About Dog Wisdom Workshop

My name is Marilyn Mele.

I am a Professional Dog Trainer and Founder of Dog Wisdom Workshop.

If you’re like most dog owners, you want a well-behaved pet.  But you totally hate the idea of training your dog with hurtful punishment.

At Dog Wisdom Workshop, I teach dog owners how to bring out the best in their dogs with rewards instead of punishment.

My down-to-earth, dog-friendly programs let owners have fun while teaching their dogs to become calm, happy, cooperative family pets.

My Mission

I understand that not every dog owner is an experienced trainer.  So owners often have difficulty teaching their pets good manners at home and in public. To solve this problem, I provide practical, science-based programs that let dog owners access the knowledge and skills they need to safely train their dogs with positive reinforcement. I help pet owners raise the cooperative family dog of their dreams without risking the negative results of punishment-based methods, even if they have never owned or trained a dog before.

Work With Me

My Signature Programs provide pet owners with a proven, step-by-step system that prevents problems before they occur without using force or punishment.

Find the program that’s right for you.
