About Texas Dog Academy

About Us

Bill Walters Bio

Bill has been training dogs for 50 years. He moved from the metroplex where he was a supervisor for a large dog training company to Granbury, Texas in 1990. He started out with 6 crates and grew from there. His goal is to help people understand their dogs and helping dogs understand their humans. He’s a grateful believer in Jesus Christ, who enjoys fly fishing and deep-sea fishing. Bill runs Texas Dog Academy with his wife Rita who very much compliments their business with her knowledge of dog grooming and kind nature.

Rita Walters Bio

Rita started grooming in Bowling Green, Kentucky in October 2003. She groomed there for 7 years before making her way to Texas. She met Bill in 2011 and they were married three years later. She got into this business simply because she loves dogs and is knowledgeable about all breeds. She found it very relaxing to get the dogs clean and looking good. Her goal is to create a look that is in line with breed standards and compliments the look of the dog. She doesn’t have a favorite breed but has enjoyed working on some of the Doodles that have come by this year. She is a grateful believer in Jesus Christ, who enjoys fishing, camping, and traveling to new places when time permits.
