WELCOME TO YOU, ME & A DOG
My name is Hadley Allen-Maris, and my mission is to help you achieve the relationship you want with your dog by creating the behaviors you need. My proven approach has helped dogs and owners with everything from making the walk safer and more enjoyable, to creating calm at home and the perfect pup to take anywhere. Contact me today to get started!
BEHAVIORAL ASSESSMENT AND TRAINING
- $150 - 2 hour consultation
Jumping, barking, excitement, avoidance, insecurity, reactivity, chewing/destroying things, pulling and lunging on leash... These are common unwanted behaviors that can test your patience and your enjoyment of your canine companion. I can help you understand why these behaviors happen and how to redirect your dog using techniques based in how dogs learn best. A more fulfilled and calmer canine is on the way!
DAY TRAINING AND BOARD & TRAIN
- Packages available - Contact us for rates
Day Training is an opportunity for me to help you condition new behaviors in your dog by spending a full day or days with me and my pack. I'll get your dog 90% of the way there and show you how to get your dog's behavior to 100%.
When your dog needs some intensive time to jump start their training, I also offer Board and Train - day and night structured intervention for your pup. Don’t worry - you’ll still be involved in sessions during your dog’s stay.
DOG HANDLING FOR KIDS AND TEENS
Calm and Confident at Any Age
- $35 for 30 minute sessions
- $65 for 60 minute sessions
Leading a dog with respect and trust is powerful at any age. Dog handling requires skills like focus and confidence and naturally builds self-esteem, awareness of body language, the ability to manage emotions and practice impulse control. Kids are often more instinctual and more agile learners than adults, and creating a relationship with a dog is so motivating, it doesn't even feel like work. If you know someone ages 10-16 who might benefit from these skills, give You, Me & a Dog a call.

TRAINER & OWNER
You, Me & a Dog started as many small businesses do, from a love of dogs and a dream. My dream is to help dogs and their people co-exist more happily and better fulfilled.
I’ve been helping dogs change unwanted behavior for years, and have studied with nationally- and internationally-renowned dog experts Cesar Millan and Colleen Steckloff. I have a background in education, human and dog psychology, and dog handling, and can provide an experience tailored to you and your dog’s needs.
This work starts with you, the human, but you don’t have to do it alone. That’s why I named this business You, Me & a Dog, because we’re in this together.
“Humans are the only species that will follow an unbalanced leader.”
