Dog Training

Joan is a wonderful trainer, not only for my sweet dog Hannah but also for me as a first-time dog owner. She provides easy-to-follow training materials, homework for both me and Hannah that works!

Joan is awesome, she really knows her stuff and taught us so much about our German Shepherd. She was straight to the point and very professional. An outstanding dog trainer!

Joan responded to our request immediately. She gave me a good outline of what her training offered over the phone. During the evaluation the dogs responded to her right away and she had them doing a couple different commands during that short time. She gave us homework to give consistency to the dogs and they will be ready for the next lesson. I liked that she offered a “bundle” that is affordable and has a six week plan. Very impressed.

Joan is going to be our savior with our baby Goldendoodle! Within our égalisation appointment she already had our puppy doing “look at me”, “down” and more! She was extremely patient when it took our puppy 50-70 times just to lay down! She also included this amazing packet of information for us, and laid out our schedule for puppy training. On top of that, she will allow us to use her different sizes of harnesses as our puppy grows, which is extremely kind and convenient. I cannot say enough about Joan! We’re so excited to see our puppy’s progress as she and my husband and I learn!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    There is normally an evaluation so that I can gage a training program that will work for your pup. Then we implement it on my second visit.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    20 years training dogs

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    My love of animals dates back to when I was 7 and a stray cat followed me home. Dogs are my passion, I train in a positive fun environment.
