Martha Bernal

Certified Professional Dog Trainer - Tampa, FL

I use positive reinforcement to get the desired behavior in dogs. It is my  believe that harsh punishment may make inappropriate behaviors worse and if continuously applied it may encourage aggressive behavior.


I am the proud owner of two golden retrievers and have dedicated over 14 years to fostering and caring for dogs.Throughout  the years, I have learned to understand dog body language and apply  positive reinforcement techniques to obtain the desired behaviors in  dogs.
