Our mission at Constellation Canine is to provide dog owners with the best options possible to set dogs up for success, developing them into stellar companions by unleashing their maximum potential through safe, effective, and humane methods.
At Constellation Canine, we do not condone the inhumane and incorrect method of Alpha Dominance Theory in dog training, but do believe in establishing clear communication, building confidence in both dog and owner, imploring good leadership skills, setting reasonable expectations, providing boundaries and structure, and administering timely and appropriate corrections to bring about the desired behavior in your pet.
Brittany Dunbeck is the owner and founder of Constellation Canine. Born and raised in Virginia, she has been an avid animal lover since before she could walk, and has been around dogs since she was born. She began taking an interest in training dogs as a child, and her passion grew as she got older. Her experiences have lead her to work with various breeds from different backgrounds- Labs & Goldens to German Shepherds, Aussies, Mutts, Bully Breeds, and Huskies- though she has a soft spot for rescues regardless of their breed.
Brittany currently has two Siberian Huskies, a Husky Mix, a White Swiss Shepherd, and is quite familiar with stubborn and independent breeds that are difficult to train as a result. Her experience with these personality types has both challenged and fine-tuned her dog training skill set to what it is today. Having the opportunity to train her own Service Dog gave her the final push she needed to pursue her dream of working with animals and helping their humans at the same time.
In addition to the dogs, she also has a cat, two horses, some chickens, a goose, some cows, sheep, rabbits, ducks, and a loving husband who supports her crazy, animal-loving heart and endeavors. Together, they are building their dream homestead. Brittany is also a United States Marine Corps disabled Veteran. She currently resides in Douglas County, Nevada.
Brittany is an Associate Member of the International Association of Canine Professionals and is currently undergoing their extensive multi-year certification process. She is Dog Trainer Foundation Certified through the IACP, and also Herm Sprenger Prong Collar Knowledged Assessed through the IACP and Herm Sprenger USA. Brittany is also an Associate Trick Dog Instructor through Do More With Your Dog!®. She is a working on becoming an AKC Certified Canine Good Citizen™ Evaluator which should be completed by Summer 2022. She has pursued knowledge through experience, courses, books, podcasts, and other educational means, and is always looking to continue her education to provide you and your dog the very best she has to offer.
If any Servicemember, Veteran, First Responder, or LEO would like assistance training their dog or Service Dog and does not know where to begin, please reach out for a free consultation; we'd be happy to help you and thank you deeply for your service and sacrifice.
