Dee Dee is exactly the experienced professional you need to gently and efficiently train your dog (which means, mostly you!). She is a seasoned trainer, knows dogs like the back of her hand and communicates so clearly. Her responsiveness, willingness to listen and adjust plans as needed, is truly appreciated. I would use her again and recommend her to anyone (BTW--she has a huge area she covers, so if you can get her to come to you, it's really a treat).

Deedee is great! I am a first time pet/puppy mom- was a bit lost and she was there answering questions at all times, even FaceTimed me to make sure I was ok and give guidance. She suggested making sure I get a camera and keeping an eye on my little guy and the walkers to make sure nothing crazy was happening and they followed instructions. I didn't feel comfortable "watching" but I got a camera and found out my walker was over feeding my pup, not following instructions and completely ruining the training! Soooo grateful for Deedee's guidance and advice! And no my little guy is doing so much better 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

I’m going to start by saying for me to want to leave a review for someone there skills are unmatched. Added a 3 month puppy husky I can definitely say before Scooby Doo‘s house of play she fit her name perfectly which is stormy. She got into everything Peed in the house nonstop she’s a beautiful, great dog but she had a lot of puppy behaviors that needed to be helped with. I contacted Scooby Doo house of in desperate need of help and fear of having to have no choice to give my puppy away which was not happening she responded back within minutes and then she came out to the property the very next day I was so impressed with her. We ended up signing up for an additional services and have not regretted it if you’re looking or need help with your dog, this is a place to come down. You will not regret it. She is worth every single penny.

I've raised several German Shepherds in my life and have prided myself in having well socialized, friendly German Shepherd dogs. So when we lost our 7 year old Sascha, we weren't ready for another puppy as we had a high energy working line German Shepherd of only 3 years old, so we decided to rescue. We brought home Phoenix who had been dumped and abandoned in the mountains and once we got him home, we fell in love with him in no time at all. However, soon we began to see that he was showing signs of aggression to anyone who was not my husband or myself. This was quite stressful for me and I just did not know how to deal with it. We began muzzle training him immediately. We knew this was beyond anything we could handle and we needed some professional help. It took a little while, but we found DeeDee. I could see progress made after her very first session and I knew we found the right trainer. We had one challenge though, we needed human interaction for him to meet different people, and needed people to come to our home to meet him. This was very difficult for us as we had moved 90 minutes from family and friends and knew no one in our new area, but we did the best we could. We had our last session in early Nov and we continued to have some human interaction when we could, which wasn't often. Over Xmas, we were to have my stepdaughter and three granddaughters come stay with us for about 10 days. I was worried how it would go and was afraid we might have to ban Phoenix to the garage the entire time they were here. When they arrived, we had Phoenix muzzled and leashed and went through the process that DeeDee had taught us. It took a little time for him to calm down, but he did. To be careful and for safety sake, we kept him muzzled for quite a little while after their arrival. We had a muzzle that allowed for treat feeding and water drinking, so we would have the kids give him treats to make friends with him. I would say it took maybe 3 hours or so until I felt comfortable and I took the muzzle off of Phoenix. I told the kids a few times to please stop putting your face in his face! Good Lord, if there is to be a bite, I surely do not want it to be in your face! But honestly, everything went really great! The kids and the dogs played and I'm not sure who had more fun! I am so thankful and so pleased to know my grandchildren can come visit and play with our dog! And to top it all off, we just found out that we may have two grandchildren coming to live with us for awhile as Mom addresses a drug addiction problem, so you honestly will never know how thankful I am!

Deedee has done a great job with our hyperactive german shepherd puppy. He had been trained by another organization prior to Scooby Doo but it was not effective. Deedee is a drill sergeant and that's just what Sam needed.
