Founder & Trainer
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 through group classes.
Myra used a balanced approach to dog training. There is no "right" way or "wrong" way. There is only what works for that particular dog and handler and what doesn't work. Due to the fact that many of the clients (herself included) are physically disabled the traditional methods for training are not 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 client's disability but also adapting to the dog's personality.
