Fulfilled Dogs; Happy Owners

Liberty Hill, TX


Amanda Ott



Golden star Canine is a force-free training facility and dock diving pool located in Liberty Hill, Texas. I provide dock rentals, dock-diving lessons, enrichment boarding, board and train, and individual lessons.  

I believe that training dogs to work cooperatively with us and providing appropriate mental and physical stimulation enriches the lives of both dogs and their owners. I strive to strengthen the understanding and bond between your dog and you so that your pet can be your best friend. 


Competing in agility and obedience at a young age sparked an interest and passion for dogs and training.  After graduation from Texas A&M, I began working with chimpanzees at the National Center for Chimpanzee care.  I started to learn the science behind training and how to make training a team process between you and the animal.  From there I began working as a professional trainer and earned my CPDT-KA certification.  I volunteer my time with Travis County Search and Rescue and have trained multiple dogs for air scent, trailing, and human remains detection.  I constantly work to continue to educate myself and grow as a trainer to better help the dogs and people I have the privilege of working with.
