Shell came out to help with our 9 month old American Pit Bull Terrier Cocoa. Cocoa needed basic obedience training, as well as to be taught not to jump on guests, not to pull on leash, and to be less dog reactive on walks. She helped us with all of that as well as gave us tips on how to get Cocoa to stop jumping on and scratching up the sliding glass door, and how to better direct her energy while left in the yard to help her be less destructive. She really helped us to teach our dog to be a model citizen. We would definitely recommend her services.Oct 27, 2016

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I often have an informal phone interview prior to accepting new training clients or setting evaluation appointments. This gives me an idea of the issues to expect as well as the potential trigger for the issues. After the informal interview comes the evaluation in which I observe the dog in his natural habitat, his behaviors, and his responses to correction of unwanted behaviors. This allows me to come up with a customized training plan that fits the needs of the client and the personality of the dog.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have almost a decade of hands-on experience working with rescue dogs. I have rehabilitated abuse cases, aggression cases, and anxiety issues.
