Pam's Dog Academy


Pamela Johnson is a clicker dog trainer and educator with a B.S. degree in Kinesiology and a M.A in Education Curriculum Development. As a full time middle school PE teacher, Pamela feels that many of the skills she uses to teach children transfer nicely to training dogs.

Her passion is using force free training methods for behavior modification, as well as training complex behaviors and tricks. She thrives on the challenge of developing creative new ways to train dogs.

Pamela believes that every dog she works with teaches her more about training, patience and most importantly, how to be a better person.

Pamela travels presenting Canine Freestyle, Disc dog trick training seminars in North America and Canada. She traveled to Vancouver with Emily Larlham to team-teach a Canine Freestyle seminar. Pamela has also started giving seminars in Rattlesnake Avoidance using force free methods.

She is known around the world for her training videos on her Youtube channel "pamelamarxsen." She posts free tutorial videos in hopes that more people discover the magic of clicker training and learn that there is a way to train every behavior with force free methods! Her business Pam’s Dog Academy is based in San Diego, California. She is a CPDT-KA, a professional member of the APDT as well as the PPG.
