Profile: My name is Marcela and I started to get interested in dog training when I got my first dog years ago, but although I enjoyed attending the classes, I took a total of 4 classes, it didn't occur to me to get my certificate. Years went by, and after getting my MBA and working in different industries, I realized that what I truly enjoyed was being with dogs, whether that involved boarding, walking, training, etc., and so I decided to get my dog trainer certificate from ABC.

Would I do it again? Yes, but I would not wait as long as I did. Life is too short, and I am finally doing something that I truly enjoy and that is being a Dog Trainer.

Profile: I have been working with dogs and their owners for 10 years now. It has been such a rewarding experience for me and it never feels like "work" to me.

I have handled over 300 different dogs of all shapes and sizes. I believe that every dog is good at something and I love figuring out what that "something" is.

I currently own one dog named Gracie but if I could own more I would. She is 3 years old and I rescued her from a high kill shelter in the Carolina's. I feel blessed to have her in my life and I get rewarded every time someone compliments her good behavior and obedience.

I want to help owners realize all the potential their dog can offer.

Profile: Urban Canine promotes positive, reward-based training that enhances the bond between you and your pet and provides you with the tools to build a more joyful and satisfying relationship.

This clear emphasis on positive reinforcement gives dogs the freedom and confidence to think, learn, and experiment throughout the training process.

The dog's natural capabilities are encouraged and rewarded rather than being suppressed through the threat of punishment or harsh corrections.

From your dog's perspective they can solely concentrate on the challenge of learning and trying new things rather than worrying about the consequences of doing something wrong.Our goal is to provide an environment where dogs and their people may play, train and interact in a fun, safe, and pleasant setting while developing a positive, closer, more bonded relationship.

I am a dog lover, dog groomer, a dog trainer, and AKC boxer breeder. I know from first-hand experience the difference dog training makes in the relationship between dog, his owner, and his groomer. Without professional training it can sometimes be a frustrating relationship, but with an investment in good training a wonderful transformation will occur.

I have been working with dogs and their owners for many years and there is nothing which satisfies me more than to see a happy dog and a happy owner!
