It’s been a very satisfying on-going experience which will continue. I am very pleased with the process and results. I highly recommend Angels in the Making!"
"We believe in the human-animal bond. We love to work with all people and dogs, especially those dogs that struggle to live in a human world. Without training, these struggles can cause a rift in that bond. As a result of our work together, we will create teamwork and build a thriving relationship through fun and effective training, that is force free."
Who We Are
Angels in the Making is a positive reinforcement, force free, dog training organization offering group classes, private sessions, workshops and seminars and on-line courses on dog behavior and training.
We've been in Grand Junction, Colorado training dogs and their people since 2004. We are always learning and growing. Once a one person organization, Teri Thomas, founder and owner of Angels in the Making, added an administrative assistant in 2018, a part time trainer in 2019, and another in 2023. All trainers are certified through Absolute Dogs training, a game based, dog training, worldwide organization.

Thank you! Sadie had another good day with the Cavaletti game and the stump/picnic table and while on our walk today. Her confidence continues to grow. She actually hopped over a low wire fence instead of going under which was new! We’ll add the proximity games today to our routine. Thanks as always for your amazing knowledge and guidance!" L. Priddy
