I've worked with a Philadelphia Eagle football player to a Catholic Nun plus everything in between single adults, young couples, families with children, single parents with children and senior citizens.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Don't go to a trainer that claims they can train any dog or give you out right guarantees. We train you to train your dog. How can they guarantee you will do your homework?
