I'm so glad we sent our baby to stay with Vanessa for her 2 week training! My girl is an 8 month old 70 pound German Shepherd and before, I couldn't manage her at all! I was afraid to take her out of the house because of how strong she is and I didn't want to get hurt or have her get loose. I used to have to put her in my room if people came over so she wasn't jumping on them constantly. She came home a new dog! She does so good on her leash now, I even took her shopping at Lowe's and she did amazing! No more jumping! Thank you so much Vanessa!

On a 5-star rating I'd like to give her a hundred thousand, million billion! This is the best investment I will ever make in anything related to an animal that I have. It will bless our lives every day forward for as long as my dog lives and will bless me with the next dog I have in the next after that. In the life of my dog it will end up being a fraction of a penny a day investment. The scale quality of Vanessa's her training has forever changed my dog's life and my life. It's actually made the difference of being able to keep my beloved pet. I've worked with him daily since I got him at 10 weeks old, he's always been a handful and I've never been effective with my training. This summer things spiraled out of control when he got aggressive with a housemate and a neighbor. I was scared to have hum around children because he would get aggressive with them as well. I was looking into the options of finding a new home for him, which broke my heart but I was trying to do what was best for the dog for the children in the neighborhood and for myself. I thank God we found Vanessa and her family that took my dog in for 2 weeks socialized thim trained him, helped him discover he could trust people to be the alpha and he could relax into just being a dog and a puppy. He is much more happy and relaxed than I have ever seen him. He minds me almost perfectly. He's safe around children men and unexpected visitors to our house now! I did my homework and talked to multiple trainers before choosing Vanessa.. Most of them their rate was double or triple Vanessa's and I didn't always like their approach. The fact that my dog got to live in her home and be fully socialized with her family I think made an enormous difference. This is the highest review I've ever given to any kind of business at any time. I can't overstate how good she is.

Vanessa is great! She quickly figured out what was going on with our dog Roxy and in just a few minutes, she she had Roxy paying attention and listening instead of looking for squirrels! After a few of Vanessas parent training lessons, we now know how to correct and praise Roxy in a way that makes our daily walks much more enjoyable. Really glad we called Vanessa!
