Meet Susan Parker, co-owner with Harry Parker, of Dynamic Dog Training/Services, LLC. in Warwick, RI.
I professionally train people to train their dogs with my well known, SCIENCE BASED POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT TRAINING methods of dog training. My style of training is fun and upbeat. During my classes, my clients, dog and human alike, play games while listening to music, and learn without even realizing it.
Our Mission Statement
The Little Rhodie Bully Breed Club is a 501(c)(3) non-profit Federal Tax Exempt organization dedicated to aiding shelter pit bulls in Rhode Island. We work hard on changing the current negative outlook of these dogs by providing educational workshops, training, and demonstrating with our dogs & shelter dogs how magnificent this breed really is. We promote and teach responsible dog ownership. We also perform public musical/educational shows across the country. We work with shelter pit bulls and train volunteers to train them to receive their AKC Canine Good Citizenship, which helps the dogs become more adoptable. We also train specific shelter dogs to become pet therapy dogs before they are adopted. We teach an inner city youth high school shelter pit bull program & only use positive reinforcement training with the dogs. We are dedicated and committed to: educating the general public, media, lawmakers, and others on the American Pit Bull Terriers and other bully breed type dogs. Our mission is to bring communities together through leadership, education, rescue of the breed, community involvement, and awareness.
Susan, with Harry and Callie, giving a speech on Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) at the Charlotte, North Carolina Amazing Pet Expo.
"Sue, I just wanted to say thanks so much for everything! Through the few months I've known you, not only have I learned A LOT about training my dog, but, I've also had tons of fun doing it! There's a time to be serious and a time to play and have fun. Dogs read our energy, so, if we're happy and having fun while training they're happy and also more willing to listen. I think you do a great job at switching off between the two. You and Harry definitely know your stuff so all these years have certainly paid off! Can't wait for Wednesdays walk and all the rest of the summer things to come! :) " -Christina
"Thank you for an amazing session of puppy training yesterday... Dakota was knocked out the rest of the night she was so tired! We have been consistently working hard on everything we learned, and she already likes her "place"! Can't wait for the next learning experience, thank you again :)" -Brittany C.
"Sue and Harry! It's been just over a week from your visit and I am so excited to say that in this short time I truly am seeing a difference in my babies! Everyday we practice, both have pretty much mastered "down"! And before each meal we spend time working on "sit", "down", "paw" and "kiss". Today we even started working on "stay" while there is a treat right in front of them.We practice nose work every day or every other day. No surprise to me, but Koda , my little fatty, is better than Beans. But Beans is doing very well also!
Last Wednesday I had my friends over and Beans did awesome! He did bark at one of them, but he also kept giving me signals that he was unsure of her and that he was trying to calm down. And of course I did what you guys told me to do and it worked! In less than 5 minutes, probably even close to 2 minutes he had calmed down! He spent the rest of the night bringing her his "babies"
I can't thank you guys enough! And once my other half gets home we definitely want to come to an agility class!!! Thank you so very much!!" -Nicole W.
"On Saturday Royce and I
completed our Canine Good Citizen course with Dynamic Dog Training. The course
was fun, educational and a great bonding experience with my shelter
pup. Thank you Susan Parker and Harry for everything." -Heather J.
"The students and instructors loved having you visit Pets and Vets this session! We are just getting ready to start our Spring session and I was wondering if you would able to come back as a speaker. Thanks." -Andrea, Program Instructor at Roger Williams Park Zoo
"Thanks so much to you, Melissa, Harry and of course Miss Vickie
for a wonderful evening! Parents and kids were all saying how great it
was! Thanks for having the photographer tag along too Can't wait to
see some of the pictures! I see you accepted my friend request on
facebook and already commented on our school. Should get me lots of
points with "school people" I think, haha! But that's not why
we do what we do, right? I'll spread the word about this Saturday on Channel 10. Also, there was a local reporter there. If there is
any newspaper coverage I'll make sure to tell you about it and make
copies. We really had fun making the bandannas and cards. Mostly we
had fun learning together! I'm sure you'll have visitors from our school.
I know of at least one family who is planning to visit as they had scheduled a
family vacation and were sorry to miss it! Please feel free to contact us
if ever you need us. I'll keep in touch via your facebook page.
Take care and again, my thanks!" - Diane W., Feb 14, 2013
"Lake got to make friends with two little kids the other day at PetCo.
The little girl was maybe 3 and she kept saying "doggy!! doggy!!"
Lake heard her got all excited like she just knew the little girl was talking
about her! She sat all pretty and looked up at me like "Please please can
the little girl come pet me?" I told the kids parents she was friendly and
they could pet her. She was such a good girl, sat the whole time no jumping and
just let them love on her. She was in doggy heaven lol. Thanks so much again
for the great training you gave us!!" -Chrissy B.
"Hi Sue, Thank you so much for coming yesterday! I can't tell you how much the girls enjoyed it. My girls couldn't stop talking about it, and the parents who got to watch some of it were very impressed, too! I'm attaching two pictures that are very cute. :-) Thanks for everything!" -Amy, Girl Scout Leader
From a student doing their Senior Project on Pet Therapy,
"Dear Ms. Parker:
I want to thank you for volunteering your time, support, and knowledge during the interview process. From this interview with you I have gained lots of knowledge about my topic. The knowledge that you provided me with will help me build a plan to train a dog to become CGC certified. The most useful answer to me was the answer to question number four. This answer is most useful to me because you gave me good ideas to start and finish my product. Ms. Parker you played a huge role on helping me develop my product. I want to thank you again for volunteering your time, support, and knowledge during the interview process." -Devin M.
"Hello all. My husband and I met a bunch of you at the RI pet expo last weekend. You all did a great job. Thanks so much for continuing to support this wonderful breed. We live in Rumford and are definitely looking to get more involved. Certainly hope we can start joining in some walks, and having our little pittie princess, Hannah, meet some great dogs and great people!" -Tracy H.
"We had such a great time!! Bailee and I loved the pet therapy course!" -Kimberly M.
"I loved the Pittie show at the Pet Expo in Providence yesterday, great job getting the message out there! Thank you for helping the Breed ♥ " -Furry Angels Transport

"Susan and Harry Parker are the most patient dog trainers I've ever met. My dog is a completely different dog than when I got her, and I attribute it all to the Parker's fun, innovative training techniques." -Amy L.
"If you want
training that is fun for you and your dog, easy to understand, taught by
someone who genuinely loves and cares for dogs of all kinds, very
effective, for an array of different needs , this is your best bet. You will
also be supporting a business that gives an incredible amount of time and love
to the community, the school kids, and the shelter dogs." Melissa 1/15/2013
Training made training fun for my dog and I. I've never seen anything like it
before." -David P.
"I recommend Sue
to everyone I meet who has a dog. She is the best! Even if you've been to
classes elsewhere, you will absolutely learn something valuable from her
training style." ~Christin
"Thank you so much Susan and Harry. Dynamic Dog Training was the best
choice we could have made for our dog Jasper. You will be seeing us again!" -Wendy W.
