About this pro

I've been working with and training dogs for over 25 years. My goal in training is to help you to enjoy your dog even more and to help the dogs be the best they can be.

In boarding your dog, while you're away on vacation or for business, my goal is to make sure your beloved baby has a great time, so you can rest and relax or stay focused on your business.

My goal in offering dog walking services is to help with behavior issues that often arise out of just a need for more exercise! We all live busy lives, and for some, walking their dog daily, is next to impossible to add in. I'm here to help you with that.

At Praising Paws, we want to help you praise the paws that you love!

    Dnea is awesome. She's very knowledgeable, accommodating, and patient. We saw instant results in our 4 month old Great Dane.

    I can't say enough about how great D'Nea is to work with for pup training.Her approach using POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT is fun for both dogs and owners. My Austailian Shepherd generally had the attention span of a gnat when she was a puppy. But D'Nea makes training fun and captivates the pups. I highly recommend her services!

    DNea is a super patient trainer with the dogs. You can tell she loves them and loves working with them just be her attitude. We have boarded Doug with her on several occasions and he's reluctant to come home--he loves being with her and her family. When you board your pup with DNea, the whole family pitches in and it's not just a boarding experience. They treat your pup as if it were their own.

    Dnea has worked with and thought us how best to train our giant Dane puppy for the past year. Her patience, knowledge and love for all the animals is obvious. We've boarded both our dogs with her a number of times and they are always excited when we drop them off again, and in great spirits and well taken care of when we pick them up.

    DNea did a fabulous job helping us train our dog. She's got such a positive attitude and always helped as with any questions we had. Whenever we go our of town, we bring our dog to DNea because we know our dog will be safe and loved on while we are gone. We like knowing our dog isn't stuck in the kennel all day like she would be at the vet. DNea provides excellent services and is a pleasure to work with!

    If you are looking for a caring and loving person to train or care for your baby you have found one in D'Nea. I have a shi-poo that has a heart murmur. D''Nea is the only person that I would trust to take care of her! I have known her for years! She is a great trainer, I know first hand because she trained my baby!

    I have three Old English Mastiffs and wouldn't trust their care or training to anyone other than D'Nea. I have used her services for the past six years. All of my fur-kids have been through her obedience classes with two of my girls completing all three levels. I travel quite a bit, and am grateful to have a loving, Christian family for them to stay with while I am gone. Knowing they are pampered just like I would treat them at home gives me real peace of mind. I have referred several friends to D'Nea and know they feel the same.

    DNEA a is a very trusting and wonderful person . She helped me train my two Australian Shepherds and help relieve them of some anxiety and social issues as well as following basic commands. She is the only person I let keep my dogs when I'm away.
