I was impressed with Sonia. Will be trying her for dog training.Jan 16, 2019Verified
My dog Gonzo was a rescue challenge. 9 months old, with little to no real socialization. I think the biggest thing that Sonia gave me was confidence -- having a dog that you love want the best for and seeing him anxious and struggling is heartbreaking. Just getting on a path, seeing the improvement, and knowing he's going to be okay -- I couldn't ask for more. Sonia not only instilled that confidence, she treated (and still does treat) Gonzo with patience and love, as she does with all dogs. He's still got a ways to go, but there's a path to get there.Jul 7, 2018VerifiedThe Heart of Caregiving's reply
Thank you! Gonzo is learning to be a sweet relaxed boy.
