Marsha Tonkinson is a Certified Professional Master Dog Trainer and Instructor for over 15 years. Marsha is also an American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen, and AKC Puppy Star Evaluator. In February 2014 I was the first scholarship recipients to attend a training class with Cesar Millan at his Dog Psychology Center in California. Marsha also started the Arkansas Paws in Prison Program in North Central Arkansas where she worked with male inmates for over four and half years instructing them on skills from obedience to service dogs and courtroom dogs. In my programs I believe that each dog and owner deserves the best training we have to offer, that's why we use methods that are safe and humane. We also work with each family member this includes kids to the grandparents everyone should be part of the dogs training program. Marsha loves working with her own dogs on a daily basis from physical stimulation to using mental exercises to keep the dogs thinking and using their own senses. Marsha has a passion for helping Veterans train PTSD dogs.
