I’m Marilyn Mele, a Professional Dog Trainer and Founder of Dog Wisdom Workshop and Marilyn Mele Professional Dog Training.
I teach dog parents how to instill good habits in their dogs and in themselves so that they can prevent frustrating behavior problems before they happen.
Happy dog, happy human!
There’s more to training a dog than just having one! So dog parents can often experience frustration and even embarrassment when they expect their dogs to have good manners at home and in public. To fix this problem, I teach purposeful solutions for safely training dogs with science-based positive reinforcement without risking the negative outcomes of punishment-based methods.
My Purposeful Solutions VIP Coaching for Dog Parents provides every dog parent with a proven, step-by-step system that prevents problems before they happen without using force or intimidating punishment.
For experienced dog parents, my down-to-earth, dog-friendly online coaching program lets you schedule unlimited brief lessons at your convenience.
Whether you need a foolproof housebreaking plan, a reliable system to get your dog to come when you call, a method to teach loose leash walking, or a purposeful solution to another dog dilemma, you can be confident that one of my signature programs is perfect for you.
Does your playful dog have a hidden genius for natural mischief? This is a true story:
My dog once taught herself how to open the gate in the backyard.
To be clear, I assume she “taught herself”, because I know I never taught her that genius Houdini trick!
Like Goldilocks, my Mom was a fan of moderation. “Don’t overdo it.” I heard that a lot as a kid. How to train a dog wasn’t what Mom had in mind! But the more I learned about dogs, the more I understood Mom’s Goldilocks Rule.
