Maureen’s Resume

Awareness Centered Training - ACT is integrated into all training classes and private coaching sessions. ACT is available at all major booksellers in e-book and soft cover.

Enjoy hand-outs (excerpts from ACT at The Learning Zone and Media Articles like Children and Dogs, Therapeutic Chewing, Doggy Dinner, Calm in Chaos (de-stressing) and more …      

My inspiration is dogs. My vision is creating a training environment (refuge) where dogs and people can learn without fear or judgment. This isn’t magic. It is about living and learning with dogs that requires an open-mind and willingness to explore how another species communicates and teaching!

Gratefully, I am the co-founder of New England Pet Partners, Inc., a non-profit organization bringing people and pets together to enhance well-being and education with pet assisted therapy.  

I integrate similar training for therapy dogs into classes and private coaching sessions. All dogs need socialization and manners (SAM), and to be gradually and calmly introduced to a variety of sights, sounds and smells.  

If you are journeying here, you may have a dog, getting one, or know how they can change our lives. I have worked in corporate, have degrees and certifications, but dogs have changed my life!  

Whether your goal is to become a registered therapy team or simply enjoy a happy, healthy and confident relationship with your dog, consider ACT training or similar. The gentle, effective skills, techniques and insights, can easily be integrated into daily living, learning and loving dogs. It’s all about the relationship you want to create.

Let go for few moments, breathing in a deep nose-to-navel breath - ah-ha.

Let’s un-complicate training, reduce sensory overload, and discover how living and learning with dogs can change your life.


If you feed your dog 2X a day, you have 14 training opportunities every week!

Our intention is:

Taking a deep breath - Exhale - Enjoy the Journey

Liha-L-Ligo, Let it happen - Learn - Let it go
