    Ann has trained our boys since the day after I brought them home. I chose her because of her positive training methods and not only have I not been disappointed, I have been thrilled with the results of 'my' training...because owners are the ones who really have to be trained to train the dogs! Ann is a wonderful person, I have known her for years, our boys love her and I have every confidence in her expertise, which is proven to me time and again.

    I have taken several classes from Ann--always informative and helpful--she goes above and beyond a normal teacher-giving individual attention and help. With Ann's help this first time competitor has gotten an RAE title and her first ever CD

    Ann has deep knowledge and experience of animal behavior. She is a good listener. Ann is able to explain the complexities of Dog training and assisted in my dog qualifying for several awards. I would like to see additional daytime training classes with Ann.

    We had behavioral issues with our dog and did not know where to turn. Ann was wonderful to work with. She is kind and professional. Through her patient training, she gained his trust and he became a well behaved, fun, and loving pet. He was always thrilled to see her - her positive techniques quickly won him over. If someday I have another dog, Ann would be the first one I'd call.

    We have taken many classes from her. She is always easy going and takes the timem sometimes extra time to make sure you are doing it correctly. She always uses positive training methods never seen her get "short" with a difficult dog or owner. Known her for years.

    The positive training techniques are easy to learn & apply. My dogs enjoy training & are eager to learn. No more pulling on the leash, jumping up, but attentive eager attitudes and a willingness to work and learn, on the part of my dogs and me. Thank you Ann and look forward to continuing in freestyle.

I cover a wide range of subjects: puppy training, Good Manners training, training for a Canine Good Citizen certification and competition obedience, rally and freestyle.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Training a dog is a process. It doesn't happen overnight. It takes patience and persistence. Success in changing animal behavior cannot be guaranteed by anyone. We are dealing with a living, individual creature and humans to boot! However, if all family members follow instructions, and learn to reward appropriate responses, success can be achieved in most cases.
