Who I am and how I got here...

The DOG PRO (Sean C. Marler)

From the very start, I've always been a dog lover. My background has mainly been with boxers, but over the years, I have learned to appreciate all breeds, to include those of "unknown ancestry." I sincerely believe every dog is unique, and with the right amount of love, attention, play, and respect...combined with training designed with that particular dog's personality and instincts in mind...all dogs can be great human companions.

I had the privilege of serving in the US Air Force for 20 years, then decided it was time for a change. I knew I wanted to somehow make a difference, so decided to dedicate myself to helping dogs become more productive (and happy) members of families (and society), allowing doggie parents to enjoy their dogs even more. I got my certification from Animal Behavior College, which required five months of intensive training on dog behaviors and training techniques.

I'm in a unique situation now. I'm in the process of researching opening a boarding business, so I have ample time to give to dogs. Although I am hoping to have a "facility" soon, for now, I work from my home. The advantage for you is that I will only accept 1-2 dogs at a time, and I will give them my full attention as if they were my own.

Many people ask why I don't have a dog of my own now. That's a longer story, but rest assured, I will have my own special buddy again very soon. (I miss you greatly, sweet Niki)
