Is your dog a brat?
Melissa Marter has been training dogs since 1999. Her theory of behavior modification and level of skill and knowledge on how to balance the energy between human and dog will guarantee success.
Your only job is to maintain the behavior. We use a combination of methods depending on your unique situation. At Who’s Your Doggie, we aren’t limited to only one method of dog training. This is essential because all dogs respond differently to methods of training. We match the training method to the specific temperament of your dog so that he/she can learn in their own way at their own pace. Our training is NOT treat based. While we use positive reinforcement with food for some training, using treats alone does not teach reliable recall, or commands.
We create structure and discipline for results and reliability. Our dogs are trained to understand the commands and to love doing it.
We are confident that you’ll see amazing results on the first day. We’ll work with you hand-in-hand so that reinforcing the training is a job you can handle every day. Training your dog is step one. Training their humans is next. Follow-up visits provide ongoing guidance and help you maintain what your dog has learned. Our goal is to make sure you are empowered to follow through with the training and that things are working out well.

ONE ON ONE LESSONS
Private lessons are available in your home, our facility, or location of your choice. A one-hour lesson may be broken up into several small sessions depending on the need. If we can’t get a dog to perform a certain task, we can make several visits to accomplish our goals. For example if your dog is barking at guests, we can make several short visits to reinforce the door manners. In just one lesson we can accomplish some of the basic commands or manners (If your dog allows). We also handle behavior issues; however, this may be on a management plan, this MAY not be solved with one visit.
