Owner – Applause Your Paws Dog Boarding and Training
Our Miami program is led by accomplished professional dog trainer, Dee Hoult. Dee is currently leading her dream career as CEO of Applause Your Paws, Inc., Miami’s largest privately owned reward-based dog training company. Her mission is to help dog owners improve their quality of life through enjoyable, connected relationships with their canine companions. Dee and her team do this by providing engaging, positive education and non-intimidating training so that in any environment they can have the well-behaved dog they always wanted. Dee earned a bachelors and masters degree from the University of Miami, is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT), is Miami’s only licensed Family Paws educator, a certified trick dog training instructor, and an American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen Evaluator.
In addition to managing her staff and assisting her own clients, Dee is the founder of the APDT’s Networking Group in South Florida, Miami Dade Animal Service’s ”go to” professional for canine evaluations and volunteer training, a CATCH Canine Trainers Academy Mentor Trainer, and founder of Miami-Dade County’s Second Chance Dog Training Program (a “puppies behind bars” program with Miami-Dade County Corrections). Dee has also been honored in the past to serve on the Board of Directors for the South Florida Veterinary Medical Association & Foundation as well as the Board of Trustees for the national Association of Professional Dog Trainers.
Dee is what you could call a “serial networker.” If there is an opportunity to meet people and connect, you can be sure to find her there! Dee shares her home with two cats, three working dogs, her husband, Sam, and their new baby boy, Jack. With her dogs, Dee enjoys competitive canine sports including agility, frisbee, rally obedience, competition obedience, tricks, as well as week-long hiking, biking, camping and kayaking trips.
What Students Are Saying:
“I would definitely recommend this workshop. There was a lot of hands on time for working with handling and training dogs. The power points and lectures were informative as well. Dee Hoult was a wonderful trainer and instructor for the week!” – Sarah M. 2016 Graduate
“The workshop was both extremely informative and fun. All the instructors were excellent! It was clear they had many years of both hands on experience as well a background in the science and knowledge of dog training. I felt I was learning from the best. The material was presented in an interactive and easy to understand format. The high ratio of teacher to student enabled all of us to get invaluable feedback during training. The written assessment pointing out areas of strengths and need for improvement was very helpful as well. I would definitely recommend this workshop and enroll myself in future ones as well.” – Jeanne R. 2017 Graduate
