Get to Know Our Friendly Dog Trainers From Southern Virginia

Stephanie Loria


A lifelong dog lover (who loves people, too!), Stephanie has made a career of teaching and helping others.
She has been training dogs for over twenty years.
A former a Division 1 college athlete, Steph began working immediately after graduation as a recreation therapist. For more than a decade, she served in diverse settings including a drug/alcohol rehab, nursing home, children’s burn hospital, psychiatric facility, and an afterschool program for autistic kids.
She went on to get her master’s 30+ in education, spending the next 18 years as a PE instructor for K-through-8 special needs students in the NYC public schools, and as a graduate school professor at Manhattanville College.
In her spare time, Stephanie is a softball umpire, boat captain, lifeguard, and holds a black belt in jiu jitsu.
She co-owns three dogs: a laid-back, 8-year-oldBeagle mix who loves to swim; and a pair of semi-feral rescues, Giorgio and Agent 99, whose reactivity inspired her to become a full-time dog train trainer!
