Train with joy.



Believe me when I say I've been there... But, what if I told you it doesn't have to be that way?


Together, we can create long lasting behavior change using force-free training techniques in a way that is not only fun, but sustainable for you and your unique lifestyle with your dog. 

As a multi-certified dog training professional, I have a strong background in dog behavior and am dedicated to science-backed training methods. As a person who has been in your shoes, I strive to help you understand your dog and reach your goals with kindness, compassion, and empathy. 

Let's engineer a little optimism in your journey with your dog and find the joy in training together - book an initial consultation now.


"Any pet parent that has a fearful or reactive dog can relate with how frustrating and helpless you feel during walks with your dog. I was having that problem with my teenage dog and did not hesitate to reach out to Mallory. I have a very busy work schedule, so I found the online training sessions to work so well with my schedule. There are so many things that I loved from my meetings with Mallory. One of them is the notes after each session which summarizes really well our discussions including links to videos to help with the homework and practice between sessions. When I look back at all of our sessions, each of them added a variety of tools that I could use for pretty much every problem or situation that I was struggling with including times when my dog seemed scared, and I couldn’t tell what was bothering him! I will forever be thankful to Mallory, my dog has improved so much. I’d love to say that he was the one that needed training, but the truth is that I needed to learn to understand that all along he was just trying to tell me that he was scared, and without the proper management techniques, the walks were becoming too overwhelming for him. I can tell that my little dog is gaining confidence and exploring a lot more than before but most importantly, I can see that he trusts me even more which is priceless! Thank you so much Mallory"
