Christine Snelgrove
CEO & Owner

I’m Christine the owner, head trainer, and founder of Bauser’s Pet Training. 

I am a Certified Accredited Pet Trainer, Certified Trick Dog Instructor, and have my PetTech CPR & First AID Certificate of completion. 

I am an American Kennel Club (AKC) Canine Good Citizen (CGC) evaluator and instructor, a Professional with the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT), a Professional with the International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP), and a mentor for Animal Behavior College (ABC).  

As the owner, I have been involved with canines for many years.  I utilize various training modalities in my work with dogs of all ages and sizes while instructing owners too.  I am experienced in obedience at all levels, behavior, back yard agility, and tricks as well as working equally well with passive and aggressive dogs. Training is based on positive reinforcement using Least Intrusive and Minimally Aversive (LIMA) style training in group and private sessions”.

Hi.  I’m Cindy the co-owner, and Assistant Trainer of Bauser’s Pet Training. 

I have learned to train dogs, hands on, with Christine over the past 8 years in obedience at all levels, back yard agility, Rally-Obedience, and Tricks. 

I have my PetTech CPR & First AID Certificate of completion.  Cats are my first love and through that I have grown to love dogs just as well.  Cats need enrichment just as much as our canine friends.  Keep a look out for our Feline Training classes. 

I have learned a lot about animal learning theory and how to train dogs and cats using positive training methods.  The training is based on positive reinforcement using Least Intrusive and Minimally Aversive (LIMA) style training in group and private sessions.

My name is Nicole and I am certified through Animal Behavior College (ABC) as of August 2016 and it was the best birthday gift I could ever given myself! 

I got my start at a local dog training company in South Miami, and then formed  a company named, “Bark and Bond” which focused on positive reinforcement training. 

I gained most of my experience working with shelter dogs,  as I volunteered at both Miami Dade Animal Shelter and Paws4You Rescue down in Pinecrest, Fl.  During my time spent in the shelters, I learned a great deal about the importance of training and how it can prevent most dogs from ending up in the shelter and possibly avoiding euthanasia. My main focus is always helping humans to better understand dog communication and in turn, creating a lasting relationship between the two.

Hi my name is Diego.
I’m a professional dog walker and I started several years ago when taking care of my friends’ dogs while they traveled. One day, my friend who had a dog walking company asked me if I could help him and that’s when our fun walking journey began. I’ve had dogs my whole life, but I always knew there was so much to learn from the canine world.

Thankfully, I met Christine and her amazing team who are giving me the opportunity to become a dog trainer. I am learning and discovering so much about dogs and realizing I didn’t know as much as I thought.

I am very grateful to be part of the Bauser’s team.


The most effective dog training occurs when I help bring awareness to pet owners. In this way, owners can partner with me to continue training when not in a class or group setting. I enjoy helping pet owners to understand what their dogs are really communicating to them. Welcoming all breeds, I begin my training by making sure the pet owner(s) understand and can mimic what I am doing. I am trained in different methodologies of dog training and find positive reinforcement training is the most fun and beneficial way to train your dog to become a well-behaved family member. When using the main styles of training: shaping, luring, catching, chaining, mimicking, and molding behaviors, I find dogs do learn and love to learn. All dogs want to do is please their owners. Happily teaching multiple levels of dog training, I also provide individual private lessons depending upon your dogs needs. I will assess your dog and determine whether group or private training will be most beneficial for you and your dog. My goal is for you to be happy, with a happy well-behaved dog!
