Laurel Scarioni with her rescue dogs: Helen Handbasket (blue Australian Cattle Dog), Edgar (terrier), and Myrtle Mae (red Australian Cattle Dog) on a trip to the Rockies

Laurel Scarioni of Pawsitive Results has been working with dogs and their people for 20 years. She moved from northern CA to Opelika, AL in July 2018.  Laurel holds a masters degree in educational psychology, and is a graduate (with honors) of the San Francisco SPCA Academy for Dog Trainers. She is also a Certified Nose Work Instructor and a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers. 

Laurel's education has helped her develop skills in both the science and art of dog training and behavior modification... as well as a solid understanding of how people learn! Her training methods will help you become a leader that your dog WANTS to follow. Once owners understand their dogs' behavior and learn to communicate clearly, wonderful relationships can develop!​
