Where some pixie dust and training can make your dreams for a well-trained dog come true

Meet the Trainer

Miranda Genetti was a member of the Pennsylvania National Guard, and was discharged as a disabled Veteran. Due to her injury, she became a certified dog trainer in May of 2016 with the help of the VA’s Vocational Rehabilitation program. She has competed in American Kennel Club (AKC) conformation dog shows from the age of 9 to the present with her own Miniature American Eskimo and Belgian Malinois, as well as showing other breeds for professional handlers. While at the Purina National Dog Show, she won Best of Breed two years in a row, showing on television for Thanksgiving Day. She is currently competing with her Belgian Malinois, who has titles in Rally and obedience and points to her championship. Miranda also trains dogs for scent detection, evidence recovery, and agility. She is able to teach all aspects of dog sports and is a Canine Good Citizen (CGC) evaluator. With all of her dog training experience, she is working to train service dogs that comply to the ADA and ADI guidelines.

Our Formula



Any behavior your dog acts out must have a consequence within 1.3 seconds in order for your dog to associate their behavior with the consequence, whether positive or negative. After consistent training, when you mark “good,” your dog will keep doing what they’re doing until they get a reward, and when you mark “no,” your dog will stop in their tracks because they’re expecting a correction.



Positive motivation and rewards are anything your dog likes. Rewards must be physical, since praising your dog is not enough. However, a small treat or petting your dog can go a long way. Negative motivation is something you dog doesn’t like. Trainers call the delivery of negative stimulation a “correction” from an approved training collar.



Consistency is the key ingredient to clean communication between you and your dog. That means promptly reacting the same way every time to any significant behavior your dog acts out. Rules must be black and white for your dog. If you are inconsistent, your dog will test the rules more often to try and figure out when they can and can’t get away with things.


Trainer Background

Miranda Genetti graduated first and top of her class at the Tom Rose School for professional dog trainers. Previously in the dog arena doing conformation, rally, obedience, and agility. She has been seen before on TV for the Purina National Championship with her own dogs.

My fiancé and I adopted a Rottweiler from a shelter back in March. Due to the untimely circumstances of having to put down my 18 year old beagle the day before we were to bring Bella home, Bella and I got off to a rocky start. My fiancé and I reached out to Miranda to get some help in disciplining Bella. Miranda did a great job assessing Bella’s potential and was very honest with us that Bella required training, but the tips and tricks she taught us were very simple and easy to put into practice at home. With consistency, Bella has become such a great addition to our home. We practice with Bella every day and we want to extend our thanks to Miranda! She took a sad experience and turned it into a positive one with her training expertise and guidance. Bella and I are now best buddies and certainly can’t imagine a life without her. Thank you Neverland K-9 Institute!
