I learned all the different methods of training so you don't have to
Hi, I'm Tonya Martin. I started learning about dog training to correct bad behavior in my own dog. I've always had a love for animals and pretty much let them do whatever they wanted until I noticed some food guarding issues with one of my own dogs. While working on this issue I got more and more involved in dog training. I've learned several different types of training. I consider myself a balanced trainer. Each dog is a different journey. I try different techniques to see which method they respond to the best. Communication is key. I believe dogs need to understand yes and no. I use praise, treats and training collars to help with the training process. Not all dogs respond the the same techniques so I customize each lesson to fit the dog.
I attended a Dog Trainers Academy for 6 months where I become certified as a dog educator/trainer. I continued my education by attending some seminars to learn more about balanced training and specializing in low level e-collar training. I have done shadow programs with some the the top trainers in the country. In addition, I have had endless hours of studying dog behavior and training methods.
But what make me the best? Compassion. Nobody wants your dog to succeed more than me. I love dogs and want them to be the best family members they can be. I enjoy watching the dogs transform into wonderful, well-mannered dogs that are hidden inside them.
