Have you ever been told this?

It’s advice that is widely used to prevent back injuries, but there’s a better way to do that. 

Believe it our not, your spine is actually designed to BEND. The reason people get hurt while bending over is because they’ve lost mobility in their spine. 

So, realistically, a more sustainable solution is to work on increasing mobility in the spine so you can actually use it without fear of injury.

And that’s what we do!

Do you notice yourself restricting your spine when you bend or lift anything? If so, let’s make your spine more like a spine.

If we haven't met yet, allow me introduce myself to you.....my name is Suzanne Parker and I am the Owner of Mac Dog Trainer. 

I have lived in Mcminnville for a little over 3 years now and love it here in Mac, and Oregon. I am from Laguna Beach, California which is a small beach town and  artist colony in Southern California. Growing up in Laguna was very much Iike the community of Mcminnville. We had an ebb and flow of tourism during the year, but Summer was the busiest time for our little town, very much like Mcminnville. The people in Laguna knew each other and waived to greet you while walking down the street. It was a small town with a big heart. I loved it & have searched my entire life to feel that love of community again, & I have found that in Mcminnville. 

I have over 25 years of Dog training, dog physiology, dog care & love of dogs. I  was the owner of a business called Oc Tails on Trails & Tails on Trails. I  trained, exercised & boarded dogs that were in my Pack. The TAILS ON TRAILS Pack dogs (12 of them daily) were trained to run off leash for up to 8 miles a day on trails & listen to me, & the 2 other Pack leaders. The dogs were whistle recall trained, & highly socialized. They were amazing dogs & I miss them all. 

I have taken my experience and GREAT LOVE of dogs & I opened the doors of Mac Dog Trainer in January 2019, smack dab in the middle of COVID! I offered outdoor and VERY socially distanced classes for all of the Covid pups that flooded our homes & community. I helped families to train their puppies & dogs in basic obedience, & helped them with problems they were struggling with their dogs. Since 2019 I have been able to expand my knowledge and refine my skills. I have a passion for dog training & helping people and their dogs & I have never been happier.....I always say that I love what I do & do what I love. 

Let me know if I can help you &  your family with your puppy or dog. 

I offer:
Basic Obedience Classes every 4 weeks for both dogs and puppies. 

In -home behavior modification 

Board & Training in my home 1 dog at a time

Modification of leash reactivity

Dog aggression

Socialization training

This is a question we get asked ALL THE TIME...

It really just depends on your vehicle and what it needs for your specific driving style + usage in order to stay protected. 

Ceramic coating covers your entire vehicle and gives it the essential protection it needs. 

Paint protection, however, is a bit more expensive and is great for those areas that take on more of a beating in comparison to the rest of your vehicle. 

For example, if you have a truck, it's going to get a lot of rocks, dirt, and mud flung up against the areas near the tires. That would be a place you would want to get paint protection for in addition to ceramic coating. 

But, say you have a sedan and don't go off roading a whole lot, and typically stick to city driving (versus commuting or driving over mountain passes), ceramic coating would be a more cost-effective, practical option. 

If you’re looking for the ultimate protection for your vehicle you can pair the two together. Paint protection film for the high impact areas + ceramic coating on the rest of the vehicle. 

So, to answer your question, it depends on what you're going to be using your vehicle for and the things it might encounter while you're driving.
