The Light of Dog is the result of our passions
converging into our livelihood.

Hello! We are Sue Brown and Ed Soehnel, spouses and owners of The Light of Dog. We want to welcome you to our world of dogs.

The Light of Dog is completely a reflection of our lifestyle – which revolves around our dogs – both personally and professionally.

Sue started out in 1996 volunteering at local shelters and training her own dog and then wanting to help others, she started her dog training business in 2003.

Ed was not happy with dog products we were buying for our dogs, so he started creating his own and then Sue's clients started asking if they could purchase.

That blossomed into us moving in 2009 to 14-acres and remodeling the old house on the property to include an indoor training and in-home boarding facility, space to produce our products and land to grow actual food and do fun things with the dogs.

Yes, we are complete dog lifestyle junkies.

Through our experiences over the years with our dogs, we have found that the best for our dogs is 3 things:

1. Great training – so they are well-trained AND well-behaved;
2. Healthy food and treats – so they can have a long and healthy life of feeling and acting their best;
3. And, quality products – like harnesses, leashes, toys and other products that contribute to a safe and happy life.

Our business is about developing, producing and delivering products and services in these 3 areas that are solutions for us first before we make them available to others.

Whether you are new to having a dog or a long-time dog junkie like us, please take advantage of what we have to offer to help you enjoy your dog.  Subscribe to our email list now and we'll send you a few things in each of these three areas that has really helped us as dog owners.
