Successful Dog Training through Positive Reinforcement
Educanine takes the guess work out of finding the best dog trainer for you and your canine companion in the greater Allentown area. Kailly Muthard, senior CPDT-KA certified dog trainer, applies evidence-based, positive reinforcement training, making use of a simple, yet highly effective tool called a clicker or a verbal marker that helps your dog understand and respond to your behavioral requests.
We do not use aversive tools like shock collars or prong/chain collars. We also do not use physical corrections of any kind. We simply reward your dog for good behavior.
Your dog wants to please you and it can be frustrating for you both when communication is unclear. Repetitive positive reinforcement helps your dog intuitively learn the benefits of good behavior while redirecting them from incompatible behaviors we don't like.
You'll enjoy creating a positive relationship with your dog and your dog will love being an active participant in his training.

Kailly Muthard, CPDT-KA
Owner | Senior Trainer
Kailly Muthard started her journey training dogs in 2013. In 2014 she was invited to complete a 3 year apprenticeship program at a local dog training studio. During that time she also attended and graduated from the Karen Pryor Academy for Training and Behavior, in 2016, as a Dog Trainer Professional. Kailly is an AKC STAR Puppy and Canine Good Citizen evaluator. In 2019, Kailly was given the designation of Certified Professional Dog Trainer (Knowledge Assessed) by the nationally recognized Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT). Kailly has a Master's Degree in Social Work from Bryn Mawr College.
"Since getting my first dog as an adult in 2012 and working to train him and address his behavioral issues, I have been fascinated with how canines learn. I decided to pursue dog training as a career after spending years taking training classes with my own dogs and seeing how much fun we both had doing it. There is such gratification when you see the 'Ah-ha!' moment on your dog's face when he just gets it. It's like you both learn to speak a new language. I now want to bring that knowledge and joy to others while they work with their own dogs."
Kailly's goal is to be an ambassador for clicker training and to reach those who are struggling to see lasting behavior change in their dogs. Kailly hopes that others will experience, through her instruction, an improved appreciation and understanding of their pet's learning abilities and, of course, have fun doing it!
