A training session with Peterson is more than teaching a dog a trick. It is the beginning of understanding and relating to each other, to a bond of communication, that often is neglected or not even sought by many dog owners. It takes work and commitment, consistency and respect, but the long-lasting results are worth the effort.- Barbara Lawlor, The Mountain-Ear

Having 3 previous dogs, and raising our dog since he was born, I figured I had everything down. As our puppy grew, so did his anxiety and fear of just about anything. I tried everything I could think of and was in tears and desperate to find help for him.

Finding Marianna has been a true Godsend. I truly am so thankful I found her. Our dog is an \"extreme\" and with diligence and help from her, we\'ve grown leaps and bounds. It takes work on the owners part, but working with Marianna makes it enjoyable and manageable. We also have a 1 year old daughter and she\'s very flexible with our schedule.

I would recommend Marianna a million times over!! She is a wonderful person and listens to all your concerns and questions. She has been a miracle! We love you!!!


Dog welcomes guests

Jun 04, 2014 by Tina

For over a year we have been unable to have guests in our home because our dog barks and nips at them. Anytime someone comes over, our dog has to be isolated in another part of the house. After working with Marianna we have been able to have guests in our home -- including children.

Marianna has been patient and understanding in our plight, and I highly recommend her for training difficult dogs.

We have been training with Complete Canine for nearly a year now. Working with Marianna has been transformative for both my husband and I AND our dogs. Marianna's gentle spirit and teaching attitude has made the training of our dogs a delight. Never did I think we could have made the progress we have. From calm, attentive dogs in the house to success in the obedience ring; Marianna's depth of knowledge is truly superior.

Not only is Marianna a pleasure to work with, she is very knowledgeable, always thoroughly prepared for our sessions, and patient with our questions. She thinks quickly on her feet to assess a situation, and to provide explanations, helpful examples, or alternate means of accomplishing a goal when a unique situation arises. Marianna has been able to tailor each training session with our dog, Penny, based on the progress we have made up to that point, still with our ultimate needs and goals in mind. And, the handouts that she leaves us with provide helpful “refreshers” for us humans. Because let’s face it – we’re being trained too! We recommend Marianna without hesitation, and we are looking forward to continuing training with her!

We have been working with Marianna since our puppy first started obedience classes. Right from the start she impressed me with her knowledge and understanding of animal behavior. Each visit she works to explain the basis for my dog's behavior as well as give practical and highly effective strategies to manage her. Marianna is very organized and dependable as well. It is a joy to work with her.

Marianna is one of the most gifted animal teachers I\'ve ever known. She has a keen awareness and sharp instincts, clearly gifted with these abilities from a very early age! Her ability to read my dog\'s personality and behavior and make those contributions to the required tasks and practices for his training make all the difference in the meaningfulness of our connection with him. She also seeks to discover the animal\'s passion and purpose -- a level beyond which most trainers are thinking and exploring. I recommend Marianna and Complete Canine to anyone looking to have the best possible relationship with their pet!
