Four Footers Training and Boarding is born.

Marie’s goal is to help new and veteran dog owners with their pets by offering obedience training, behavior modification and bereavement counseling.  Marie’s mission is to help create an unbreakable bond between the human and the very well trained pet through exercise, discipline, and affection.

She can help regardless if you have an eight-week-old puppy in need of training and socialization or an eight-year-old dog with some behavioral issues. The training at Four Footers is based on a philosophy of positive reinforcement and encouragement to help owners become the leader of the pack. Leadership skills for a dog owner is vital and Marie teaches exactly how to become the leader of your own pack for a healthy, well-balanced dog.

Marie is excited to add boarding to her offerings, and can’t wait to welcome your pets into her home.
