Where people learn to lead and dogs love to follow! 707-292-5862
Meet the Trainer:
Laurel Scarioni of Pawsitive Results offers dog training and behavior modification services throughout Sonoma County, California. Laurel is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer and Certified Nose Work Instructor. She is a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers and a graduate (with honors) of the San Francisco SPCA Academy for Dog Trainers.
Laurel loves working with dogs, but feels her real job is helping owners learn to communicate more effectively with their companions. Once owners understand their dogs' needs- and can communicate their own needs clearly- wonderful relationships blossom!
While dogs need clear leadership, the use of aversive training techniques is often counterproductive. Laurel uses state-of-the-art, scientifically-based training methods combined with her intuitive connection with dogs to help you become a leader that your dog WANTS to follow! Since Laurel's training techniques do not rely on physical force, they can be used by the whole family regardless of strength.
Meet the Family:
Athen Scarioni is Laurel's supportive and patient husband.
Edgar was adopted from Border Terrier Rescue on May 21st, 2006 at the age of 1 1/2 years. He has titles in agility, rally obedience and K9 Nose Work. He loves to train but is also a champion napper and loves to cuddle under the covers.
Myrtle Mae was adopted from Cattledog Dreams Rescue on January 1st, 2009 at 1 year of age. She has titled in K9 Nose Work at the Nose Work 3 level and is just starting to compete in agility. She is a super sweet but sensitive lady.
Helen was adopted from Noah's B'ark rescue January 2012. The rescue wanted to pull her out of the Humane Society in Cabo, Mexico but asked Laurel to foster and train her since they were concerned about placing a 5 month old deaf cattle dog that had no training. Laurel agreed to work with her, and she fit in with the family so well that she got to stay! Helen is in training for Nose Work and agility and is a ridiculously happy and outgoing girl.
