Behavior Consultations address behavior problems that are emotionally rooted and therefore different than obedience problems. We work with all the members of your family to find a solution that is best for all of you. 

Private Lessons teach your dog basic good manners in a less distracting environment than group classes and are more flexible with your schedule.


"Margaret  Johnson from Humaner Trainer is the quintessential dog trainer.  She is good with little dogs, big dogs, edgy dogs, calm dogs, designer dogs and rescue mutts.  In a word—she is a dog lover and it shows—she has studied her craft diligently and combined her knowledge with a wonderful sense of humor and the Austin area is fortunate to have her available for dog training." - Charlotte H.

They take care to customize the approach when training the trainer no matter the age, breed, size, personality or physical ability of the dog. Their patience with and love for all of their students (people and dogs alike) definitely makes training fun. Kili can hardly wait for her next training session." - Dawn & Wes B.

"I cannot thank you enough for your incredible wealth of knowledge and creative thinking. By my standards, Henry is perfect thanks to your insight." - Michelle H.

"The Humaner Trainer helped us train our dog to be a fantastic pet for our family.  Even more importantly, she taught us (and especially our daughter) how to train, productively spoil, and structure our relationship with our new companion.” - Isaac B.
