that came into the shop to build up their confidence and tolerance for the grooming process. This sparked her interest in canine behavior. From there the rest is history. She made a career change and decided to work towards her dog trainer certification. Once she became certified she opened Inspire K-9's Training Center with a mission to show all students that after manners there are so many fun opportunities within the dog sport world for students and their pups. All why using a positive, force free method!
