pranaDOGS – embracing and celebrating the energy that makes dogs, dogs
Certified Professional Dog Trainer, Executive Director and Founder of pranaDOGS. Marcy is focused on improving the quality of life for dogs – specifically mixed breed and shelter/rescue dogs. She has spent the majority of her career working in different dog fields, expanding her knowledge and giving her a well-rounded awareness of dogs as a whole. She specializes in helping traumatized dogs get their feet under them and works hand-in-hand with La Plata County Humane Society in Durango, CO.
After spending years donating her time and skills to humane organizations, Marcy founded pranaDOGS non-profit, so she can continue her work and help more in need.
“Many people wanted to donate the cost of training an animal for their own humane society or rescue organization. As a non-profit we are able to help those dogs without having their organizations incur any expenses.”
After years of working with dogs in her own home and in shelters and rescues directly, Marcy purchased a 20-acre parcel of land to expand her offerings. Located just outside Durango, pranaDOGS Behavior and Rehab Center includes acres of dog-friendly land, a 4′ acre confidence course and plans to build much more.
