My dog Dorothy has extreme anxiety and Cassidy was instrumental in helping me work with her. We have a long way to go because she was rescued from an extreme situation, but she is a much happier dog now.Nov 27, 2018Verified
I have her to train my dog. I got the dogs because of my son who really wanted the dogs. But I have never had a dog in my life. I was scared to handle the dogs. My dogs are not allowed in the home but my back yard. After training, I was able to understand better of my dogs and I can reach the dog to pat or touch. It is possible because my dogs are sitting quietly. Even my kid are able to touch my dogs. I thinks she is a dog lover, understand dogs well. She came to my house 3 times but I still plan to have her couple of more time and we planned to go a dog park as graduation for training.Oct 25, 2018Verified
Cassidy was amazing from the start, with our phone call giving me tips and ideas and then came by the same day for our training. I say "our" training as she helped me understand what I should be doing differently and understand how my actions effect my dog. Cassidy is extremely knowledgeable, patient, understanding, reasonable, quickly available, really cares, follows up and so much more! I highly recommend Cassidy (and already have to several of my neighbors)! As you can tell, my Hurley loves Cassidy too and didn't want her to leave. Thank you so much Cassidy :)Sep 26, 2017Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I prefer to start with a phone conversation, to clarify their request(s), then have a 1st 2.5-3hr Assessment & Correction Session. Afterward, depending upon expectations & level of ability for their follow through of behavioral modification techniques, I offer them options relative to those goals that include: Verbal/Text/Email Follow-up, Group or Private Follow-up, Board & Training (Camp Cassidy), or some combination with their input.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Master of Science & 30 years of Behavioral Modification studies (main focus on Fear & Reward/Love)
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I was Aware as a child. I Realized I had an ability to connect & communicate with many animals around me. I began developing this with my own pack members & then the circle opened around me to friends, neighbors, then here I Am. My goal is to help all of my clients develop this within their own pack (at least).
