Introduction: I offer positive reinforcement dog training for everything from basic obedience to behavioral problems. Dog training is my passion - I've been training dogs since I was 13! My goal is to work with dogs (and their owners) so that we can create a happy and well balanced dog. I also have been pet sitting for all types of animals for over 10 years. I offer in-home services so your pet can stay safe and comfy in their own home.

Shelby is personable and is obviously knowledgeable about dog training. She had my six-year-old terrier obeying her commands in a matter of minutes. She is patient and does a great job of explaining how to continue the training after she leaves. I definitely recommend her!

I really couldn't have asked for a better trainer than Shelby. She made an immediate change in my two, very active and distracted, dogs. We had 8 sessions total, spread out over the summer. She was always flexible in working with my schedule and adjustable if I needed to make an unexpected change to the schedule. It's obvious she is very knowledgeable about dogs and their needs. She is very professional and knew how to communicate well with me. After our sessions, my dogs have grown to be much more patient and compliant to commands. They are much better at walking on their leashes and being around other dogs and people. They don't bark nearly as much and are way easier to get under control if/when they get excited. This has been one of the best investments I've made in a long time. Shelby was also SUPER affordable. Way more affordable than any other trainers I researched. All in all, great experience. She helped enhance the quality of life of the dogs, me--and the whole neighborhood that used to be tortured by their barking!

We have been working with Shelby now for a few months. She has done a great job helping us work with our Australian Shepherd (a two-year old male recent rescue). We have taught him basic commands, how to walk on leash, how to greet people when they come to the house and many other things. As dog owners, Shelby has taught us how to be in charge of our dog and as a result he is much calmer and better behaved. We would describe her style of training as positive reenforcement with mild verbal corrections when appropriate. Shelby has been great to work with and our dog has responded really well to her. Shelby has a lot of great skills and knowledge that she has shared with us. She is also creative and willing to think outside the box when something we try with our dog does not work. The cost is very reasonable and we have seen immediate and continued improvement in our dog's behavior. We highly recommend her.
