Sarah and Patrick were miracle workers with Duke. We had taken them a very naughty rescue and they returned to us a very manageable dog. Sarah even kept Duke longer, free of charge to fine tune some of his behavior.
I'd like to preface this review with an apology to the reader. It’s a bit long. I strongly believe that if you are going to trust someone with a member of your family, you have to arm yourself with as much information as possible in order to choose the RIGHT trainer :-) Carrie is an amazing dog behaviorist! My bratty 3 yr old pitbull (Anabel) spent 14 days in her home as a board & train. I was fairly nervous about sending my beloved dog to a stranger for 2 weeks, but from the moment that I met Carrie I was completely at ease and trusted that she would take good care of Anabel. Needless to say, she did not disappoint. I was so impressed with her results that I purchased a package of 4 in-home sessions to help with my old Spaniel. Both purchases were worth every penny & I'd use her again in a hearbeat. Her prices are way beyond reasonable, especially considering how experty she is ;-) During the board & train I was getting daily communication on Anabel's progress as well as her general mood. This was a godsend, because if you're anything like me, 14 days away from your baby is torture! Carrie sent me daily texts, pics & even videos. The before & after video she made was crazy amazing! Anabel came home with her same goofy personality, but now she was OBEDIENT! Super cool :-) For our in-my-home sessions, not only did she work with my dogs, but she trained me as well. Carrie gave me the information & tools I needed to be an effective pack leader. She is an absolute wealth of knowledge on dog behaviors, their thought processes & how the human pack leader can use this information to have happy & healthy dogs. Her schedule is extremely flexible & she always figured out a way to work with my fairly rigid work hours. Also, these sessions never felt rushed. She took her time to explain things to me (often more than once) and never gave me the sense that she was "on the clock", like, "ok, your hour is up." If we were working on a new challenge, she made sure we finished the lesson & that my endless questions were answered, even if time ran over. She's very chill like that. One of the best things about Carrie is that she is straight forward with you, but in a compassionate manner. You get no BS from her. As in, if you're doing something that is causing negative reactions in your dogs (which I was, unknowingly), she will give you constructive criticism & then teach you how to fix it without making you feel like a dummy! I can't say enough good things about this lady. It’s quite obvious that Carrie loves what she does as she is without a doubt BRILLIANT at it!!
I've seen huge improvement with my dog Zara since Linda has been working with her. I feel more confident and have better control over her in public. She listens better and has more self confidence and I'm no longer worried she's going to start fights with other dogs. From day one, you can tell that Linda is very knowledgeable about dog behavior, passionate about training and affordable! Thanks, Linda!
Betty is awesome!!! She totally “gets” puppies! It was a fun session!!!
Fantastic results. Wonderful to work with. Could not recommend more!!
