We Make Sit Happen
We would love to lead you to your "perfect pet". Every animal is different; together we can work with each other and provide the guidance your dog or cat needs. Whether you’re thinking about getting an animal, have a new pet, or need to brush up on the basics, we are here to help.
“Until one has loved an animal a part of one’s soul remains unawakened”
Mission and Core Values
Maggie's Foundation will increase the Human-Animal Bond through creating a positive change in both the human owner and pets' lives.
We use positive reinforcement for both humans and animals in order to increase the relationship with training and the pet.
We accept all people. It doesn't matter your disability, race, political party, religion, or more. You are welcome at MFPT.
We pride ourselves on working with scientific skill to be the best version of ourselves to hand over to our clients.
We work with the client, their families, their pets, their veterinarian, and sometimes the human care team in order to have a cohesive training experience.
