Most training programs that I researched were very expensive. All paws on deck was in the price range I was looking to spend. Mary Ann’s love of dogs was apparent the very minute we met. Jasper responded well to his training and very quickly. My expectations of what I was wanting for Jasper were all met and met in a timely fashion.

Details: 1 dog • 1 - 2 years old • Medium (26 - 40 lbs) • General obedience training • Barking • Board and train programs at a facility • I travel to the dog trainer

In the 6 meetings we had we Marianna we learned so much and it was evident that she is such a lover of animals! we hope that we will be seeing her again in the future. she helped us tremendously with our Pebbles and we have a way to go to help pebbles with her excitement over people coming to visit but Marianna left us with strong basic tools that are easy to use - you just have to use them to develop new healthy habits. pebbles loves her so much! We would absolutely recommend her to anyone interested in training for the dog love in their lives!!! We miss you already Marianna!

Details: 1 dog • 0 - 1 years old • Large (41 - 70 lbs) • Puppy training • Leash pulling • Digging • Private dog training lessons • I travel to the dog trainer

We received our quote very quickly, and Marianna was great with our dog, Bentley! She was always on time and took Bentley's behavior into consideration on what would be the best approach to train him. We had a great time ourselves, and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a high-quality, cost-effective dog training program!

Marianna did a fabulous job with our dog! She was very professional and gave us great tips and training on how to handle our dog’s aggressive behavior. Our dog’s behavior has greatly improved over the 6 week period.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I do have a standard pricing for each program level we offer but all the programs and pricing can be modified to fit the needs of the client.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I first meet with you and your dog in their current setting. I want to understand what issues you have, so I can focus my efforts on fixing it. I am then able to recommend the best course of action to take.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have attended many different animal behavior training classes and seminars during the last 35 years. I stay current on all the industry leading literature and training seminars.
