Thumbtack Spotlight

THE MEMPHIS DOG TRAINER

(4 reviews)

Ami Moore of The Chicago Dog Coach was floundering in a male-dominated profession. She found her knights in shining armor in the mentors who helped her learn the nuances of the business.

Most of my clients are people who have large hearts and really love their dogs but find themselves overwhelmed by the behavior of their dog. The majority of my clients are women with children who desire the dog to be a part of their family but are having difficulty integrating the dogs and the children into a harmonious whole.

She decided to share her dog psychology expertise with others through her book, The Alphatude Attitude. She believes that listening to clients with an open mind and heart have brought her this far.

I can help take the bite out of bad dog relationships. It is my goal to make your bad dog good and your good dog GREAT!
