Hello, my name is Amy Braschler. All of my life, I have loved all animals and felt a calling to work with them.
When I was young, I was blessed to have numerous dogs. I loved to work with them so much that when my cousins and I played house, I wanted to be the family dog. As I grew (and realized I was better suited to being the human than the dog) I began to take dogs to obedience classes to learn better training techniques and learn to teach my dogs new behaviors. Soon, I had trained several dogs with the help of other trainers. My family and neighbors started to notice how well behaved my animals were and how their animals seemed to react to my training in a positive manner. So, in natural progression during my teenage years, I started working with friend's and family's pets. I not only trained dogs, but horses as well. Out of my love for animals sprang a desire for a career in the animal industry upon graduation.
I worked as a veterinary technician for several veterinarians in southern Missouri, and I also professionally trained horses. All the while, I researched different techniques of training for animals and attended seminars and workshops on the subject, perfecting my style of training. In 2006, I took the big step of establishing the Well-Mannered Dog Obedience Academy. Since that time, I have watched the academy grow from one class per week in West Plains, MO at All Pet and Equine to numerous classes and private lessons held at All Pet and Equine in West Plains, Mountain Home, AR, Thayer, MO, and now at my new facility in Doniphan, MO.
I am an Approved AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator, a Tester / Observer for Therapy Dogs, Inc., a member of the North Arkansas Kennel Club, and a member of the South Central Missouri Kennel Club. It has been a joy to work with so many wonderful dogs and their owners over the years, I love being able to help dogs and their owners work out their issues in order to have a more positive relationship.
I love working with animals, especially dogs, and my goal for every client is to build the relationship between you and your dog so you both can experience the joy that comes from a strong, well balanced owner / pet relationship. Thank you for considering me to help you with your pet, please contact me so together, we can shape your dog into a well-mannered dog!
