Amy is an outstanding!! I think she's incredibly professional yet approachable but most importantly, Logan, my 7 year old Lab/Malamute mix took to her immediately! You can tell that she really listens to your concerns and introduces methods specific to your situation, instead of just going through a generalized routine for all clients. I'm very impressed by her ability to alter negative behaviors in a large, hyperactive dog without discouraging him or altering his personality in any way. She also does an excellent job of encouraging and teaching me how to better communicate with Logan without being condescending. In addition to training she also gave me successful, easy suggestions on how to entertain and ware Logan out throughout the day. Thanks to Amy he is better behaved at home and in public but out of everything she's done to help us the absolute best result is how much happier Logan is on a daily basis!!Nov 14, 2015VerifiedTrust Your Dog Training's reply
Alex, I love working with you and Logan. He's a great dog and you are both a wonderful team to work with. I love helping people deepen their relationship with their dog.

Amy gave us small training tips that went a long way with our anxious pup!Oct 14, 2016Verified
Amy has come to work with our dog twice as of now. She's a great person with an outstanding attitude. She's very easy to talk with and she knows what she's doing. Our boxer is 1 yr and 8 months and can be very hard headed at times. Since working with Amy, we've not had any issues. He's responded extremely well to the training technique Amy offers.May 22, 2016Verified

Thank you Tracy. I really enjoyed meeting you and your family and working with your dog. I'm looking forward to hearing how things are going in the future.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Yes. I have an initial 90 minute consultation fee. In the initial consultation I review your dog's behavior and history as completely as I can and develop a treatment plan that will address your needs. At the end of the consultation I will email you a full written report with interventions and training plans to ensure your success. After that I offer 60 minute training sessions. These can be purchased as a package at a slightly discounted rate. All prices are listed on my website.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I prefer to connect first via phone, email, or social media to make sure that the services I offer will fit your needs. After arranging an appointment either in person or over my website, I make sure I have background information about my client, their dog(s), and their family. This information helps me to plan for our first 90 minute session which is used to discuss behavior goals, management strategies and a training plan.
