“We love MerryMac Dog Training!

Tina's skills as a dog trainer/behaviorist are unmatched. She taught us how to motivate our dogs with praise & positive reinforcement. Our pets are the envy of all our friends. They all know how to display the best manners. We took her tricks class, too. Our little stars love to show off what they have learned. Tina's knowledge of canine nutrition is expansive as well.”

“Ms. Tina...You are the BEST.

I always recommend you to anyone I know with a dog. Best of trained ME in how to deal with our dog (a stubborn Siberian Husky we inherited from our son). Thanks for all your help with ME and Sara, now 11 years old and doing well.”

“To understand how WONDERFUL MerryMac Dog Training services are you must know my dog's history. We had gone through 3 training facilities. All of their methods were different. My dog was aggressive and headstrong. All 3 told me to give up on him. Thanks to Tina my dog is not aggressive, very obedient, and passed the CGC test.
MerryMac Dog Training is Top Notch
and deserves 10 Stars.”
