Welcome to Learning Tails!
I'm glad you're here! My name is Ally Mentlik and I'm an honors graduate of Jean Donaldson's The Academy for Dog Trainers. I'm a lifelong animal lover, I've spent many years involved with rescue and shelter work, and I can't wait to help you and your dog reach your goals.
I'm dedicated to force-free, humane, reward-based training methods. Together we'll learn, train, grow, and hopefully have a little fun along the way.
I value education, kindness, and empathy. I vow to continue learning, to always treat others with compassion, and to provide my clients with the most up to date, evidence-based information to best help both ends of the leash.
When I'm not training dogs, you can find me at home with our animals, cleaning horse stalls, entertaining cats, tending to my plants, volunteering with rescue pups, and spending time with my husband, friends, and family.
