I recently adopted a rescue puppy about one year old. She is a sweet dog, but had no training and had been on her own without a family for some time. She was very jumpy and nippy and was extremely difficult to live with. I contacted Suzanne in desperation. And Suzanne (aka Dog Whisper) came the next day, got me to calm down and then help me get the new puppy calmed down as well. We have more training in the future, but for now, Suzanne has us off to a good start for a happy relationship! Thank you!!!

Details: 6 - 12 months old • Medium (26 - 40 lbs) • Private lessons • Puppy training • My home, venue, etc.

Suzanne was very professional and responsive when it came to training my puppy. Her commands worked for my dog. She answered all my questions regarding training my puppy and showed me some skills that actually worked. At first I was hesitant to hire a dog trainer. It was something about her that made me hire her. We still have one session left in March. As soon as my puppy Mango saw her, he knew it was business. I recommend Suzanne. Thank you for everything

Suzanne was amazing! She was extremely accommodating when rescheduling was needed and we noticed a difference after one session with her! Suzanne was always easy to reach and helped with every aspect of training our dogs. I would absolutely use her again and recommend her to others!

I used Suzanne’s services to train this little rascal! Don’t let the cuteness fool you, he is one stubborn Yorkie-Poodle! Suzanne helped me with cage training and potty training (at just 8 weeks), but also with leash pulling, sit, sit and stay, etc! She was wonderful!!! I remember how stressed I was in the beginning of all of this as a new pet-owner, but Suzanne’s Pet Services helped easy my nerves!! She is wonderful!! He is now 14 weeks and sleeps through the night (up to 12 hours if I need him too), which I completely love!! Is completely puppy trained as well! She is well respected by dogs, it is truly amazing!! She has a gift! My favorite part about Suzanne’s Pet Services is that I know I will have her there for any questions or concerns for the rest of my dog’s life!

Suzanne really helped my dog Kiwi with biting and leash pulling. She suggested me collars and help me train kiwi with them. He is a very big dog and it helped very much. She also gave me a lot of tips to help kiwi with minor problems. Another thing I liked was how she help find time in her schedule because I am very busy with other things. She was also very friendly. I would definitely recommend her to a friend/family or someone else.
