Braelyn Chapman - Dog Trainer

Braelyn is a true asset to both our training company, Specialty Dog Training, and our non-profit Shelter to Soldier. Her talent, passion and natural connection with dogs is a pleasure to witness and our clients (2-legged and 4-legged) agree! Braelyn loves working with SDT because she is able to help develop and nurture working and emotional bonds between people and their dogs in a mutually beneficial manner. Braelyn’s passion for training dogs evolved from a lifetime of experience with animals. From the age of 8, Braelyn began working with the San Diego Dog Obedience Club, and continued training with several local dog training companies through her teenage and young adulthood years. Her talent, knowledge and abilities expanded over the years and Braelyn is now recognized as a top notch dog trainer in our community. She has worked with and studied under Specialty Dog Training Founder & President, Graham Bloem, and continues to expand her impressive expertise in dog training through continued education and apprenticeship. Braelyn is committed to a constant journey of education in dog training and handling, learning new methods to train dogs and discovering ways that humans and animals develop lasting long term relationships with one another. She enjoys using her dog handling expertise to train dogs at an elite level in obedience, and also to help match specialty trained dogs with people who face challenges. She fulfills this passion for giving back through Specialty Dog Training’s non-profit organization, Shelter to Soldier.
