    Elaine is truly a dog whisperer! She came into my multidog (5) household and managed to establish positive rapport and trust w all my dogs nearly instantly. Her biggest challenge was probably having to repeat the commands I (is humans) needed to follow.

    Elaine was excellent, on time patient and very knowledgeable. My dog instantly became better behaved with her teaching. She spent a lot of time suggesting products and teaching techniques and asked for my input repeatedly. I enjoyed my time with her and I will continue using her until I feel confident.
