Working with Joan was an absolute pleasure. Not only is she knowledge and patient but she connects to the animals immediately and teaches you how to do the same. She is dedicated to not only training the animals but teaching you how to work with them in a way that they learn to trust and show their love to you. She is as focused on the families success as she is the animals. Her follow up and check in style is commendable and i highly recommend her services.

She was easy to work with. My dog liked her. I felt we had the same basic ideas about dog training. We’re going to meet again.

Joan was amazing. She had my puppy doing her commands and under her control in minutes. She has a true connection with animals and showed me some great execution and strategies on training my dog. She answers questions anytime as well! Highly recommended!

Joan was super knowledgeable about dogs. She helped get our Dog Nala consistent with potty training, commands, and focusing. Will be booking her at least 1-2 times per month ! Thanks Joan!

It is not often that I post reviews, and I'll be honest, most times if I post a review it is because I am so displeased with the product or service. Joan on the other hand has blown my mind. I am lost for words. I was nervous even purchasing the services because my dog barks at everyone, but not Joan. Even before beginning, she had such an approachable demeanor that my pup simply sniffed her and carried on as if she weren't a stranger. A few moments later she had my nala sitting; a command that is her favorite to ignore. I was so blown away I got the whole family involved. Joan not only trains the dog, but she also taught us how our mannerisms affect her behavior. Even as we were walking, she would catch the attention of other dogs and people would be astonished by her approach. Multiple people asked if she works with animals before she even introduced herself. After only one session, nala is noticeably calmer and follows more commands. I intend to be a repeat customer for sure. My family is convinced she is a dog whisperer, and I am inclined to agree with them. 5 stars!!! Thanks Dawnette
