I would highly recommend Suzanne's Pet service. Suzanne is very professional and responsive. She helped us train our 8 month old Labrador retriever who was pulling while walking on a leash. She is now able to heel and walk together with my 6 year old Lab. We also focused on staying calm while meeting new friends and not jump all over them when they come to visit. We see a huge improvement in our dog's manners and we couldn't have done it without her help!! Thank you Suzanne.

Details: 0 - 6 months old • Large (41 - 70 lbs) • Private lessons • Puppy training • Leash pulling • Biting • My home, venue, etc.

Suzanne is incredible. Have worked with other dog trainers in the past and have never seen so much progress before! She came to help with my Shiba Inu puppy and the results are like night and day. Roxy is such a well behaved pup after working with Suzanne for the past few weeks, it is almost like she is a new dog! Suzanne is extremely effective at what she does and does it all with so much love for the dogs! Would recommend to anyone looking for a dogtrainer.

Suzanne is an excellent trainer! Specifically, she is knowledgeable, punctual, and personable. We’ve seen significant improvement in our puppy’s behavior after each session. We tackled issues such as separation anxiety, biting, barking, and basic commands (e.g., sit, stay, etc.). In addition to training our three month old puppy, she’s helped with our 10 year old dog and with training us to be pack leaders 😊. We highly recommend her services. Book her now!

Im so happy we chose Suzanne as our dog trainer. Stella had anxiety, didnt want to leave our yard. Today shes finally going on a walks and doesnt pull a leash!!! Her behavior changed. She is not an insecure dog anymore. Stella is one happy puppy as she should be. Definitely recommending Suzannes Pet Services!!

Hope my friend Stella is keeping up the good work. All she needed was a little encouragement with training.

My wife and I refer to Suzanne as "The Dog Whisperer," because of how our two pooches hear and watch her every move and instruction, as well as wait patiently for long periods of time for Suzanne to say something (when she is teaching them patience.) They "get" her, and vice-versa. I was terrified that we'd made a wrong decision by adding a puppy (Chester) to our home with our 12-year-old very-jealous dog. I feared I'd never get any work done (or sleep). That first night was hell for us. But Suzanne performed magic for us from her first visit, putting us at ease, and in a matter of days I was overjoyed that we'd expanded the home with Chester. After just a handful of training sessions, the two dogs got along wonderfully about 95% of the time. We also love Suzanne's great personality, sense of humor, and stories about trainings she did over the decades. Thank you, Suzanne. We're forever grateful, and we look forward to future trainings as we get to the next levels.
