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

Sep 22 6 week Obedience and Good Manners


Sep 22 (Dogs do NOT attend the first class)
Sept 22, 29. Oct 6 (skip 13, 20) 27. Nov (skip 3) 10, 17 from noon – 1:00pm
Location: private home in Lakewood near Wadsworth and Alameda (exact address will be sent just before class)
RSVP to mishamayfoundation@gmail.com

Misha May’s Obedience and Good Manners is based on behavior science with effective, force-free, positive techniques. We teach you how dogs learn and how to teach them what they need to know to be good companions.

Common cues such as sit, stay, down, wait and settle are covered, as well as tips for leash walking and ways to reinforce desirable behaviors already being offered naturally such as sitting instead of jumping. We will demonstrate training approaches such as luring, naming, verbal and hand signals, while observing and discussing canine body language - the key to understanding dogs!

Misha May Foundation was voted Best Dog Training in Denver for three years in a row because we consistently teach people how to help their dogs learn to live in the human world, while respecting the individuality of each dog and of each human / canine team.

Registration required at mishamayfoundation@gmail.com. Reserve your spot by paying the $150 fee using paypal or credit card with the donation button at www.mishamayfoundation.org

Foster dogs with non-profit rescues and shelters, not already adopted or spoken for, may attend this class for FREE with their foster / handler. Our goal is to give these FREE spots to those who need help to become more adoptable. Please have the head of the rescue or shelter RSVP to mishamayfoundation@gmail.com and complete the registration form to confirm eligibility of the dog. If you plan to adopt the dog you are bringing, please pay the $150 fee in order to save the FREE spots for eligible dogs.
