Meet our professional dog trainer in San Antonio, Susan Morilak, CPDT-KA!

Susan’s passion for training began at 9 years of age with her family dog, Buttons. Although her professional path took her in a different direction for a bit, for more than a decade now she has been training professionally, working with dogs at all levels and all temperaments. Susan trains from puppy and beginner levels through advanced and therapy dog. She joined the Barkaritaville Pet Resort team in San Antonio as a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) and a Canine Good Citizen (CGC) evaluator whose motto is “a tired dog is a good dog” which can be accomplished with positive reinforcement training and regular exercise.

Susan is also a Fear Free certified professional which means she helps prevent and alleviate fear, anxiety, and stress in dogs by inspiring and educating the people who care for them. Through her training, dogs can learn to accept grooming such as nail trims, ear cleaning, or teeth brushing. As a Fear Free certified professional she can help dogs with noise phobias or learn to relax during stressful times. In short, through positive re-enforcement and counter conditioning she can help to create a happier, healthier, fear free life for your dog. Personally, Susan and her dogs have participated in a variety of dog sports including Agility, Flyball, Barn Hunt, Rally, Obedience and Nosework. She has been a San Antonio resident since 1994 and has raised four rescue dogs.
