“I’m Patty Malnick and I love coaching people to train their dogs! I have been working with owners and dogs individually and in groups for over 15 years. During this time I have developed highly effective dog training systems that use positive reinforcement to guide your dog happily to the right behaviors. Whether you desire one-on-one training, a group class, or a professional consultation, we have the programs to get you and your dog where you need to go happily!”


“My Shar Pei Lulu was a pound rescue dog. She was tiny, scared and had been taken from her mother too soon. To make things more challenging, I had little experience with any kind of dog. Patty taught me how to work with Lulu and trained her to respond to me. Since working with Patty, I have an amazing dog and Lulu has an owner who understands how a dog ‘works.’ Whenever I have a question or problem, Patty is quick to respond. She remembers us and our particular quirks and provides solutions. I highly recommend Patty for her dog AND people skills!”

“Patty Malnick has been the best trainer I have ever come across. She is extremely knowledgeable but more than that, her advice is practical and “user friendly.” My dogs (and I have three) have benefited greatly from Patty’s assistance with their training. Whenever I have an issue, she is available to talk to me on the phone to help resolve any problem. I could not be happier and only wish she lived closer as I’d work with her every week”.

“I highly recommend Patty Malnick’s training classes. When I got my little rescue, I tried a couple of training classes…& wasn’t too happy. Patty’s techniques for training are far superior. She makes it fun and easy….and she was very kind to my dog in her methods to correct the bad habits she had when I got her. I often tell my friends about her classes and her unique skills, and plan on taking another one as soon as I can. Excellent trainer & great human being! You may use this testimonial. Thank you for the help you’ve given Izzy & I”.

Happi Dawgs 3 has an additional time!

Mondays at 7:30pm,  starting May 16

Happi Dawgs 3 is Open to all graduates of Happi Dawgs II

Class Description:
With this Personalized, semi private class (no more than 6 dogs), we will not only focus on increasing proficiency and performance of your pup in a variety of distractions and real life situations, we will also focus on your very own person training needs and situations.

In every class, each student’s question or training challenge will get addressed.

Since each class will address new topics brought up by students each week, and not taught as sequentially as Happi Dawgs I or II, a student can come to any class on Thursday at 11am OR Monday at 7:30pm, with a reservation.

The class will focus on new topics of your choice and assist you in better understanding how your dog is learning from you.  It will emphasize just how your timing, body language and management are effecting your dogs learning ability.  The training skills taught, will aid you further into  mastering the perfect walk on a loose leash (even in open space), rapid fire recalls, extreme leave it’s and waits, better social manners, tricks,  and down stays with distractions.

We will utilize the Fountain’s Mall and other nearby locations (agreed upon in advanced and weather permitting) to really work with your dogs outside and with all sorts of distractions.

What’s even better is this class offers a multi-class discount AND each class is independent of the others. So you can come when your schedule permits and not miss anything if you can’t attend a class.

Please contact Patty to sign up for class

Since class space is limited you must cancel your reservation 48 hours in advance or incur the class fee.

Multi Class Discounts:

Buy 9 classes for $159
Buy 6 classes for $119
One class: $25 per class.
