    Ida has been walking our two newly adopted dogs for a few months now and she's been awesome. They are both about 1 1/2 years old, a German Shepherd and a Pomeranian/Tibetan Spaniel mix, needing major training and full of energy. Ida has already trained them to wait for their food and getting in and out of cars and doorways - a major accomplishment! Also, she's teaching them "Gentle".

    Ida is very thorough with learning about your dogs' background and she is very caring, however firm in her training. She simply loves and knows dogs. We will also let our dogs stay with her when we take vacations.

    Ida's rates are quite reasonable and she offers various discounts which we always take.

    Thank you Ida!

    Ida watched our puppy for several weeks. I know Cody
    got lots of love and lots of walks and off leash time. Ida is very knowledgeable about dogs and behavior. I got updates and pictures of Cody throughout.
    When we returned from vacation, not only was Cody healthy and happy but also better trained than when we left him. I have used Ida again for a day here, a day there since that few week stay. I'm looking forward to our next vacation and I know Cody will be in expert and caring hands with Ida.
