Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I've worked with all sorts of dogs and people--from police dogs to therapy dogs, police officers, kids, families, stroke victims, special needs kids and adults, hospital patients, and victims of trauma. At one point early on, I became an only parent, with two young children, and FOUR big dogs. I know how difficult--and rewarding--it all can be. While it is a thrill to see an officer-K-9 team in action, and amazing to see what a handler and therapy K-9 team can do for a patient, or a trauma victim, or someone with terminal illness, it is also enormously rewarding to help individuals and families develop better understanding and better relationships with their dogs. When it is all working well, the fun is unlimited! I love seeing the potential in dogs that people have become frustrated with, then working with both the people and the dogs to make life more harmonious.

Dog Training - Board and Train

We learned so much about walking our stubbornly smart puppy and went from short stressful walks to long calm very enjoyable walks using the techniques that Lindsey taught us. Our dog now has much more focus and attention on what we are doing around her and acts accordingly instead of being wild all the time. We can't thank Lindsey enough for her training of us and our puppy and would recommend her to anyone especially with a high energy dog.

Amazing! Lindsey was wonderful with my puppies! She had so much information to share and went above and beyond the call of duty. She has a way of making you feel comfortable and calm when you feel you are not mastering a certain task with your animals such as what to do when you puppy barks at random times. I would recommend her to anyone. She is great with dogs of all ages. Lindsey is fabulous!

Dog Training - Group Lessons

Lindsey is such a professional. Her energy and presence with both people and dogs is warm and nurturing. The guidance in helping me work with my puppy is exactly what I was looking for. She takes the time to understand what help is needed and directly offers suggestive training techniques as well as lifestyle habits to help create the awesome relationship we all strive to have our pets. Highly recommended if you are looking for a more personal approach to working with your pup!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I do an initial visit to new clients' homes, to assess the situation, and figure out what is going on. Usually we get a lot of work accomplished in that single session. I see most clients only once. I provide a follow-up document reviewing everything we did, and experienced, and exercises for the clients to practice on their own.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    Dogs have individual personalities, temperaments, and varied experiences. They need different things, depending on the situation. Ultimately, however, all approaches should be positive and rewarding, so that the dog wants to learn!
