Training By Marli



Marli graduated at world renowned Triple Crown Dog Training Academy in Austin, Texas in January 2008. For further information about Triple Crown Academy go to"My goal is to help your dog better understand his or her role in your family's chain of command. Working with the owner along with the dog is extremely valuable and essential for success. Dogs and their owners that understand the rules and boundaries of dog obedience generally live happier and healthier lives."-Marli Prather
My training techniques, or what I like to call "Petiquette", include the following:

  • Down
  • Sit
  • Stand
  • Sitting At The Door
  • Automatic Sit
  • Sit/Stay
  • Down/Stay
  • Coming when called
  • Place Recognition
  • Name Recognition
  • Heeling (walking on leash)

Behavior and attitude of both dog and owner are also examined. Some dog problem areas addressed are listed below but are not limited to:

  • Growling
  • Chewing
  • Digging
  • Barking
  • Jumping
  • Running Off
  • Housebreaking
  • Dog Aggression

Rejuvenation Treatment

These lessons are given in the privacy of the dog's home and/or at The Pawms. With this package of individual training sessions we will meet once a week for 5 weeks, and each lesson is 45min to an hour.

Board and Train

These personal training sessions are tailored to the temperament of the dog and the handler. Training sessions are scheduled for 5 consecutive days of boarding and training at The Pawms. This helps reinforce the dog's attention to the handler in environments outside the home setting. After the 5 days the dog and handler enters into the Rejuvenation treatment.


  • I am very pleased the the training offered at The Pawms. Marli is a terrific trainer who "trained" me as well as Buster. He is now no longer a "door-buster" due to basic obedience and One-on-One training!"
