Unofficial Title: Sniffer of Things

Chris Howe is a local, experienced trainer who has worked with over 500 different dogs with issues ranging from red-line aggression, to extreme timidity, to super excitable and everything that goes with them. He has experience with a tremendous variety of breeds from Toy Chihuahuas to Bernese Mountain Dogs and has trained dogs as young as eight weeks and old as twelve years. He firmly believes you can teach an old dog new tricks, as long as you are patient with them.

Chris has a passion for teaching owners how to handle their animals in different situations and pushing them to see things from their dogs point of view. Originally from Molalla, Chris learned to train in Charlotte, NC before moving back here to start Charlo Training. Pulling from his extraordinarily varied background which includes positions in metal working, private security, and executive recruiting to name a few, Chris has a knack for taking complex concepts and making them relevant to the client in front of him. When not training dog families he enjoys taking his own dog to the taphouse, and playing the most complicated games he can get his hands on. Yes, he’s a nerd at heart!
