Marni Center

Owner and Trainer, ABC-DT

After earning a Bachelor’s degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Marni knew that she wanted to work with animals. She planned to study Wildlife Conservation in grad school but after adopting two dogs of her own she decided that training dogs to be well mannered family members would be a more rewarding career choice for her and went on to complete a Dog Trainer certification through Animal Behavior College. 

Since starting her own business in 2012 (Pawsitive Obedience/Pawsitive Outlook), she has worked with hundreds of clients helping to teach skills needed for managing and training their dogs. Her training techniques follow LIMA (least intrusive, minimally aversive) style and are focused on positive reinforcement, management skills, and enhancing the communication and bond between dogs and their people. She has trained through all types of behavior from puppy basic manners to aggressive behavior modification. She continues her education with webinars, seminars, podcasts, meetings with other like minded trainers and staying up to date on the newest research. Most recently she obtained a Fear Free certification.

Marni currently has a sweet young mixed breed pup named Fennec. She also has two pet rabbits, Ziggy and Biscuit and lives in Denver. When she has free time, Marni loves to spend it with her pets, hiking, playing board games, traveling or socializing with friends.
