The White Plains School of Animal Training, Inc. was founded in 1964.  Jeanne Gurnis, owner, joined the school in 1985 as an instructor.  She is an active member in an obedience club and has shown her Pembroke Welsh Corgi extensively at AKC obedience trials.  She has also been involved in AKC conformation showing as well as herding and agility competitions.  Her Schipperke and Corgi are active Therapy Dogs.


Whether your goal is a well mannered personal or family companion, or you're getting ready to show your dog, Jeanne and her well qualified staff will teach you how to enjoyably train your own dog.


Interested family members are encouraged to observe classes and help with the homework lessons for your dog.
