    I am sorry you are having problems locating the training facility. Feel free to give me a call to give you specific directions. I don't have you scheduled for an appointment. Did you want to schedule a lesson?

    I found my self in search of help with my 4.5 year old Shepard mix rescue, Jax, after he and my other dog attacked a dog, without provocation. Accepting that Jax had become more and more aggressive over the last few years, and that my inability to deal with him was making it worse had me considering taking extreme measures. I decide I should at least seek help first, despite the financial strains. I found Linda's services to be very reasonably priced compared to others I had researched. More importantly, she put my guilt at ease. I found her methods humane and while not entirely effective due to his stubborn nature, Jax is easier to manage than he was before. I was given easy to follow guidelines by Linda and have a good foundation to continue working with him. Linda was always kind and understanding, working around my crazy schedule and being flexible when I needed to reschedule appointments.
