Debbie did an outstanding job for us. She is highly knowledgeable and was immensely helpful in training us how to get the best out of our dog. After the initial session we hired Debbie for five more sessions. During that 2 month timeframe our pet made tremendous progress. Debbie was very accommodating to schedule changes and invariably punctual.
