Helping stressed out dog & puppy guardians find peace through positive reinforcement dog training.
We know how overwhelming & stressful it can be to have a dog who struggles with fear, anxiety, or aggression.
Or how frustrating it is to deal with your dog or puppy's jumping, nipping, or pulling on walks.
Together we can transform anxious or unruly behavior into a harmonious relationship & peaceful household!
“Our pups have been working weekly with Megan. We had aggression issues with one pup showing guarding. She has worked absolute wonders with them and things are so much better. More importantly, we are learning how to manage the situation & we have peace again at home.“
- Sehila C.
“Megan is so knowledgeable about everything to do with dog behavior & takes the time to customize a program for each individual dog. Both my dogs & I learned so much from her. If you want a caring, thorough, super knowledgeable person working with you & your dogs, you can’t go wrong with Train Your Dog!”
- Laura E.
“It was my first time having a dog & I was clueless & stressed. Megan came to the rescue & easily taught me how to train my pup in a gentle & positive manner. After just a few sessions, I was comfortable with training & learned so much about dog behavior & body language. I am grateful we found her!”
- Danielle A.
