Dog training type
We didn’t know what to expect since we were having both our Opie and Barney trained together. Stacy made us feel at ease right away. Stacy did an amazing job with our pups and us. Although, my wife and I were her biggest challenge. We now feel more in control of our pups behavior. We highly recommend Stacy and her methods on keeping your dog focused on you. We might get another doggie, just so we can have Stacy train them.Apr 20, 2018Verified
Stacy was able to answer all our questions in an easy to understand way. She is professional, accommodating, and a great communicator. We were fortunate to have someone as professional and understanding as Stacy to train our two young dogs.Jun 7, 2014Verified
My dog and I loved working with Stacy. She showed us the correct way to meet people and be out in public places without jumping, barking or hiding from people. We met in a variety of places to practice training in different settings which was very helpful for me to understand how I should be training my dog. I definitely would recommend Stacy for your dog training!Feb 25, 2019Pawsitive Focus's reply
Thank you for being so awesome too. Training flourishes when you dive in and get excited about what you and your dog can do. Jessica, that's what you did every week! I can't wait to hear of your journeys together. Keep me updated. Jozi you rock sweet girl!
It seemed we were the ones needing the training more than our dog but the transformation after each training session was remarkable. After 5 sessions Josie is much better behaved and we are better equipped to manage her behaviors positively instead of becoming frustrated. We are enjoying her more each day.

Love it! Learning how your verbal and non-verbal communication impacted Josie, has helped her know what's expected from you. Y'all have done awesome in training her and taking the time for her to learn foundations. Fun games and going places will continue your success and grow love bonds. Thank you and keep it up! Can't wait to hear updates!
