Denise did a wonderful job with our dog Coco. She addressed all our issues and found the most effective way to deal with his problems. I was impressed by her vast knowledge of dog behavior. She made sure we were completely satisfied with her training. I would highly recommend her.

Denise was incredibly knowledgeable and extremely patient with our nervous wreck of a border collie! I would definitely recommend her to any dog owner seeking anything from fine tuning to total behavior modification. Denise instilled confidence in our dog as well as in us and our ability to be effective handlers. Denise was extremely flexible with scheduling and location, and truly worked her magic with our dog. Clover is now much more calm and comfortable with new situations and people - a change we began to notice after only the first session. I will definitely be looking to Denise again for any training in the future. We learned so much from her in our sessions together. I am a much more relaxed and confident handler, and will continue to use the methods Denise taught us. I can’t say enough good things about her! She truly knows what she’s doing!

Dog Training

I rescued a 1.5-2 y/o lab mix in November. He came from a sketchy past, which lead to his debilitating separation anxiety and nervous outbursts. I was very ill prepared to deal with this, and he was destroying everything when I was gone out of sheer panic. He was escaping his crate, ripping apart everything, and having bad accidents in the house while I was gone. The scariest thing for me was that he was physically hurting himself getting out of the crate - and I knew that there was nothing keeping him from REALLY seriously hurting himself, because he was so panicked and determined to get out of the wire crate at all costs. Denise came into our lives when I was fully prepared to give up. I felt very hopeless and like I had tried everything. I had bought new blinds for all my windows, new screens, new bedding, a new door, new shoes, etc. MULTIPLE times. It got to the point where I was trying to avoid leaving my house bc I just couldn't leave him. So working with Denise was my last ditch effort. Denise QUICKLY made progress with us. She advised me on a new crate, taught us how to walk on a leash, improved the separation anxiety, and made my dog more confident. She was very involved, reachable by text/phone, determined to help us in any way she could. If I was having a weak moment where I was feeling like my dog was not listening to me, I would text her and she would always send me advice or call me as soon as she could with exactly what I needed to hear to calm me down about it. She also kept it real with me when I needed to be told that I wasn't being consistent, or I was doing something wrong, or I was blaming my dog for things that I also needed to fix. My dog is scared of everyone, and he really liked Denise. It is so evident how passionate she is about what she does, and how amazing she is with animals. I would trust her with any dog I ever had. She will be the best thing for you and your dog, no matter what issue you need to address or training you would like to do. We are very grateful for her! 10/10 recommend

Denise helped us with our 70-lb 2-year-old rescue dog who has terrible anxiety and was afraid to go outside of the house. It was pretty much impossible to walk her on a leash. We can now walk her without any problems, which feels like a miracle in our house. Denise shows up on time and does what she says she is going to do. She gave my husband a lot of great tools to continue our dog's training. Highly recommend--thank you, Denise!
