Welcome: This is Sophie (Moyer) Myers M.Ed. and I am the owner and instructor for Happytails Dog Training
I have been teaching owners and their dogs for 31 years. I have had over 300 hours of related seminar instruction and continue to read to update my instructional skills. A few years ago I started teaching, using the clicker training method of positive reinforcement. I found if the students really use it, it is very effective.
By profession, I was a high school Biology and Psychology teacher for 30 years. I retired in 2001.
I am a certified instructor (member #796) with NADOI (National Association of Dog Obedience Instructors). I have certification for instruction in companion dog (beginners/level 1 and novice dog (my level 2 classes).
NADOI was founded in 1965 and is the oldest instructor's association in the world. Certification of instructors is achieved through evaluation of an extensive written examination and course evaluation.
Happytails training uses a positive method of motivation and reinforcement to give you a dog that will be a welcome member of your family and the community.
