My little adopted pup didn’t know much, but after 4 lessons with Mel he is responding so well! He knows his name, how to sit, and best of all how to walk on a leash without taking me for a ride. Mel has been so accommodating to work with and clearly has a passion for animals! I would highly recommend Mel to anyone who is looking for a great trainer to help their dog.May 4, 2020VerifiedDogpanion Dog Training's reply
Thank you Marisa for the review. I have had a lot of fun coaching you with training Juan. Who knew in one session he would be a professional leash walker! I am always here to help.
She was great!! Very reasonably priced and my dog loved her. We hired her for one session to help with potty training my Rottweiler and my dog was fully trained with almost no issues within two days of her training session!Jan 31, 2020Verified
Look no further for a dog trainer, Mel is the best. She is passionate, patient, and excellent with animals. In the short time that we have used her we have seen results and a more disciplined dog. She cares so much about your animal that she is always available for consultation over the phone. She has boarded and trained our dog when my family went on vacation and sent follow up videos and photos of our puppy on our vacation. We look forward to a long term relationship with Mel and our adorable and well trained puppy.Apr 15, 2018Verified
I met with Mel for the first time last week and I'm very happy that I've decided to work with her. I've got an older dog that hasn't had much formal training, so I was worried that maybe there was no hope for her leash anxiety on walks. But Mel understands that both the dog and the person need training help, and I'm excited to learn alongside my dog Bella. We just might get to take a relaxing walk at the beach this summer!Jun 14, 2016VerifiedDogpanion Dog Training's reply
Lisa, thank you very much for the review. I am happy I was able to reassure hope and helping Bella feel less anxious and more comfortable when leash walking.
Great trainer helped with a lot of my dogs issue and made training fun .Jun 14, 2016VerifiedDogpanion Dog Training's reply
Thanks for the review Shawn. I had a nice time working with you and Flash giving you the tools and techniques needed for you to push forward with puppy training.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We offer a discounted one-on-one Puppy Start Right Package that includes all the puppy basics (potty training, good manners, and basic behaviors) in 5 sessions. We also offer customized, private training sessions where we create a customized training program based on your goals and how your dog learns.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I offer a free phone consultation for all new customers where we discuss your training goals and Dogpanion’s training philosophy.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I believe that every good trainer should have a mix of experience and education, and I keep my knowledge in the field up to date by attending seminars and workshops taught by the industry’s leading dog trainers such as Karen Pryor and Emma Parsons. I am CPDT-KA certified through the Certification Council of Professional Dog Trainers, an AKC STAR Puppy and CGC Evaluator, and a trained Service Dog Coach through Cooperative Paws. Also, I am a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers.
