Diane Kurkjian

Owner of Everydog, LLC. Diane became interested in dog training after adopting her wonderful Chow mix, Ebony, in 1996. Ebony had several behavior issues that required Diane to put careful thought into how to teach her to be both comfortable and safe in her household. Ebony went on to earn her AKC Canine Good Citizen title, as well as a rally obedience competition title. By then, Diane was hooked on the subject of dog training and behavior.
Since then, Diane has delved deeper into the world of animals, and particularly dogs, becoming a veterinary technician in 2002 and an animal control officer in 2007. She is an instructor and the former training director at New England Dog Training Club in Cambridge, MA. These experiences have given Diane a unique perspective on the role that animals play in our lives.
She has attended numerous seminars and courses on dog training and behavior, including the Dogs of Course Instructor Training Course. In 2014, she became a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA). She also continues to further her knowledge of dog sports (and having fun!) by taking her dogs, Ollie, CGC, RL1, RA, SDA, NW2 and Bonita, RA, NW3 to obedience, rally and scentwork classes.
