Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: My work stands out in particular because I'm trained in Canine Massage as well as Canine Behavior. I have found the combination of the two to be an extremely unique and effective approach to obtaining quicker, more positive, lasting results. I absolutely cannot express enough how much I love my work & how passionate I am about it! It fills my heart with joy each time another dog learns something new; no matter how seemingly small it may be. It's all part of a larger process & every single step makes each pup feel better about themselves. That translates to happier, healthier, more balanced dogs, which makes me, AND U, so happy 🐾❗

Dog Training

We adore Christy. She is the absolute best! She’s extremely knowledgeable, personable, kind, and giving. Christy treats our puppy as her own and is an expert in this field. Every minute we spend together we gain so much insight to be the best dog parents that we can be. Christy also watches our animals when we are out of town. We trust that they are being taken care of with tons of love and attention. We are so grateful we found Christy. We’ve only been working together for about a month and the changes we have seen in our dog are amazing! We can’t wait to keep working with her. Thanks, Christy!

Dog Training

It is working out very well. She does a great job and provides very practical training. It does not feel rushed, is thorough, takes into account dog's personality, and charges reasonable fees.

Dog Training

We have a 5 year old lab that we adopted last year. She came pretty well trained, but would PULL HARD on her leash and also would get feisty around other dogs. Christy did a great job of training us how to train our dog. She is great at what she does and it’s obvious that she loves dogs. She’s very communicative and also was really flexible around our schedule. Would DEFINITELY recommend.

FAQs

  • 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 grown up working with dogs & horses on my Aunt's farm my whole 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 and I just knew it was my LIFE'S calling to share it. I immediately began training & massaging him, then took several classes. Shortly thereafter, I decided to go to Canine Massage School to become a Canine Massage Therapist as well as a Trainer & Behavioral Specialist. We studied Canine Behavior & body language in school, & the rest I learned by taking class after class, studying under other trainers, and working very many intern hours just to learn as much as I could. I even lived at a training/boarding/daycare facility for 4 months, 24 hours/day; just to study as much & as many canines as I could. I am continually taking online courses to keep up with my education as well.
