Trudy Garvey, CPDT-KA

I started dog training approximately 10 years ago when I became on owner of a large breed puppy that I wanted to make sure would be a ‘good dog’. I got involved with training dogs for search and rescue (SAR) work in 2010 after adopting two more dogs that needed a job. These three amazing dogs showed me my true calling and passion of training dogs, leading me into a profession I truly enjoy. I started my own dog training business, Ruff World Training, LLC, in January 2017 with the goal of providing quality professional training for all aspects of a dog’s world. My professional qualifications include:

  • Certified Professional Dog Trainer – Knowledge Assessed
  • Certified Pet Tech Pet CPR and First Aid Instructor
  • Assistant Instructor for the International Bloodhound Training Institute
  • AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator
  • Certified K9 Handler with 2 dogs in both Trailing and Land HRD
