"Two of the most persistent myths about dog training are that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks and that professional dog training is too expensive."

As we navigate this constantly changing environment, the health and safety for everyone is top priority. Phone and virtual questions for behavior and obedience are now available.

Owner/Trainer Phyllis Mazzarisi

Hi my name is Phyllis Mazzarisi. I became a certified dog trainer through Jo-Thors dog Academy in Atlanta, Georgia in 1999. Before that I served in the USAF. For 10 yrs I worked at the Pinellas County Courthouse and decided that I needed to follow my dreams of working with dogs. I have completed many seminars with dog behaviorists Patricia McConnell and Ian Dunbar. I did a shadow program with Pia Silvani and Cesar Milan. I focus on the dogs needs and positive training. I started the Hardee Correctional Program for inmates to train greyhounds so they get adopted. Please let me know how I can help you and your dog.
