That is where the behavior starts, that is where we fix it. I have been training dogs all my life, Literally. I am a Dog Trainer, an Animal Behaviorist and a Life Coach. These things work very well together because I am training the whole pack! My Mom trained dogs and that is what started me on this track. As an adult I opened a dog training facility and a wildlife refuge. I am also a Life Coach, helping people in a kinds of situations, succeed. Dog training and life coaching go together very well as I am training you as well as the dog. This is also very useful when training therapy and service dogs and can often help relieve some issues of the human as the training is therapeutic for you too. In my refuge I would get dogs that nobody wanted, hard to train or aggressive dogs and from the pound. I would rehabilitate them at my own cost. I was able to adopt every one of those dogs out to a loving home. I love a challenge. Because of this, I have worked with many different dogs in just about every situation you can imagine.

I have extensive back ground with hard to train dogs that have Behavioral issues. My techniques are somewhat similar to Cesar Milan. That way we can fast track you and your dog to becoming a team. I have studied many different styles in my life so I'm able to come up with a training technique and/or plan that will fit you and your dog to get the outcome we want. Every dog and situation are different, So I will customize your plan to fit your specific needs and goals. I travel to you. You're home is where the behavior is happening.

The number of seesion can vary depending on the problems we are addressing so prices and number of session can differ widely. one last thing, Please click on dog training Not board and train or I won't be able to connect with you.

Stacey is wonderful trainer! She told me how to be a leader of my dogs. I have Beagle and Chihuahua. The issue is barking. I have another appointment next month to fix pulling leash! It’s been only one day but I already see great results. I am so glad to ask her for help!

Bottom line up front, Stacey is worth every penny. We recently took over care of my son’s 3 year old German Shepard who came to us with aggression and dominance issues. Stacey and her assistant were clear about what to expect and Stacey delivered on that from the moment she came through the door. She has taught my entire family how to take control of the situation, the correct way to respond to behavioral issues and the importance of winning all the “dog fights”. I was ready to ship that dog off to a rescue or shelter, but with a few training sessions and keeping up with the things we were taught from Stacey, I’m actually learning to like him. I realize it’s not cheap, but wholeheartedly believe Stacey is the reason why the dog is still here with us today.

I can’t recommend Heavenly Hounds enough! My dogs behavior has improved significantly after just 1 session. I'm looking forward to seeing how he does after I put more of this training into practice.

Wow. I cannot say enough good things. My parents and I are first time puppy owners, and let me just saw we were totally in over our heads. She came in and within minutes our puppy was well behaved. She thought us so many valuable lessons to train the puppy. Our puppy is so much better because WE learned. Thank you SO MUCH.

I was super impressed with her knowledge and how she took control of my stubborn 5 mos Golden Retriever. Very informative and great advice on potty training, counter skimming and taking control of your home. Can’t wait to have her back!
