Sue has been working with me and my two min pins, Coco and Tootsie on behavior modification issues. I was at the point of contacting the breeder to give one of them back - basically at the end of my rope. I'd worked with other dog. trainers, but Sue explained and showed how to manage and modify behavior that was easy to comprehend and made sense. I am not exaggerating when I say she has literally changed my life and helped me rethink how to interact with my girls. I am very grateful.Mar 11, 2015

- How did you get started doing this type of work?In 1991, I acquired a dog who became aggressive towards everything. I loved him dearly, and wanted to help him. I found CW Meisterfeld (now deceased), a man who had been using positive reinforcement techniques to help dogs with behavior problems since the 1940's. He helped me to turn my dog around. Then, I wanted to help others with their dogs. I love working through behavior issues with dogs, esp aggression. After I started doing training and behavior consulting professionally, I decided to add pet sitting services, as well. The two services go together really well.
- What types of customers have you worked with?We offer day training services where we train your dog at your home while you go about your business, and meet with you weekly to help you maintain the training. If you prefer to train your dog yourself, our behaviorist will coach you at your home to teach your dog to be the obedient dog that you want. We provide all kinds of pet sitting services in your home. A professional will visit your home once or more times a day; or spend the night at your house, if you prefer. Not only will we care for your pets while there, but we will also care for your plants, collect your mail and newspapers, put out the garbage, etc.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Look for someone who is interested in serving your needs; not someone who provides the exact same services to every customer. You want someone who will listen to your concerns, and address them.
