Cold Nose Companions Dog Training sees change in ownership – News-Herald


Cold Nose Companions Dog Training is sold by its founder Carol Peter de Chardon to Christine Good.

The Hartsgrove resident has worked for Cold Nose Companions for the past four years, according to a press release.

Cold nosed companions offers group lessons and private training for family dogs and their families. Coaches only use non-strength and reward-based training methods to ensure that training for the desired behaviors is stress-free and enjoyable for “both ends of the leash,” the release said.

Peter founded Cold Nose Companions in 2009 providing private training in a five-county area of ​​northeastern Ohio. The Cold Nose Companions Training Center in the canton of Hambden / Chardon opened in 2012.

Since its inception, the company has provided training services to more than 6,000 customers and their more than 7,000 dogs, the statement said.

As Peter focuses her training practice exclusively on separation anxiety, she will continue to consult Cold Nose Companions over the next several months to ensure a smooth transition.

“I couldn’t be happier to see Cold Nose Companions continue under Christine’s leadership,” Peter said in the statement. “Christine is uniquely qualified to build on this heritage to help more people and their dogs.”

Good immigrated to the United States in 2002 from Germany, where she earned the equivalent of a master’s degree in biology. In the United States, she began her career as an animal trainer at an animal center in 2004 with raccoons.

She is a licensed veterinary technician with over 15 years of experience in the veterinary field.

She became a Certified-Knowledge-Assessed Professional Dog Trainer in 2012.

“I am thrilled with this opportunity to bring all of my skills and passions to the table,” Good said in the statement. “I have a great team of talented, enthusiastic and compassionate trainers, and we will continue the success of the Cold Nose Companions that Carol has built. “
