Megan Esherick CPDT-KA CTDI


I am  a certified professional dog trainer with many years of experience in a  variety of dog sports.  I founded The Clever Hound LLC in 2016 after 17 years as a service dog trainer.

I have a bachelor’s degree in Small Animal Science and many years of experience training dogs and solving behavior problems using positive reinforcement.  I love working with non-traditonal breeds and helping handlers with all levels of experience to bring out the best in their dogs.

I’m certified through Do More with Your Dog as a Trick Dog Instructor and Canine Fitness Coach and am an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator. I am approved by the AKC to judge agility and Junior Showmanship.

I enjoy competing in a wide variety of dog sports with my Petit Basset Griffon Vendeens, Golden Retriever, and Australian Shepherd.
