Dr. Andi’s World Radio Show

Dr. Andi is diving into another polarizing topic this week, talking about No Kill policy with her Special Guest, Marissa Martino.  Where do you stand in the ‘no kill’ conversation? Is it actually the best policy? Does it solve anything? Or does it create more issues than it is supposed to solve? And what else could we acknowledge – and co-create – with shelter animals? Join the conversation as Dr. Andi and Marissa invite you to some new awareness and different possibilities.

Inspired by her adventures with her dog, Sully, Marissa Martino began her career working with our canine companions after attending the Academy of Dog Trainers in 2007.  After graduation, she started working for the Humane Society of Boulder Valley in Boulder, CO as their behavior & training coordinator.  During her time there, Marissa implemented a behavior modification program for shelter dogs with various special needs: such as fear, separation anxiety, resource guarding and dog-dog aggression.   

After 2 years of working at the shelter, Marissa moved back to San Francisco, where she worked as the Training Programs Manager of SF Puppy Prep.  She used her extensive shelter experience to educate the public on the power of socialization and prevention of behavioral issues for puppies.  

In 2011, she accepted the position as the Director of Behavior & Training for the East Bay SPCA in Oakland, CA.  She implemented a behavior modification program for the shelter dogs and cats as well as nine successful volunteer programs.  The program was recognized in Animal Sheltering magazine and in 2014, she presented at the Humane Society of United States Annual Conference on developing volunteer programs to help enrich the lives of shelter dogs.

In addition to owning Paws & Reward, Marissa is also the Behavior Manager at the Dumb Friends League in Denver.  Marissa is certified through the Academy for Dog Trainers and the Certification Council of Professional Dog Trainers.  She is also a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers.
