One of the things I have enjoyed most about my training experience with you (notice I said my training experience...


A dog that is given consistent guidance from an early age grows up to be a confident dog. Education brings security, security brings confidence, and a confident dog has no need to show anxiety-based behaviors.




All VSPDT dog trainers:
  • Are hand-selected by Victoria.
  • Train dogs using only positive reinforcement.
  • Avoid force & outdated dominance-based methods.
  • Work personally with Victoria and her team.
  • Share Victoria's ability to talk and think dog - positively
  • Practice the highest level of courtesy and professionalism.
  • Respect you and your dog at all times.
  • Share the VSPDT mission of creating healthier, more balanced relationships between dogs and owners
  • Help the Victoria Stilwell Foundation support canine assistance organizations.


One of the things I have enjoyed most about my training experience with you (notice I said my training experience as I believe I have needed more training than Captain Jack. :) is your calm nature with the people and the pets. It has been amazing to me to learn that when I am calm, my dog (usually) is also calm.  Also, you have provided a foundation for us in the household to ensure Jack is a part of the family and not some kind of extension or nuisance to 'deal' with.  Louise Matthews Melony is a consummate professional. I have brought my dogs over the years to many different trainers and without a doubt Melony is far and away THE BEST!   Douglas Hanley Melony is a wonderful trainer and makes an effort to be available outside of class times!  DN
