Mary is our trainer at Central Bark New Berlin and the owner of School 4 Paws LLC. Mary’s motivation is seeing people and their dogs develop an incredibly strong bond through reward based training and having fun doing so. Her goal is your goal. She will help you and your dog build the foundation necessary to reach your goal. Whether your goal is to have a well-adjusted, confident family pet, or earn a title in Canine Good Citizen, Conformation or one of the many sports (agility, nose work, fly ball, parkor, tricks) it all begins with a solid foundation and strong bond between handler and dog. Class time together will help you understand how dogs learn and how to use operant and classic conditioning to obtain desired behaviors and deter, maybe eliminate unwanted behavior problems.
