Specializing in: Pit Bulls * Puppies * Aggression Prevention

Hi!  I am Mary Alverson! My goal is to empower dog parents and help them to create harmonious relationships with their dogs. By providing caring and respectful guidance, and instruction in modern, humane training, management and care techniques, I can help anyone improve their dog’s behavior, and facilitate peace and camaraderie.


In-Home Training Sessions – I can work with you AND your dog, OR I can train your dog FOR you. Come home to a trained dog.


ONLINE TRAINING SESSIONS NOW AVAILABLE!  I can help you from the comfort of your computer. Online training sessions for various issues such as house training, specific obedience behaviors (come when called, stay, etc), and more. Through video, chat, and email, you’ll get a customized training plan. Ask me for more information, I’m here to help:  realpitbull@gmail.com 


PAWSitive Energy is all about bringing positive, truthful light into the spectrum of dog care and 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 all think, not just about animals but about ourselves and the world.  Focusing on the positive – what we DO want, what we DO love, what we DO feel happy about – is a powerful way to shift focus 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!

COMING SOON!  New Spring Programs at Pawsitive Energy!    Training Walks – work on leash manners and good behavior in public. These are FREE for anyone who has taken classes or 3+ private sessions with me. Great for fine-tuning leash work, helping mild reactivity, and getting behaviors amidst distraction.  Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Classes – learn the exercises needed to pass the CGC, and take the test at the end of the 5 week session.  Dates to be announced soon!
