Dog Trainers

At the Humane Society, we only recommend using positive reinforcement training, and trainers who exclusively use these methods and avoid any aversive techniques. Our staff Dog Trainer Lee Phelan offers a Saturday morning positive training course. Please email him at lphelan@memphishumane.org to learn more. There is also a professional organization called Positive Trainers of the Mid-South, which is a great place to start in looking for a dog trainer. Keep in mind that there may be positive dog trainers not involved with this group, so it’s good to do your own research. But make sure they use only positive training methods.
