Evidence Based, Welfare Focused

My name is Megan Marzloff and I’ve been working professionally with dogs for the last decade. I started out working at DeKalb Animal Services, a large open intake shelter in the metro Atlanta area. Working with thousands of stray dogs is hard on the heart, but great for learning to quickly and accurately read canine body language. Next I worked at Wish Bone Canine Rescue in Illinois. This is where I learned how to create individualized training plans for the needs of specific dogs at the shelter, and started teaching adopters and volunteers how to set dogs up for success. My final shelter placement was at the Humane Society of Utah, where I spent my time helping fearful, reactive, and overexuberant dogs cope with their shelter stay and find successful homes. In addition to my work in shelters, I’ve also worked at several positive reinforcement based dog training establishments, where I taught group and private lessons covering basic manners, puppy socialization, tricks, scent work, agility and “problem behavior” resolution.


I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer, Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA), a designation awarded by the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers. As part of maintaining this certification, and due to my intrinsic desire to keep learning, I participate in ongoing continuing education courses so that I stay up to date on the latest research on best practices in the dog training and welfare fields. I’ve attended the Karen Pryor Clicker Expo, the Michael Shikashio Aggression in Dogs Conference, the IAABC Conference, and trainings by Grisha Stewart, Kathy Sdao, Susan Friedman and more. I find dogs to be fascinating creatures, and I am committed to learning all I can about them so I can be best prepared to serve their needs.

Meet My Dogs

Although I've worked with thousands of dogs over the years, these are the three who have had the greatest impact on my training philosophy.
