Myra started All 4 Paws Training LLC to help others like herself who could greatly benefit from a service dog but who couldn't afford to buy a trained dog. Owner trained service dogs can be just as good as a dog trained by an organization or company, the problem is lack of guidance for people. All 4 Paws Training LLC is designed to provide that guidance.
Myra uses a wide range of training methods and all use positive reinforcement training. Due to the fact that many of her clients (herself included) are physically disabled the traditional methods for training are always physically possible. This is where Myra's adaptive nature and ability to think 'outside the box' have come in very handy. This ability not only applies to adapting to the clients disability but also adapting to the dogs personality.
Myra is currently an American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen (CGC) evaluator (#44029), Service Dog Evaluator with the Foundation for Service Dog Support (FSDS) (#42) & a volunteer trainer with the American Service Animal Society (ASAS).
Myra currently teaches classes in: Obedience, Rally, Pet Tricks, Public Access and Service Dog Skills.
Specialty: Wheelchair Assist training. Group Classes, Private Classes and I do most of the new client evaluations.
Myra currently has 1 dog:
German Shepherd Dog - Raven (Service Dog)
