    We recently completed Adult 1 Manners with our 10 month old puppy, Foxy. It was so much fun to watch her "get it". As this is our first dog, much of the training helped us get comfortable with her. House breaking, biting, and jumping has improved with lighting speed. Her leash skills are much improved; she learned to wait for us as we go out the a door; she has learned how to go home to her bed; she responds to the word, "come" so much better then before. She has also learned to sit, lie down, stay and to leave it. We are looking forward to starting the Canine Good Citizen class. Marion has a way of balancing her professionalism with her humor. She is available for questions during class or afterwards by phone or email. She has a way of letting you know that you need to work a bit more if you want your dog to improve without putting pressure on you to do so. In addition to the skills we have learned in class we have learned things about the best kind of leash for our dog; when to use what kinds of treats; the best way to crate and ideas for practicing at home with the emphasis on a few minutes throughout the day rather than time consuming practices. We feel it has been well worth the 1/2 hour drive to Molasses Creek and recommend Marion as a trainer. Her greatest strength is her undeniable love of dog

    My two dogs attended Adult Manners I class with Marion O'Neil. Marion did give us many tips on how to help our dogs follow direction. They have both made strides in their behavior. We are pleased that we attended Molasses Creek Dog Training.

What types of customers have you worked with?
One of the things that I love about my job is the diversity of the people I get to work with. I've worked with a Philadelphia Eagle football player to a Catholic Nun plus everything in between single adults, young couples, families with children, single parents with children and senior citizens.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Don't go to a trainer that claims they can train any dog or give you out right guarantees. We train you to train your dog. How can they guarantee you will do your homework?
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Ask lots of questions about their style of training. Ask if you can watch a class before you commit.
