About this pro

Christy educated our family on Monty's basic behaviors and what to expects. We learned a lot from our time spent with Christy. Many Thanks!Dec 12, 2016Verified
First off, Christy is amazing! She is very professional and cares about dogs deeply. I contacted Christy because I have a 46 pound Pitbull named Layla who is very reactive/aggressive towards other dogs and was seeking training/behavior classes. What Christy found was and reassured me of, was that Layla was not aggressive at all and that as a dog, she did not want to be. Rather, Christy said that she was very insecure of herself and I found that to be very true!! During session 2, Christy brought along her dog Mazzei and after only 3 sessions, Layla was able to co-exist with her PEACEFULLY!! It is truly amazing and I would have never been able to imagine that Layla would be able to be around another dog. Added bonus: Christy massages Layla when she is in distress which teaches her to calm down and it has been a huge help! Christy gives my boyfriend and I expert direction on how to properly train Layla as well as weekly "homework" assignments. Although we are still continuing training with Christy and onto our fourth week, we have found her to be a huge help and couldn't imagine the way Layla is now without her. I HIGHLY recommend Christy for training, behavior modification, and canine massage for your furbabies. You will not regret it!! If I could, I would rate her 10 stars! Do yourself a favor and hire Christy...like NOW! :)Feb 1, 2017Verified
Christy was amazing!! I really value her attentiveness and expertise as a behaviorist in caring for my Husky during my 4 days in the Lake Forest area. I was staying at a dog-friendly hotel but had to be gone most of the day to work with a client. I loved Christy's interaction with my Husky -- which was far more than simply taking him for walks. She kept him engaged & mentally stimulated with behavior training, massage, meeting other dogs, car rides -- and especially with her 4-legged companion named Mazzei -- with whom my Husky bonded as his friend. :) I highly recommend Christy -- and will certainly request her expertise and loving companionship again for my next work trip to Lake Forest!Dec 2, 2016Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My prices vary a bit from client to client. This is simply because I make up such a specialized, targeted program, set of goals & ways of achieving them for each individual case. It would be impossible to have a flat rate.....however, when you consider that your dog is not simply learning to obey a command, but learning to do SOOOO VERY MUCH MORE, like get THRU anything that may be blocking them from being the truly free spirited dog that dogs are meant to be~you, too will find yourself a much happier person & pet parent.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I always like to set up a face to face evaluation at no charge to the potential client for several reasons. 1.) It gives them the chance to meet me & see first if they are comfortable with me. 2.) It gives both myself & the pet parents an opportunity to see how their dog [s] respond to me & my energy; with the ultimate goal of making them ALL more comfortable & relaxed! 3.) It also allows the pet parents to come up with any more in depth questions they may have. I feel this is an excruciatingly important first step to take!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have worked with dogs & horses my whoie life, however, after rescuing, Jordan, [ whom I refer to as my first born as i don't have children! ], HE GAVE ME THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIFT that i just knew it was my life's calling to share it. So I naturally started training & massaging him, then took several classes, which I just absorbed like a sponge! Soon after, I decided to go to Canine Massage School to become a Canine Massage Therapist as well as a Trainer & Behavioral Specialist. We studied some Canine Behavior in school, & the rest I learned by taking class after class, over & over, studying under other trainers, and working very many intern hours just to learn as much as I could. I even lived at a boarding/daycare facility for 3 months, 24 hours/day just to study as much & as many canines as I could.
