Your Statesville, NC Dog Trainer
Stasia moved to North Carolina from Clermont, FL. Having worked with a variety of animal species her entire life, she has trained dogs recreationally since she was ten years old (where she showed in 4H, began trick training and was involved in a number of obedience and agility classes). Stasia has been training professionally since college, where she utilized her knowledge of animal behavior to help other students work with their personal dogs.
After taking a short break to pursue a career in communications, Stasia realized that working with animals was her passion – one which transformed into a calling. She has worked in a kennel environment as a trainer and a technician, in addition to working as a veterinary technician for a mobile vet clinic in Florida.
Stasia graduated from the Highland Canine Training, LLC’s Master Dog Trainer program with honors, where she was certified to train pet dogs, police and military K9s, search and rescue dogs and service dogs. She works with the aim of optimizing every dog’s potential and enabling their human owners to see the unexplored capabilities of their canine companion.
“Many of the issues experienced in human to dog – and vice versa – interactions are the unfortunate result of miscommunications and an inability to understand each other,” says Stasia. “I realize that, much like us, every dog is an individual and consequently must be treated as such. I use a balanced and individualized training approach for each client I work with, providing you and your family with a dog able to coexist with and thrive in your unique lifestyle.
“By learning to understand and listen to what your dog is trying to tell you, both of your lives can change drastically. Often, even small lifestyle tweaks can make a significant difference in your results. Many times, in the process of ‘teaching’ their dog new things, people discover that their pup also has a lot to teach them.”
Stasia currently owns three dogs – Sophie, a five year old Labrador mix; Lylah, a two year old German Shepherd; and Castora, a Groenendael puppy.

With private lessons, our trainers come to your home on a weekly basis for a one hour appointment. After assessing the current situation for you and your dog, our trainers use their expertise and experience to develop an action plan to help resolve troublesome behaviors.

All of our training programs are guaranteed and include free follow-up training for the life of the dog.
Our range of group dog training classes is an ideal way to socialize your dog in a safe environment. Meeting other pups and new people in a group class is a great way to give your dog mental and physical stimulation.
We offer a range of group training classes for clients in Statesville and the surrounding areas, usually based at our canine training facility in Harmony, NC. Our curriculum includes basic obedience, advanced obedience, tracking, agility and trick training, among others. The classes typically run for six weeks, with classes taking place once a week.
With their enhanced sense of smell, impeccable hearing and lasting endurance, dogs are often regarded as the most valuable resource in efforts to locate missing individuals.
At Highland Canine, we recognize the importance of training search and rescue dogs and offer comprehensive programs for handlers and dogs. Our facility is equipped with a functional rubble pile and a regulation FEMA agility course, with acres of wilderness and bodies of water enabling rigorous training.
Search and Rescue dogs can be trained in tracking, trailing, land or water cadaver, amongst several other skills. If you have a search and rescue dog you wish to train, or are interested in a SAR certification program, contact us today for more information!
