Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I work with the problems of the dog world - the anxious, shut down, aggressive, fearful, or just plain naughty. I am passionate about bringing happiness and freedom to the mindsets of the people and animals I work with. It gives me energy and joy to see a previously shut down dog decide to take a step in the direction of being the fun loving pup they were designed to be, or seeing an aggressive dog surrender their need to control and play with other dogs as nature designed them to. Often this means their people have to take steps for themselves and learn in the process, and i certainly learn from every client and every dog myself, so the entire system of Terra Paws is built on joy, nature, and self-actualization.

Dog Walking

Mandy has been working with our family and three dogs for over a year and is our top find on Thumbtack to-date. There aren't enough words to describe how happy we are with the progress our dogs continually make with her training. Our initial inquiry was for help on leash training and since our third dog was a Labrador puppy, we quickly found ourselves in over our heads. She is quick to offer helpful advice and our dogs love every time she comes over - even when she makes them do things that "suck" (like behave around the feisty kitty). She includes the family in any training session we like and is flexible with requests for new behaviors or trick training.

Dog Training

Mandy was a lifesaver! We were so frustrated with our furry family member, because we didn't know how to effectively communicate what we wanted from him in a way that he would understand. In just one session we learned enough to take charge, and with her helpful translations, we noticed positive results by literally the next day. Knowing what we know now, I feel very confident that by the time summer rolls around, our dog Hawkeye will be well behaved enough that people might ask if he's a service animal or not. That's how quickly we're getting results. I wouldn't hesitate to hire her again in a heartbeat if we wanted to work on a certain skill or trick but didn't know how to start the process or if we got frustrated with the lack of progress. It was less about dog training and more about training us how to "talk" to him. Do not hesitate to hire her! She will do everything in her power to help you achieve what you want and find a way to make it fun in the process!

Dog Training

Amanda did a great job with our training session for our 1 year old Cockapoo Leon. In the past, we had spent our money on group training classes, which were informative, but lack the the type of hands on one on one training that we really needed. However, with Amanda, we were given the tools tailored to us to succeed with training our dog. We felt like Amanda brought a breath of fresh air to dog training, because implored us to be a little more instinctual with our approach in training Leon. Most importantly, we felt she trained us on HOW to train our dog. We worked on recall, loose leash walking, seizing jumping on guests that come over and also becoming more flexible with Leon diet(Our dog eats whenever he wants). We have made strides in all of the above in 1 week.

Dog Training

Mandy did an AMAZING job at assisting us with our border collie puppy. There were many things we had to learn about handling a border collie as well as what methods to use when things are not going in our favor. Mandy was very patient and understanding with us and did a fantastic job at getting our puppy to follow commands. We had so much to learn that she ended up staying at our house almost three hours to ensure we had things under control before she left. She had a variety of methods to use if we felt one way might not work for us (such as scaring our puppy into a better behavior versus hanging out around the kennel until our little one would calm down). You can tell she enjoys her job and is very knowledgeable. Honestly, I would recommend her to anyone with puppy training needs!

Dog Training

Mandy was awesome in helping us deal with the dynamics of our female pack. She definitely has a sense about dogs and their persona and can also identify weaknesses and blind spots in owners. Mandy helped us identify ways in which we were unknowingly enabling a bullying dog while simultaneously encouraging submissive behavior in another pack member. We were creating the perfect storm by not understanding the messages we were giving to pack members through our reactions, responses and words. Most every dog has some point in their life where they are a unique challenge. Mandy can help the human see their behavior from the perspective of the dog. She was able to easily identify many of the things we do as owners (with good intention) to confuse our dogs. Mandy's consultation will provide us much guidance with any future dogs as well. She is well worth her fee and we would speak highly of her capabilities to anyone wanting to speak to us as a referral. While Mandy has had a dramatic effect on our pack and household since her visit, the hardest work came after her visit. Without follow through and consistency, behavioral changes may not stay changed forever so it is important to take your job as pack leader seriously. As time goes by, each day's challenges becomes easier as we all learn to fulfill our roles within the pack. We can now look forward to the future with hope.
