We Take Pride in What We Do for You
& Your Best Friends
Star Dog Training is carrying on the two-decade legacy of Wag & Train in the Denver Metro area.
Meet Star Dog Owner, Judy Borsheim
Judy Borsheim, MS, VSPDT, specializes in aggression, anxiety, and behavior problems.
Judy has been helping people and their dogs live happier lives together since 2012. Her goal in working with people and dogs is to go beyond teaching basic obedience and give people “Aha!” moments that unveil a dog’s perspective and how to channel it to calm a dog down, motivate it to listen, discourage problem behaviors, and encourage preferred behaviors.
In attaining her master’s degree in Canine Life Sciences at Bergin University, Judy studied under various well-known, influential people in animal behavior, psychology, ethics, genetics, and evolution – all with a focus on dogs. This is the only masters program of its kind in the United States.
Specializing in Aggression and Anxiety
We all love our dogs, but sometimes their behavior can drive us crazy. Are you unsure how to teach your dog basics like recall and leash walking?
Does your dog:
- Behave badly in public or around guests?
- Have selective listening or just not seem to understand you?
- Pull on walks?
- Destroy belongings when you’re away?
- Mark or have accidents in the home?
We can help! Feeling frustrated, embarrassed, angry, or even sad and stressed about your dog’s behavior is common. At Star Dog Training, we start by creating positive relationships between people and their dogs. From there, we have years of experience opening lines of communication to help people and dogs understand each other. So whether your dog is just a little rough around the edges or practically a wild animal, we can help!
Judy has done an amazing job with our two labs. She has been able to show that old dogs can learn new tricks and younger dogs can be trained to behave. She has even managed to train us humans as well. I highly recommend!

I have worked alongside Judy for 7 years, and I highly recommend her for dog training. She uses only positive reinforcement/reward-based training and truly focuses on the individual needs of each dog. Sara is also a wonderful trainer!
A very positive experience from puppy socialization classes to obedience training. We worked with Judy who was very patient, knowledgeable and informative. She made training easy and fun using positive reinforcement and the result is a very well behaved puppy. I would highly recommend Wag & Train.

Wag & Train was the best thing we did for our dog! I love how they use "positive training" and we learned how to correctly communicate with our dog! I would highly recommend them for training or rehabilitating your dog.

Rufus gives Judy 5 WOOF'S! She was absolutely amazing to help my human better communicate with me by understanding my anxiety and stress. She also has lots of yummy treats for me and I love treats!
Family of Rufus
Judy helped with a custom training plan for our 2.5 year old border collie mix, Elbert, that had some issues with anxiety and needed some general manners training. She did much more than just get us a training plan - she really developed a relationship with our dog and asked comprehensive questions to understand him completely. She recommended things to aid in training that have shown huge benefits in a short period of time. She is an absolutely wonderful adviser and has helped us so much with Elbert. We'll definitely be consulting with Judy in the future as our pup family grows!!!
