About Us

Diana J Marahrens, B.S. CPDT-KA, CTDI

Diana's training philosophy is to use positive reinforcement to modify your pet's behavior and  create a communication system between you and your pet. The goal is to build a long term relationship between your family and your pet. To build this bond an understanding must be gained of your pet's behaviors and how they communicate with us. Pets donít speak English but they communicate using body language. Learning a pet's body language helps us communicate effectively. With patience, timing, and consistency you will have a pet you enjoy!

Diana has a B.S. Science Degree from Virginia Tech.  She has been actively training Dogs since 2000 and has been internationally certified as a trainer since 2003 by the Certification Council of Pet Dog Trainer.  She holds additional professional certifications from the Association of Professional Dog Trainers and Do More With Your Dogs.

Continuing Education:
Diana attends professional seminars and conferences frequently to stay up to date with the most current research and training trials in pet behavior and training. Her methods effectively reduce stress and effectively treat problem behaviors for pets and people alike, as well as teaching inter-species communication to support the animal and human bond.  

Personal Life:
Diana and her husband Bob reside in Williamsburg VA where they  share their home with 3 cats and 3 dogs, and a small fish pond.

She has been offering professional pet training to the Williamsburg VA area since 2003.  Prior to becoming a professional pet trainer Diana was a Certified Landscape Designer and Horticulturist. She always had a special spot in her heart for animals and has turned that passion to helping other fully enjoy living with their animals.

Her hobbies, besides being with animals,  include biking, gardening, swimming and riding her jet ski!
