About Me

Whitney Spence, CPDT-KA

I have always had a love for animals. When I just started high school, my family decided to adopt a dog for the first time. This is when when adopted a Jack russel/Black Lab mix named, Hollywood. Very quickly we realized we needed help as she was very people and dog reactive. We found a trainer and it opened my eyes to the world of dog training. I began to research and once I found positive reinforcement training, I never went back. I now have a strong passion for working with reactivity and misunderstood dogs. Nothing makes me happier than being able to help owners understand and build a connection with their dogs. Our dogs are always talking to us and it is up to us to acknowledge and show them what they can do. I have a Border Collie mix, Kimchi, and a Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Soju, that love to perform tricks.

I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer- Knowledge Assessed, and an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator. I continue going to conferences and attending virtual lectures to continue growing in the ever evolving science-based training. 

At Sweet Potato Dog Training, my aim is to provide real solutions to the most common challenges that pet owners face. Through expert behavioral coaching and applying kind, approachable, and humane principles, I am here to help you.
