Northern Grace Stables is Proud to Host a Clinic with 

Dog Training Professional Marvin Pierce on January 10th 2016

Marvin is considered one of the best in the business. Marvin has been able to develop well respected Cowdogs and is a recognized expert in the industry.  Having gained so much experience training dogs in private lessons, clinics, and the specialized Cowdog program, Marvin has become a sought after instructor for non-working dogs. His keen understanding of canine behaviors and instincts has enabled Marvin to quickly assess a dog’s specific behavioral problem.  http://www.marvinpiercedogteacher.com

The Clinic is 1 full day split into two sessions, morning and afternoon. Each session is similar, but if you have a single dog that stays for both, Marvin will tailor the second session so it is a progression in learning from the first session

  • 9:30 – 11:30 Morning Session
  • 12:30 – 2:30 Afternoon Session
