Amy & John are awesome people! Within a few minutes they were able to evaluate my dog's leash pulling problem. They are very intuitive and kind. I look forward to using them in the future for pet sitting and walks. Prices are excellent!Jan 30, 2018Verified
Amy and John always go above and beyond to take care of my fur babies. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for someone to pet sit, walk, etc. I trust them with my babies' lives, and Duke and Izzy love them dearly!May 30, 2017Verified
Amy and her partner John are wonderful. They are very knowledgeable about animals and come prepared to make a plan that works for your specific needs. We have had two training sessions and we already see a difference with our dog's obedience. We are grateful that we found them!Apr 21, 2017Verified
My dog (a schipperke) was wild, crazy, and got into everything. After Amy and John worked with her she has gotten a lot better. I thought she would be an impossible case but they did a miracle, she is not getting into things like she did and she is actually obeying. I still have to work with her for some issues like coming to me and not playing so rough with her sister a bichon runt, but she has come a long ways from where she was. I would definitely recommend hiring them.Feb 4, 2019Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?For Board and Train we start with a meet and greet/evaluation , typically done in the dogs home. This is with the family members and pets. We discuss any concerns, issues, or questions the family might have. We will go over the pets daily routines, the desired outcome of training, and any special requests. At the end of there training we go back to your home and work with you for at lead an hour to go over training and how to maintain what your dog has learned. With private lessons we start on the first visit working with both the dog and there family to set them up for success . Then options and training are tailored to there specific needs , either in home, in public, at our facility. On private lessons they are geared toward teaching the owners how to train there dog , they do require participation of owners and there is homework between visits. But the ability to understand your dogs specific personality and how to work with them is priceless
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have worked with animals my entire life. A vet in Nacogdoches realized my potential and I started working with him consistently from the time I was 10 years old. My specialty was hard to deal with animals domestic , and exotic. From there I went on to become a certified dog/Animal trainer, certified animal behaviorist [certified human behaviorist], and began training dogs for service animals, therapy, bomb, and drug. I am also canine CPR certified . Emergency Management certified. Maintain high level security clearance. I have worked many years in, and with law enforcement K-9. Wrote , trained the Diamond dog program that went nationwide in multiple shelters that has reduced the kill rates, and increased the number of animals staying in there homes through matchmaking, training, human trainer , and is used to train and certify other trainers. Diamond dogs won grants through Purina, Government, and personal investors. I still to this day train animals for children and adults with disabilities. Work with shelters, train law,enforcement. I love what I do and tailor to what is needed for both our pets and families.
