Dog training type
Julie was awesome. Before her training I was considering getting rid of my dogs. With her expertise my dogs are becoming well manner joys to be around. I would highly recommend her. Her pricing is also very good. EXCELLENT JOB!!Dec 14, 2017
Julie has worked with my Pug and I for several weeks. My Pug was very aggressive towards humans and was starting to interfere with my daily routine from having people over to redirecting his aggression towards me. I contacted Julie and in this short time i have seen major improvements with my dog. She has taught me so many things that are really mistakes that i had no idea i was unconsciously making. I am very excited to keep working with her and keep seeing the results i am seeing now. Her interactions with my dog speaks about the experience and knowledge she has about dog training, i truly recommend her.Jan 1, 2017Verified
Julie was very patient and passionate about training both my dogs for a very good price. Before, one of my dogs would never stop barking when the doorbell or a guest would visit, but after 2 lessons, the habit was almost completely gone. In addition, she totally teaches me the tricks on how to approach and handle the dogs in a variety of situations that occur in daily life. I would definitely recommend her to any dog owners and lovers out there.Mar 13, 2017Verified
Julie is AMAZING! First session is all about her getting to know you as well as you getting to know her. She thoroughly explains the tools she has and how they can help your dog with particular issues. I am a small person with a big dog who always dragged me down the street. After Julie's first session with him, I have not been dragged by him once. We are now working on his aggression issues and he is already showing great improvement! I am so happy that I chose Julie because she genuinely cares about you and your dog(s). It also helps that she is so fun to be around! Great dog trainer and great person!Oct 8, 2015Verified
We rescued our cocker mix June 2015.By mid-August, he had bitten 4 people inside our home. He also barked incessantly at the mailman, the gardener or whoever came to our front door. We needed a trainer who could come to our home because since the dog bit those 4 people, we had not had any friends or family to our home for visits. Julie came and explained the different tools she uses for training. I always felt prong collars were cruel. Julie showed me how wrong I was. I now use the prong collar and realize that it is not a cruel way of training. Julie is patient, kind and very knowledgeable about dogs and their behaviors. She has shown me how to train and correct my dog. In 5 sessions, my dog no longer barks incessantly, he no longer wants to attack cats we encounter on our walks. He no longer lunges nor snarls at dogs we encounter on our walks. He can get close to other dogs and no longer feels threatened nor feels the need to “protect” me. He also did very well at the dogpark. He had never gone anywhere unleased. I am very happy I chose Julie as our trainer because I now feel very confident that my dog is well behaved on our walks when we meet people and dogs. I highly recommend Julie because I got fast results with her methods of training and my dog fell in love with her.Oct 8, 2016Verified
