Schylar Postle is a Professional Dog Trainer with over 15 years of training experience. Growing up with a leash in her hand, Schylar started training her first puppy at the age of four under the watchful eye of her father, Jeff Postle, a Training Instructor at The Tom Rose School in St. Louis, Missouri. At the age of eight Schylar trained her second dog to compete in AKC obedience receiving her first CD title with two first place finishes and a third place finish. Not only did Schylar spend her childhood at The Tom Rose School, but from an early age she assisted in countless training demonstrations, group classes and assisting owners in training their pets. Before relocating to Richmond to further her training career at Holiday Barn Schylar trained dogs for K9 America in St. Louis, Missouri. In her spare time Schylar enjoys training her own dog Margo, a Belgian Malinois, in various levels of obedience and dog sports and exploring her new surroundings. She looks forward to working with the Pack at Holiday Barn and helping Richmond area dogs (and their families) live happier, healthier, more balanced lives!
