Originally from the Chicago suburb of Deerfield, Illinois Marni Center moved to Colorado to attend the University of Colorado at Boulder. After earning a Bachelor’s degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology she knew that she wanted to work with animals. She planned to study Wildlife Conservation in Graduate School but after, adopting two dogs of her own she decided that training dogs to be well mannered family members would be a more rewarding career choice. Marni then completed the Animal Behavior College dog trainer certification program which included volunteering at the Denver Animal Shelter and working closely with an established dog trainer. She has spent the last eight years brushing up on her skills as a trainer with frequent seminars and by following the latest scientific research in dog training. Since starting her business (previously named Pawsitive Obedience) Marni has practiced and learned a great deal training hundreds of dogs and their families in the Denver area.
