Sue Marlais

Dog Trainer and Behavioral Consultant

When Sue Marlais isn’t working her day job as the deputy Chief Information Officer for Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, she is a trainer for Dog Dynamics, Inc. Sue’s heart is committed to rescue dogs and to people in need, and her credentials speak for themselves. She works closely animal rescue organizations helping rescued dogs be more adoptable, and she opens up her home to foster puppies in need. She has two rescued Chihuahuas, that were “foster failures” Jack and Bella, that are now trained for agility. The rascally pair are also therapy dogs through Tri-Valley Humane Canine Comfort and they regularly visit senior living facilities bringing joy with a happy tail. Sue’s little Bella also visits Hospice organizations where Bella brings comfort to last stage patients. Her third little spitfire mix named Indy came to her with three legs and a broken spirit. He now lives up to his name as he races around her property, confident and frisky as ever. She has rehabilitated dogs to go on to find their forever homes, through her private training, and board and train services. Dog Dynamics would not be the same without her, because she infuses her training with her infectious positive spirit, especially on her agility field. Her ranch is filled with dogs, cats, chickens and the occasional deer performing down stays on her field.
