Registration is required at mishamayfoundation@gmail.com

Dog Behavior Specialist: Lorraine May, M.A.
Executive Director of Misha May Foundation Dog Training and Rescue Support
Voted Best Dog Training in Denver 3 years in a row!

Lorraine May has been training for over 15 years. The rescue has always accepted the hardest dogs that no one else wanted. Lorraine has fostered and worked with just about every breed and every issue successfully over the years. Lorraine’s dog behavior articles have been published by Channel 9, Mile High Dog magazine, Cats and Dogs Colorado magazine, Natural Awakenings, Walnut Hills Newspaper and other local publications.

Philosophy: Misha May employs Learning Theory which is an educational approach. We communicate with the dog clearly establishing consistent rules. We set the dog up for success so that instead of punishing him for doing something wrong, we spend our time teaching and practicing what is right. Just like an athlete practices his skills, we coach the dog until he can perform correctly on his own.

Prior to the session
: complete a registration to save time in the session

During the session:
assessment of dog and situation, training of dog, coaching of humans, development of goal oriented treatment plan, follow-up suggestions such as classes

Following the session: delivery of educational handouts, clarification of any questions, suggested continuation in classes, additional appropriate referrals

The session will address:
*Behavior: to teach the dog what he or she needs to know to replace an unwanted behavior with an acceptable behavior that gets him what he wants or needs (play, self-confidence, safety, attention, great life)
*Emotions: to help the dog develop a more positive association with his world which leads to relaxation, manners and a great life
*Physiology: to specifically address the nervous system and brain to help alleviate fear and anxiety
*Psychology: to develop confidence, build trust and heal past abuse, neglect and trauma
