About Carmen Williams

image Carmen Williams has over 40 years experience in dog training and rescue. Her training method of choice is positive reinforcement.

Carmen earned counseling certification from the San Francisco SPCA, and she is a certified AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Evaluator. She has been trained in dog first aid by the American Red Cross. She is currently working as a Mentor/Trainer for the Animal Behavior College helping to shape the next generation of positive dog trainers.

As a long time dog lover and trainer, Carmen's vision was to open a training facility that would be friendly and stimulating to the canine set. The nature trail and off-leash area are safe places where dogs can enjoy a sense of freedom and excitement with their human companions. The many windows in the training room give the dogs and humans a view of the natural setting outside and a less enclosed feeling.

Carmen moved from California to Washington in 2002 to open Sunny Lane Canine Academy, Sedro Woolley, located in Skagit County. In California she ran a business named Delta Home and Pet Services for 5 years. She lives on the Sunny Lane property with her 2 dogs, Lobo and Laura, 4 kitties: MiMi, Mini, Midnight and the very spoiled Willy the Woo-Woo who is 17 years old.
