Meet the Founders
Dr. Chris Pachel, Kathy Sdao, Barrie Finger, Lynn Ungar, and Marissa Martino
All of the founders, in addition to being experienced dog trainers and behavior consultants who have devoted years to studying the art and science of positive training, are people who feel a deep calling toward building more functional, creative and respectful relationships between people: one-on-one, as communities and as societies. We are grounded in a variety of spiritual and wisdom traditions and some of us have studied Marshall Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication. All of us think the world would just work better if we could apply the things we know about shaping positive behavior change to...pretty much anything. Maybe you feel the same way and would like to explore together with us?
