A puppy's first few weeks in her new home is a critical learning period for both dog and owners - we wasted no time to ask for professional, tailored advice. Nu Pawspective came to our rescue on short notice with multiple options and a flexible schedule. After one consultation with Susan, we gained lifelong dog-parenting skills and a sense of confidence which have transformed the way we bond with our puppy. For us, studying how-to/success story/videos featuring other dogs was good, but not efficient. One focused, quality consultation with Susan enabled us to streamline the way we balance playtime and training, the way we reward and praise our puppy - we have gained back precious time which would have been wasted to trial and error. Susan will learn about your puppy and generously guide you on things that work. We were lucky to find her and will continue to rely on her mentorship as our puppy matures.Apr 5, 2020Verified
As a first time pet parent, it is important to find the right trainer and I’m glad that I found Susan. Susan is a fantastic trainer. I hired her for 1:1 training my puppy yorkie and during the multiple sessions we have had, she is professional, kind, patient and fantastic with my puppy. She treats dogs with care and just as you would treat your babies. Highly recommend! Thanks Susan!Dec 29, 2019Verified
Very informational and helpful. I highly recommend this trainer; I will recommend to my several friends who’ve gotten puppies a few weeks before and still looking for trainers! Once again, cannot stress this enough how knowledgeable Nu Pawsective is!!!Sep 15, 2020Verified
Susan was a life saver! We adopted our lab-pitt Guava at 10 months old from a shelter in June - once we brought him home we realized he was much nippier than we had been told and needed some more basic training. Guava was immediately responsive to Susan and she gave us excellent ways to redirect his play biting and trained us how to train him! From the 10 sessions we spent with her we saw a visible improvement in Guava's responsiveness and how quickly he picked up commands. Susan set us up with a colleague for continued muzzle training, and continues to be a resource to lean on. We highly recommend her!Aug 22, 2019Verified

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I always participate in numerous seminars hosted by reputable organizations and industry leaders through out the year. Beside seminars, I am always looking to further my training abilities by participating in rigorous continue education.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Ask as many questions as you would asking your child's teacher. Dog trainers come from various background. Not only it's important to find a competent trainer, it's also essential to find one who trains in a humane way.
