Nominated for: BEST Training
Grisha Stewart created Ahimsa Dog Training in 2003 with one goal: help Seattle's dogs and their humans create a better relationship through dog-friendly training. Ahimsa was the 2010 BOWW winner and we have been voted the top facility in Seattle since the beginning of the BOWW contest.
We started with just one trainer and have grown to a 5-trainer business with a dozen puppy classes a week, growly dog and manners classes, private lessons, play times, two training rooms and a training gear store. We've grown, but we've never lost our love of dogs and their people.
One feature of most of our classes is that they are ongoing. You can even change your session reservations to fit your busy life, or come to extra sessions for free.
We strongly believe that knowledge is power. The Ahimsa website (DoggieZen.com) has loads of free tips for dog lovers in their blog. You can learn how to teach your dog to fetch, walk well on leash, or come when called with info from the website.
Free, easy parking and a free weekly intro to training class. Make a note to check us out!
We also offer advanced seminars for other dog trainers.

Ahimsa is GREAT! We took our dog Riley for puppy training with Grisha years ago when he was young and have used their private trainer services as well when dealing with training concerns later in our dog's life. Mireille has most recently worked with us and is a fantastic trainer! I love their positive approach to training. The dogs light up and really respond to it. I have recommended Ahimsa since we completed the first puppy class and will continue to be a client of theirs in the future. Top notch dog training!

Ahimsa is amazing! Sign up for a multi-week class, and you can take any other classes as well, like agility, for the duration of the class you've registered for. Trainers are excellent! They love dogs, and all the ones I've dealt with are very professional.
