Meet Your Trainer

Hello and welcome to Lil' Bully Training! My name is Cierra. I am a passionate animal advocate who specializes in dog behavior, training, and care. My certifications and titles include CPDT-KA, CCFC, and AKC CGC Evaluator.  Beyond training, I have experience raising many of my own dogs, managing dog kennels and fostering/volunteering for local rescues. Since I was a young girl, I dreamed of working with animals as a career. It is my honor to turn that dream into a reality by helping people like yourself promote an overall happier community of canines and handlers.


My approach to training is positive with an emphasis on relationship building, confidence building and proper socialization to lessen the likelihood of hardships later on. I have experience with a wide range of breeds and temperaments including the perfect, happy puppy to fearful and aggressive adult dogs, so no matter what you're looking for, you are still in the right spot. My mission is to always continue learning and spreading awareness about how powerful positive, science based dog training is to achieve your desired results. 

The name Lil' Bully came from awareness of the two most commonly judged breeds. Toy and bully breeds are most likely to be overlooked at shelters and given up due to harsh stigma. Through my training programs, I will continue supporting local organizations making strides to bettering the lives of all animals who are less fortunate.
