"Manners Without the Mayhem"

Modern Training Solutions: No Shocking, Yelling, or Force Required

Discover a revolutionary approach to dog training that prioritizes compassion and understanding. Forget about outdated methods that rely on bullying, dominating, shocking, pinching, "popping," and force.

I believe in a gentler, more effective approach.

With my expertise, there's no need for harsh tactics that can cause physical or psychological harm or simply mask your dog's feelings.

I understand that you and your beloved companion deserve better.

That's why I refuse to teach you or your dog in any way that goes against our core values of kindness and respect.

Experience the difference

of a training program that focuses on creating a positive bond between you and your four-legged friend. A bond based on trust and understanding not fear or submission.

Choose a trainer who values your pet's well-being as much as you do.

Together, we'll embark on a positive journey towards a well-behaved and happy dog.

Let's transform your dog's behavior, the way you train your dog, and your relationship.



Ask my student/clients! (and check out the videos at the bottom of this page)

"He was unmanageable before and now has excellent behavior"

"We truly couldn't have done it without the training you did with him. He was unmanageable before and now has excellent behavior."

I wasn't sure how I'd like doing virtual sessions with my pup, but I ended up really loving it!! In fact, I'd prefer to do virtual sessions in the future. I will definitely be back for when we're ready to do therapy dog training!

Rocky stops pulling to walk nicely next to Dad.

Your Trainer - Ann Danner

You get me. No substitutes.

Hi! I'm so happy you found me!

My training methods reflect my belief that dogs are more like us than we think. They think, have desires, concerns and feelings. And they learn best like we do, with positive reinforcement.

We just have a communication gap.

Studies are showing that dogs do think a lot like we do and we can bridge that communication gap for better behavior and easier relationships.

Positive reinforcement does not mean your dog gets to do what they want. It does mean that your dog will want to do what you ask, happily, without force or fear.

That's where I come in. Whether your dog is fearful, reactive, distracted, disobedient, or just learning, I'll guide you both to success with proven methods - methods you would want to be used on you.
