Heidi Hurdy

In 1989 Heidi began apprenticing under Sirius Puppy Training’s founder, Dr. Ian Dunbar and several of  Sirius’ top trainers at that time. Shortly after, she started the San Jose branch which soon was a thriving location. Until then, off leash puppy classes were unheard of in that area.

After a couple of years, she decided to take a break from professional training. Upon her return she became involved in hobbies including competition AKC obedience, conformation and some limited breeding. Over the years she has shared her life with several Labradors, 2 German Shorthaired Pointers, and 2 Miniature Pinchers. She currently enjoys the companionship of an enthusiastic Labrador and a silly Italian Greyhound.

She was thrilled to rejoin the Sirius team in 2010. Heidi stays current on modern, science based, dog friendly training methods by attending seminars, conferences and workshops, taking online courses, reading books and watching videos. She enjoys participating in group classes and competitions in obedience and rally with her dogs for fun and as a way of keeping her skills fresh.

Watching puppy owners grasp the same, simple, relationship building methods just as she did brings her great satisfaction, knowing that the puppies that come through her classes have a greater chance of staying in their forever homes, living long, happy lives as cherished companions.

Heidi is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) issued by the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers and a professional member of The Association of Professional Dog Trainers. 

In addition to teaching puppy and adult dog training classes through Sirius, she offers private in-home consultations and coaching through Midtown Mutts in Sacramento, CA.
