About Me

Hi, my name is Melanie


Have you ever dreamt about your perfect career? the kind of job that would make you jump out of bed in the morning, ready to welcome in the new day? Mine has always involved working with dogs and making a difference to people’s lives.  So here I am, in a job I love, living my own personal dream!

As a graduate of the Victoria Stilwell Dog Training Academy, I am a positive reinforcement dog trainer. This means that I use reward-based training methods that are deeply rooted in the continually evolving world of behavioral science. 


Outdated old school dominance and punishment are certainly not my bag.  Not only does science tell us that these methods achieve temporary results and can often result in eventual aggressive behavior, but that they are cruel, dangerous and unnecessary.


I have made it my mission to help promote and strengthen the bond between humans and their canine companions, so that I can make a difference in your world.  I truly believe that by increasing the understanding of how dogs communicate with their humans, amazing things can be achieved.  The results speak to themselves, content well-mannered canines and relaxed happy humans!


Thank for visiting The Positive Pup and for taking your very first step towards building a special bond with your canine companion.
