Whether training for law enforcement, entertainment, protection, agility, obedience or companionship dog training plays an important role in the quality of life for both the animals and their humans. And it doesn't stop at training to make the world a better place. That's why dog enthusiasts from across the country have come together to nominate seven of the top dog trainers in the USA.
