Meet the trainer

Hello I am Rebecca Markle, ABCDT.  Owner and trainer of Proper Pups Dog Training, LLC.  I graduated from Animal Behavior College with honors in 2011.  I am also certified with the AKC as an evaluator for the Canine Good Citizen program. 


I opened Proper Pups Dog Training in 2015 with the hopes of keeping dogs out of shelters due to behavior issues.

I have always had a passion for animals.  I love working with dogs and seeing the look of joy on their pet parents face when they are able to communicate with each other more effectively.  

Being a dog trainer has also helped me run  successful boarding and daycare services.  I know pet parents sometimes feel bad going to work or leaving their pet while they go on vacation. 


You can have complete peace of mind when your dog is with me.  They are treated like family and have their own little vacation.  




"Our dog Lincoln just finished basic obedience training and also recently boarded with Rebecca - he has learned so much and she is so patient and kind with him! We are looking forward to working with her again!!"

Graduate of basic obedience course and a guest for boarding

"Rebecca was great with our great dane! He is a big boy at 8mos and she made him feel like family. She sent wonderful pictures and updates and will definitely be using Proper Pups Dog Training for future boarding needs!"


"Rebecca has watched our dogs probably a dozen times and they are always excited to go to her house!  She takes great care of them and they always come home tired and happy.  I used to get nervous about then staying in a kennel, but now I can relax when I am away, knowing they are in a comfortable and safe home environment."



"I was so happy with the level of care provided for my dogs!  We had photo updates, the dogs were not left in crates all day.  It genuinely made our trip better knowing our dogs were safe and happy.  Rebecca treated them like her own and I will definitely be bringing them back when we travel!  I highly recommend Proper Pups!"


Had a great experience leaving our dog here for 8 days! It was hard to leave our dog-but he had a great time! The owner was very responsive & sent pictures every day! Our whole family felt very secure knowing he was in good hands.


"THE BEST!  Rebecca looked after our dog Rex for a few days over Thanksgiving break 2021.  We were a little apprehensive as he normally stays in the kennel in town.  Rebecca put our minds at ease, sending pics and updates daily - Rex had a ball, and we felt comfortable because we knew he was being well cared for.  Thanks Rebecca and Proper Pups Dog Training!"
