Dog training type
Maj was very prompt in sending me links and information once we realized somehow her emails weren't getting to me! She is very compassionate and helpful, I will tap into her knowledge again soon. My dog in question loved her. We've been using her tricks for training since she left.Dec 30, 2019VerifiedMajyk Paws Dog Training's reply
Thanks for taking the time to share your experience. It was a pleasure and privilege to work with you both. I appreciate the kind words and happy to hear I left you with knowledge and techniques to use throughout your life journey together.
This trainer really knows what to do! She also offered us hope that one can , indeed , teach an old dog new tricks, and then proceeded to do exactly that ! Two sessions down, and thanks to MAj I am optimistic about my dog for the first time ! Her techniques are amazing ! Thank you, Maj!Oct 30, 2019VerifiedMajyk Paws Dog Training's reply
Thank you for the kind words and for being such a wonderful guardian to a lovely furbaby. Your commitment and investment into the relationship is just as important as the guidance I offered. I’m honored to have the privilege of working with such a great team and grateful to you for taking the time to share your experience with me. Keep up the great work and I’m looking forward to seeing you both again soon!

Thanks for taking the time to share this review. I had every confidence that you would see the progress and move towards your goals seeing the dedication and bond you have with your fur baby. Keep up the great work!
Maj has an amazing level of knowledge about dogs and dog training. It was immensely helpful in getting our new rescue dog past the fearful, timid phase and reveal her loving, playful self. We still use many of the tips and tricks Maj taught us and remain grateful to have hired this delightful person. Don't hesitate to use Maj for any and all dog training issues.Dec 7, 2019VerifiedMajyk Paws Dog Training's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have base rates for various training programs and issues that need addressing but being self employed I have the ability to modify my prices in order to make my services available to as many good hearted, committed dog guardians as possible. For example, elderly or disabled people on limited income who wholeheartedly desire to help their furbaby/furbabies, fire survivors waiting for Insurance claims etc. who have full and loving hearts but not as financially able to spend money that’s not budgeted for. If I can keep a lovely pup in a loving home by offering some of my time on me to solve the issues or struggles, that is worth more than a paycheck and makes my choice of profession is the most rewarding job I can think of.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I generally offer a free phone consult to possible new clients if a text conversation hasn’t given the requesting person the info and confidence that I’m the right person to help teach them and their furbaby to better communicate, address unwanted behaviors while offering alternative choices enabling the dog to self correct which tends to lead to quicker and more solid learning and a more stable feeling dog due to their need to understand rules and expectations. Dogs thrive with structure and consistency and I’m more than happy to meet with the members of the household, discuss challenges, goals and techniques to arrive at the results you’re working towards.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I’m a Certified Dog Obedience Trainer and behaviorist with over two decades of experience volunteering at shelters, rescue groups and fostering dogs who needed more help adjusting to their new environment and overcoming challenges their former life presented them. I also worked my way from entry level job to training and managing the daycare at a highly regarded kennel/ training facility in Santa Rosa due to my dedication, commitment and perfect safety record for all groups I supervised. I feel like working with 100-150 dogs/day has given me a broader overview and experience with a multitude of different dogs, breeds and living situations.
