360 Animal Training and Behaviour
Work Richmond Va 23233 USA Work Phone: 804.506.0550


Servicing the Greater Richmond, VA area (Richmond City, Henrico, Short Pump, Glen Allen, and Highland Springs through to Bon Air), or online training, and behaviour consultations.

My name is Joanne Bignoux McMahon, KPA-CTP, CPDT-KA, and I’m a certified professional dog trainer with 12+ years of experience, and 6 years of experience as a Veterinary Assistant. I’m passionate about and dedicated to helping humans and dogs, or cats, live harmoniously.
My strong passion for animal welfare guides me to provide excellent care to creature companions and exceptional customer service to pet guardians. Throughout my years of shelter, retail, and private dog training experience, I have worked with a multitude of breeds, sizes, and temperaments.
I’m committed to improving behaviour to allow more freedom and exploration for both animals and clients. My techniques are strictly based on contemporary scientific understanding of animal behaviour.

As the owner and trainer of 360 Animal Training and Behaviour, I focus on teaching desired behaviours with easily achievable steps through rewarding and reinforcing the cat’s or dog’s active participation and cooperation in the training process. I specialize in enrichment techniques with cats or dogs; preventing boredom to alleviate problem behaviours. Additionally, I have extensive experience in addressing coming when called, leash walking manners, crate/ carrier training, advanced manners, socialization, inappropriate furniture scratching, and trick training for cats or dogs. I have also successfully provided American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen Evaluations for dogs to go into therapy work.
Each program is tailored to the unique needs, abilities and personality of your animal companion.

As a credentialed partner through Karen Pryor Academy, Certification Council For Professional Dog Trainers, and a Pat Miller Peaceable Paws Affiliate, I adhere to their standards of excellence, and avidly pursue continuing education and professional development through courses such as my current undertaking through Victoria Stilwell Academy Online Dog Trainer Course, and the Fear Free Animal Trainer Course, and keeping current on all industry literature for cat and dog behaviour.
