Thank you so much for hosting us this evening. Bringing us dog care professionals together for a wonderful evening. Your hospitality and generosity was very touching. I can't wait for next time.

Great trainer who was patient, calm and always willing to answer any questions. Mocha and I will continue to work on the techniques we were taught. I would highly recommend Marianna to any dog owner. More...

Our experience with Lily and Hana was excellent. We received expert and caring instruction and advice, and our relationship with our younger dog (who was the reason we attended) improved tremendously. Definitely worthwhile for us! (And Lily and Hana loved it too!) More...

Mira, our 14 month old King Charles spaniel was quite a handful at times - way too much energy! I brought her to Middle Earth in hopes of settling her down a bit. Marjanna worked with Mira for 5 weeks and then we introduced our 5 1/2 year old cavalier to the final 3 classes. It was a great opportunity to deal with issues between an older dog and a young one. It was also during tis time that I noticed Mira being more settled at home, coming promptly when she was called and just generally having a more mature manner. Thanks Marjanna! More...

I am so impressed at how quickly and how much my 4 yr old lab cross, Zyla, learned in such a short time (8wk Basic Obedience training) at Middle Earth Canine Academy. Zyla is a large, energetic and happy dog but really lacked manners. Marjanna taught us all the basic commands like sit, stay, down, heel, come, and much more which has really helped Zyla to learn self-control. Marjanna was always very patient (even when Zyla would jump up on her or the table!), and also very knowledgeable. She was very attentive to all my concerns and helpful with specific issues I was having. I learned so much about dog behaviours and expectations for my mature dog. Plus the training space is very relaxing and comfortable. Can’t thank you enough! Zyla will miss the treats!! More...

We took our two rescue dogs, a Saint Bernard Husky brother and sister rescue duo, to Middle Earth Canine Academy. When we began, the dogs were impossible to walk, pulling like crazy and no manners whatsoever. Marjanna gave us the tools to start teaching our pups what what expected of them, and within a few weeks we were able to enjoy our walks together. Marjanna showed taught us how to be patient and build trust, and give us some tips and tricks to start building a lasting relationship of trust with our pups. We still have a ways to go, but Middle Earth Canine Academy has definitely provided us with a solid foundation. More...

We are so pleased with the progress of our puppy. We are grateful for all the help, advice and guidance from Middle Earth Canine Academy. Marjanna has demonstrated so well how to train our dog with patience and a sense of calm. Our dog, Finn, knows her as the "treat lady" and he will miss his classes with her I am sure. Finn has come a long way and we feel well-equipped with some knowledge to carry on with our training. We are thankful that Marjanna has always made herself available for help. It is very obvious that she loves what she does. Thank you for all your patience, knowledge and training! I'm not sure who received more training; our dog or us! Thank you! More...

Middle Earth Canine Academy was very good. While we'd had many dogs in the past this was our first experience with rescue. Our boy had anxiety issues and very intelligent hyper sensitive to noise and his surrounding. M has a wonderful effect on the dogs. Her calming energy was exactly what our boy needed. We learned some tools and games that would help to use sense of smell and tracing to help use up some of his nervous energy. Giving lots of reassurance all the time. M also allowed us to bring our 12 week old pup (with no anxieties etc) so that he could learn the puppy skills at the same time. This program would be particularly good.for those that have never had a dog and/or have little training knowledge. While training was done in a fairly small place it seemed to work. When he did get outside for training I felt I learned a bit more. Thanks M! More...

We are so excited and pleased with the results we’ve seen from attending Marjanna’s classes. Our two rescue dogs are into their third training program with Middle Earth and are showing significant improvements. Our walks are much more enjoyable, we’re learning a ton of new tricks and games to play with our dogs, and we’re learning how to better understand them. We’re developing a strong language with our dogs that they’re really responding to. The best part is that our dogs LOVE going to training and seeing Marjanna. We would highly recommend her services. She’s very competitively priced for one on one training. More...

We were astounded and thrilled by Marjanna's lessons, insight, and approach. Our dog, Nico, who is a young stubborn basset, responded immediately to lessons. Of particular note is how well he walks with us now as compared to how he yanked us off our feet before. The focus on educating the owners in how dogs think so that you can connect with them in a way that makes sense to them is what sets this training apart. You are not taught to shout orders at your dog, you are taught to earn their cooperation, which seems to work better. We were expecting our first child at the time the lessons occurred and Marjanna altered her lesson plan in order to ensure we were equipped help Nico adapt quickly happily to the change. Highly recommended. More...

Our heartfelt thanks for all you have done for Maeve and for me these past weeks. Having just graduated from your Puppy Kindergarten course, Maeve has come on in leaps and bounds. She has gone from an impulsive, excitable puppy to a patient and thoughtful pup. The real beauty of your academy lies in the foundation of education versus training which means that the dog and owner both learn how to communicate and work together. So simple and logical yet nobody else does this!

I cannot recommend your services enough and we look forward to working with you on an ongoing basis throughout Maeve's life.

Our family is very pleased with the results we got from enrolling our pug Penni in puppy kindergarten. Marjanna was an excellent teacher and educated the family in parallel to educating our pup. For anyone who wants to see results in a short period should take their dog to Middle Earth Canine Academy. Penni thoroughly enjoyed herself and will certainly be back to take the next step in basic obedience.

Highly recommend!

Doug and Sophia!

My experience was beyond amazing. The way that she helps train both our dogs and ourselves is very interesting, she has you become much more confident in understanding what your dogs learning ways are. Within the first 2 weeks I know noticed a change in my dog, I feel if it weren't for the help of Middle Earth my dog and myself would not be as happy as we are, he now listens to me on que and is very responsive, I look forward to using all her class lessons in the future Thank you so very muchAshley and Walter More...

I cannot say enough good things about this business! Working with Marjanna has improved our knowledge on how to understand our dog and as a result our pup and our bond with him has come so far in only 8 sessions. Highly recommended.

Marjanna's depth of understanding of our dog amazed us lesson after lesson. We have tried other trainers and "group lessons" never worked well for us as you only get partial attention to your dog and it's needs. We found the private lessons affordable and MUCH more effective. The stone house she teaches in is really nice too! More...

Marjanna is wonderful. She cares for your furry friend like they are her own. My little senior pup, Thor, is mostly deaf, partially blind & came from a puppy mill. But he fell in love with Marjanna immediately. She curved her training to make it appropriate to Thor's abilities. He thrived with her instructions & I cannot rave enough about how much I was able to take away. Thor & I now communicate very well & have a fun relationship thanks to Marjanna's help. I highly recommend everyone with a dog of any size, any ability (or disability) do at least one class with Middle Earth Canine Academy. You will not be disappointed. More...

Working with Marjanna and Middle Earth Canine Academy was the best experience I have ever had with any dog training. Marjanna is kind and compassionate and an absolute pleasure to learn from and is very knowledgeable. My baby girl Adora was hyper and jumped and was unruly but after 8 lessons she graduated a completely different dog she is so well behaved and no longer jumps and I couldn’t have done it without Marjanna’s help and I think she will now be a great companion to my Son coming this Sept. if your looking for training for your pooch look no further this is the best place to be, your in good hands!
