My Story

My name is Megan and I am a Certified Behavior Consultant Canine (CBCC-KA) and a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) and the owner of Pin-Up Pup Training! I am also a Licensed Family Paws Parent Educator, Pet Professional Guild Pet Dog Ambassador Assessor and AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator. I’ve been working with dogs for over 18 years, and have always used strictly positive reinforcement training techniques. I also have a well rounded background including emergency room vet tech, grooming, boarding and doggie daycare!


What does it mean to be a Certified Behavior Consultant? I have completed over 300 hours experience in canine behavior consulting (on fear, phobias, compulsive behaviors, etc) and have several Veterinarians in the area that actively refer to me and am proud of my five star reviews!

I love the challenge of a tough problem and feel that one of my strengths is creative problem solving catered to you and your family! I finished my Bachelor’s Degree at Penn State in Psychology and plan on increasing my knowledge daily with books, conferences and workshops!

I love what I do and know that it shows any time I’m interacting with clients (of all kinds!) Please feel free to reach out to me, by email, Facebook, phone call or text, if you have any questions at all!​
