Welcome to
Spotted Snout

A dog training and walking service currently based in the Capital Region! Meghan uses positive reinforcement based training combined with her love for animal behavior to drive her services. At Spotted Snout we are committed to treating every dog as our very own, so you never have to worry! We strive to cater all our training and services to the needs of the dog and what makes them most comfortable.



At Spotted Snout, we're passionate about helping dogs and their owners. Our founder, Meghan, has a Bachelor of Science in Business Management and is a certified Professional Dog Trainer. She started her first business, Pawket Vet, during her time in college and has since dedicated her career to working with animals. Our team of experienced trainers work with dogs of all ages and breeds to address behavior issues and teach new skills. We believe that training should be fun and rewarding for both the dog and the owner.

We've used Meghan's services for walking our first dog while we traveled and later for helping introduce her to our new puppy. She's very attentive and fantastic at meeting the dogs' individual needs. She ensures they have a good time and are safe. (balancing walking the neighborhood vs playing in the yard when my girl got spooked by the wind).

She is easy to communicate with and shows up when she says she will. Will definitely use Spotted Snout again when we need dog help

I officiated at a small wedding yesterday where Meghan was hired to care for two dogs of the bride & groom. One of the dogs was clearly sick with some kind of stomach bug, but Meghan didn't hesitate one bit! She jumped right in and kept the dogs calm and happy while their parents got married! Would recommend her highly to anyone seeking top quality care!! ❤️🐕🐾🐶

We used Spotted Snout for our wedding day. Meghan was amazing! Our dog Lillie can be quite shy and nervous, so leading up to the wedding, Meghan offered to meet with Lillie 3 separate times to make sure she was as comfortable was she could be for the wedding. Meghan even met us at the venue a few days before the wedding. On the big day, Lillie was so well taken care of. It meant so much to us to have Lillie be there for photos on our big day, and I am so grateful and thankful we met Meghan!
