Amy is a great trainer. She is easy to understand, is patient, and obviously very knowledgeable. She leaves videos that are very helpful. Luna loves working with her and our other dog gets in the training as well. We are truly learning how to handle the dog’s issues together.Feb 4, 2019Verified
I’ve only had one session with Amy, but so far I love her and my dog is already doing better!Oct 10, 2018Verified
We learned a lot from Amy about dogs behavior. And started applying it it right away. Works like a charm. :) will continue working together. Thanks Amy.Apr 6, 2018Verified
Amy is amazing! In just three sessions we have seen improvement with our crazy fur baby! She knows so much about dogs, people, + how we should be interacting so that we create an environment of respect and understanding. Amy’s style of instruction is such that she assessed and corrected both myself and the dog while not being patronizing towards us. Maui (the dog) responded to Amy positively and was not frightened in the process which is something I looked for while hiring a dog trainer. We didn’t want someone who bullied us or our animal. Amy and I talked a lot about her experience with other animals and she can do some pretty amazing stuff with even the most stubborn, aggressive, and/or problematic animals. Because I was so hesitant to hire a trainer in the beginning I needed to write a wonderful review for Amy because I’m so grateful for our experience with her. If you’re having any doubts at all, go with Amy. She’s also willing to drive a seriously impressive distance to work with her clients. She also offers dog sitting and boarding. All-in-one dog care with someone you can most definitely trust. Thank you so much Amy for everything you have done for our family. We’re still over hear practicing and watching Maui improve every day!Aug 15, 2018Verified
We love Amy. She is our trainer of choice for two dogs! She taught us how to get the best out of our pups.Mar 16, 2018
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I offer a number of different pricing packages based on what type of training we are doing. (Puppy, service dogs, rescue rehab, basic training, aggression correction)
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Initial contact via phone, text message, or email will determine which training set works best for you and your situation. Our first meeting is a consult to discuss training goals and all you’d like to accomplish with your dog, so that I can come up with the appropriate plan to begin immediately working on them.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Lifelong love of research on dogs & wolf behavior. Spent years running several group classes each week out of several locations. ABA Certified Behavioral Psychology major
