Summary: 

Nancy S. Fitzgerald, already a Certified Professional Dog Trainer-Knowledge & Skills Assessed (CPDT-KSA) and a Certified Behavior Consultant - Canine (CBCC-KA), is pleased to announce that she is now also a Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner (KPA CTP). Nancy is the owner of Positive Results Dog Training LLC, which has been operating since 2008 in Wilmington, Delaware. Nancy offers group classes for puppy and adult dogs in multiple locations in the Wilmington / Newark area, as well as in-home training and behavior modification.

Bio: 

Nancy's initial interest in training arose in 1999 when she began volunteering at a local shelter and subsequently wound up adopting a difficult dog with multiple behavior problems. Her dog Manray's aggression issues spurred her to begin attending training workshops and seminars and reading as much as she could about positive reinforcement training. Nancy soon moved from volunteering at the shelter to working part-time with the dogs and providing counseling to perspective adopters, eventually working in almost every department of the shelter during her long tenure with Delaware Humane Association. Nancy has completed multiple academies with internationally-recognized trainer and writer Pat Miller and was proud to have Manray, the dog who was the impetus for her training career, be featured in Ms. Miller's book "Do Over Dogs." She has earned her CPDT-KSA and CBCC-KA credentials and is an associate member of the IAABC (International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants).

Since its founding in 2008, Positive Results Dog Training has expanded its group class offerings to three different locations in northern Delaware. Nancy also services select surrounding areas in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland with in-home consultations for behavior issues and private training. In addition, she teaches several pet dog classes a week at the Dog Training Center of Chester County in Exton, Pennsylvania. 

Nancy shares her home with multiple rescued dogs (currently five, with the occasional foster puppy). She dabbles in agility and Rally-O with her youngest dog, Nick, and enjoys trick training with her KPA partner, Scarlett, while her seniors (Justice, Maverick and Chelsea) enjoy long walks in between naps on the couch.

Services Offered: 

Positive Results Dog Training offers flexible modular classes for puppies and adult dogs at three different locations in Wilmington and Newark, Delaware, and recently began offering classes in Glen Mills, Pennsylvania. Private training is available in-home with special support programs offered for recent rescue or shelter adoptions.
