About Our Trainers
Marjorie “The Dog Trainer” Satterfield is an award winning author, breeder, exhibitor, trainer and judge. Marj has been instructing professionally since 1974. She has trained dogs in all facets, including competitive obedience (all levels), conformation handling, stock dogs, Therapy dogs, service dogs (GFreedom Service Dogs, Hearing Dogs International), tracking, search and rescue and protection work. Additionally, she has started successful inmate dog training programs. As a 4-H leader for 20+ years she has a special interest in dogs and kids working together.
Part of Marj’s career history includes radio and TV shows, productions of Pet trade shows, numerous published articles and a soon-to-be-published book! She has one son (a great trainer in his own right) and shares her home with various rescue dogs, cats, birds, emus and various livestock.
Marj believes that very few dogs are “untrainable,” in fact, it’s often the owners’ behavior that is sending mixed messages to the dog, resulting in a “bad” dog. Is your dog impossible to house train, chewing your favorite shoes, barking at the wind, dashing out the door, terrified of thunderstorms (or earthquakes!), growling at strangers or suffering from separation anxiety?
Or maybe you, like so many others, are tired of getting dragged around the neighborhood by your furry friend who thinks that “heel” means to pull your arm out of its socket as he/she charges ahead on your walks.If so maybe it is time to “Call Marj”
A sensible loving approach and an acute understanding of dog behavior coupled with over 40 years of professional experience gives Marj a special insight to dog training.
Beth came to us through the Animal Behavior College mentor program. Her history includes head of Animal Control for the City of Glenpool. Beth has been with us for 4 years and is our devoted Pit Bull trainer/fancier (all though many of us own Pitts) She assists with our Board and Train dogs daily as well as our Service Dogs. She also is part of our Muskogee training center.
Look to Beth for sensible advice both at class and at our headquarters in Skiatook.
The quality of our trainers sets us apart from many of our competitors; I select my trainers/assistants from the many that apply by their passion for dogs and the difference that they can make by keeping dogs in their original homes through practical, sensible dog training.
We are “Anything but Ordinary” dog training.
