It's A Dog's World Training

Mary Oberson LVT, KPA-CTP

Mary Oberson LVT, KPA-CTP.  Manners, Tricks and Preschool instructor.





Mary is a Licensed Veterinary Technician and has worked in veterinary medicine for 27 years. She also has a BA in Psychology which led to an interest in animal behavior and training. Over the years, Mary pursued continuing education in animal behavior and training while hosting puppy socialization classes at her veterinary hospital in Minnesota. This blossomed into a second career as an instructor at a local dog training school where she taught puppy classes, basic obedience, and agility for nine years before moving to Washington in 2013.


She  competed in agility, obedience, and rally for 12 years with her Border Collie, Cami.  Cami earned multiple titles, but more importantly showed Mary what it means to work in partnership with a dog and build a relationship based on trust and respect. She also taught Mary that dog training requires a sense of humor and is supposed to be fun for both the dog and the trainer. Mary enjoys helping other people recognize and develop their relationships with their dogs in a manner that is fun for both partners.


She currently lives with three English Toy Spaniels named Wiggle, Beep (Beep Beep Zip Bang), and Zipper (Zip A Dee Doo Dah).  All  three train in various levels of obedience, rally, agility, pilates, nose work, freestyle dance, and tricks  to advance her training skills and to provide physical and mental stimulation for her dogs.
