A+ experience for my family and our new pup. Terri's method is exactly what we were looking for.May 20, 2018
I have a rescue tripod from Hurricane Harvey who is quite anxious around strangers and dogs. Terri was so helpful with explaining the signs of anxiety along with providing useful tips and strategies. By the end of the series, my dog was more calm and is able to selectively interact with people. Very much improved!May 16, 2018
Terri worked with my 16 year old daughter to train her dog and had the utmost patience with the whole process!May 19, 2018
Terri is passionate about helping you and your dog have a wonderful relationship. She will help educate you and your dog.May 18, 2018
Terri's love of dogs and understanding of dog/human relationships informs all her trainings whether one-on-one or in groups. She helps you understand why your dog needs you to be the leader and then shows you step by step how to accomplish this in gentle, respectful ways so that your dog can stay calm and connect with you and the community you all inhabit. My teen age daughter learned so much from Teri as we did puppy training. We really enjoy Brie who is learning to navigate Decatur living with polite manners and confidence.May 17, 2018

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I offer a free 20 minute consultation by phone to better understand the needs of the owner/dog/home environment & to come up with a training plan. The first training session is usually 90 minutes & follow-up sessions are 60 minutes. My pricing includes a follow-up email after each session detailing the issues and training responses covered as well as written instructions on training cues covered. I offer a discounted fee for two or more sessions with a usual maximum of four sessions.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?My typical process is to listen deeply to a new customer's concerns and challenges in working with their dog(s) - if possible, respond in the first conversation with practical, over-the phone advise on critical issues - finally follow-up with a short plan and quote.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a certified dog trainer by Animal Behavior College which is a program that focuses on developmental learning theory, history of canines, dog health, first aid & nutrition, obedience training and problem solving. The certification includes an in-depth internship with a reputable, local trainer. I am a retired consultant with over 30 years of experience in change management as well as having raised a child and trained four family dogs to be well-mannered urban dogs and comfortable in the woods.
