I have been through both the basic class and the advanced class with Mad 4 My Dog and I loved it! My dog is now happy and obedient, and because it is all done with positive reinforcement, she is thrilled to work with me and listen to commands. Madalyn is a fantastic trainer and is willing to work with dogs labeled as "problems"; she allowed me into a group class with my dog who can be dog-aggressive and really worked to help my dog adjust to being around others. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a trainer.
Pros: positive training

Got to Get Mad for My Dog
posted 8 years ago
Actually, the name of this service is Mad4MyDog, but zootoo keeps reading it as a url, and it isn't registering on the site. Go to www.mad4mydog.com to find out more about Madalyn Moorman, obedience trainer extraordinaire for pet dogs. Madalyn emphasizes positive reinforcement techniques for deepening your relationship with your dog companion, and her methods not only work extremely well, they are humane and emphasize a loving approach. There are many trainers who use aversive techniques and jerk your dog around, shaming them and using fear to coerce dogs into the desired behaviors. This approach is counterproductive. You wouldn't treat your best friend that way, why your dog? Madalyn also recognizes that your dog is, well, a dog, and that we shouldn't ascribe spite or guilt or other human reactions to an animal. Let dogs be dogs, treat them lovingly, and give them structure and a means to communicate with you so that they can live in harmony with you. Madalyn delivers this message with conviction, and I have her to thank for not only training my three dogs, but also training me! It is all about being consistent and takes just as much work on the human's part as the dogs. Mad4MyDog is located just outside of Ellettsville and has a self-serve bathing area and a shop with many hard-to-find toys, treats, collars, leashes, harnesses, and dog food. Well worth the trip, and Madalyn is the very best trainer in the area and beyond!
