Hi!  I am Mary Alverson! My goal is to empower dog parents and help them create better relationships with their dogs. By providing caring and respectful coaching in sound science & evidence-based training and management methods, I can help anyone improve their dog’s behavior. My methods are positive reinforcement-based, force-free, and dog-centered. My approach to business is to go above and beyond for my clients, provide extraordinary customer service, and build upon every success. Learn more about me on the About Me and My Method pages.

PAWSitive Energy is all about bringing positivity & truthful light into the spectrum of dog training.
 There is so much focus on what we don’t want, what we need to avoid, what to stop, what we hate – my goal is to create a paradigm shift in the way we view our dogs, their behavior, and their place in our homes.   Focusing on what we DO want from our dogs, recognizing what is realistic, and being clear about our intentions, is a powerful way to build relationships and create almost magical change.

If this all sounds intriguing to you, stick around and we will explore these ideas together.  Please feel free to contact me, I would love to help you change your dog’s behavior!
