About Pam


Pam Francis-Tuss is a certified dog trainer with extensive experience under her belt, and more importantly, an undying passion for our 4-legged best pals.

The Sacramento, CA-based professional is the entrepreneur behind Obedient Pups – the only trainer in the area to offer Day Training services!

Pam believes in respecting owners and their beloved pets: this is why she supports the association for Force-free professionals and values reward-based training strategies and positive reinforcement techniques that have a great impact on the psyche of your dog and lasting good behaviors. The best thing about reward-based dog training is that it can be adapted for any behavior and any breed. But understand that the reward doesn’t have to always be food. It can be praise, a toy or just going outside to play. With a good understanding of how your dog is motivated you can do almost anything from basic training to agility training.

Pam spent 32 years working in the medical field and when she finally retired she started doing what made her the happiest…working with dogs. Pam has always had a dog in her life and can’t imagine life without one (or two). Pam has been married for 31 years and has one awesome grown son. She currently has two dogs, her son’s dog Cooper (a 8 year Old English Sheepdog/Boxer mix) and Maddy (a 4 year old mini pit mix). Both are Pam’s best friends and her true loves.
