About Me

Morgan McMurdy, CPDT-KA, B.S.

We all want to enjoy life beside our dogs. But we do ask a lot of our pups in our modern, busy human world... which isn't always easy for them to understand. Unwanted behaviors like barking, jumping, running away, even aggression can develop in even the best of homes and situations. This can be frustrating, disruptive, harmful, and impact your (and your dog’s) quality of life.

 

But whether you are looking to change an unwanted behavior, build a strong foundation in a new puppy, or just improve your pup’s known skills, I can help you make achievable goals and enact a plan to reach them! And if I don't think I am the best fit for you to reach those goals, I can help you find the right path that will. 

 

I've been training animals my entire life, and training dogs professionally since 2014. In that time, I've learned how important HUMANE solutions and reliable mentorship is for getting EFFECTIVE behavior change in our pets. My training methods follow up-to-date science in the field of dog behavior and cognition. Training without the use of harsh or intimidating tactics and focusing on understanding how dogs learn, building a relationship, and clarifying communication leads to a happier outcome for BOTH ends of the leash.

 

Each dog is unique and training is never a one-size-fits-all quick fix. I tailor training to work with YOUR dog’s unique motivators and learning style. I also follow the CCPDT’s Code of Ethics, which ensures that all dogs (and people!) under my care are treated with respect and kindness.

 

Contact me today to chat more and find out how I can help you alleviate all that unwanted stress between you and your pup, and achieve that harmonious life you dreamed of beside them.
