Ana's Bio

Thank you for your interest in Training With Grace.  Here's a little about Ana, your trainer.

Ana Melara has been working with dogs and their families for over a decade, originally in NYC and for more than 7 years here in Colorado. She is a Certified Pet Dog Trainer and member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers. She is a Canine Good Citizen evaluator. She keeps herself current by attending various workshops, seminars and conferences. Her training techniques are founded on praise-based, dog-friendly methods, and a fundamental belief that, as their guardians, we are responsible for their well-being and training and we are obligated to 'be good leaders to our dogs.' Whether she is teaching basic obedience, agility, puppy socialization, potty training, or addressing a dog's aggression issues, Ana stresses to all of her human clients the profound importance that their leadership plays in their dog's training. Ana also donates her time and services to various rescue organizations in the area including Colorado Saint Bernard rescue and Colorado Greyhound Adoption.  

Ana lives in the Denver Metro Area with her husband, Travis the Paramedic/Fire fighter, Army reservist, Rebeca her 3 and 1/2 -year-old bright eyed dog trainer/ballerina/princess, Gracie her 10 year-old agility champion whippett/pitbull mix, Argos her 7 year-old blood donor German shepherd mix, and Meg her 5 year-old black lab agility superstar. All of her dogs are Delta Society Pet Partners.
