I’m Whitney Tutor, CPDT-KA and I am excited to be a part of the Green Beagle Lodge team at Pittsboro!
I’ve been a professional dog trainer since 2019. I’ve been a group class assistant and instructor, worked in board and train, and done private lessons in client’s homes to help with manners, behavior issues and basic obedience. I not only have my dog training certification from CCPDT, but I also have a Masters of Arts in Teaching which gives me a great background to help communicate and teach clients the skills to train their own dogs.
I have three Siberian Huskies and I specialize in the breed. I’m active in both the state and national breed clubs. I’ve been competing with my dogs in AKC sports for about five years. Luna, Saga and Nanook all have various titles in Agility, Rally, Barn Hunt, Fast CAT and CAT as well as Canine Good Citizen and Tricks titles. I look forward to bringing the same dedication and sense of teamwork to developing training programs to meet you and your pets needs.

My name is James and here is a bit about me. In 2018 I enrolled in emergency medical technician (EMT) training with the end goal to become a paramedic. During this time, I needed a job for income in the meantime, so I began as a kennel assistant for a boarding and daycare facility in Carmel, Indiana. I enjoyed it so much that once my training was complete, I never went to work as an EMT but instead decided to advance my career with canines.
Since then, I have worked as a veterinary assistant, obedience dog trainer, gained experience in scent tracking, scent detection, puppy swim classes, canine dock diving, and dog agility. Most recently I worked as a trainer of medical alert service dogs for a non-profit organization in Indianapolis. I believe wholeheartedly in applying positive, science-based approaches to dog training in order to make training a fun and fear-free experience for both dogs and handlers.
I currently hold certification from the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT) as a Certified Professional Dog Trainer- Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA).
