Introduction: VIRUS ALERT: Just so you know, I am practicing all the current health and safety recommendations to keep myself and you safe. In some cases, I can work with you and get you the help you need by phone or FaceTime. In other cases, it is important for me to meet and work with your dog or dogs to get things under control for you. The beauty of how I works is that I only need to see you in person once, no need for weekly sessions etc and I only need to get close to the dog or dogs. We humans can maintain good social distancing during our session together. After that, I give you unlimited phone follow up and can easily coach you over the phone if needed. So, if you have a new puppy, a teenager, an adult or older dog or dogs that need help, call me as we can do this quickly and safely. I’d love to hear from you. Because I work differently than everyone else and usually only need to see you one time, I am very knowledgable and experienced and the problems are usually solved the day I see you. My clients are always amazed and so grateful.

Dog Training

Martha was amazing!! Just in a few quick minutes of working with my bark obsessive dog, he was already showing signs of improvement which I never thought we would be able to do. She was extremely informational and gave my family and I amazing advice, and tips/tricks, to work on with our two dogs. She gave us insightful information about the food we give our dogs and what to avoid! And overall I can tell how much easier it’s going to be getting my dogs to where we want them, just from the few hours we had with Martha! Thank you tons Martha for taking your time to help us figure out what we were doing right and wrong with training our dogs!

Dog Training

Martha is AMAZING! I am so thankful that I was able to have her do training work with my family. We adopted a 6yr old Chiweenie from a rescue and learned pretty quickly that we needed help. It has been about 10 days since Martha was at our home and we have a more peaceful home, a happier dog, and hopeful humans. Martha is truly an expert in her field. Thank you for all of your insights and expertise Martha. We are on the right track, and Mac is making great progress.

Dog Training

Martha is truly amazing! I have a 5 year old long-haired Chihuahua who has been displaying fear-based aggression for the past 4 years. I've been trying to "deal" with his behavior attempting to fix but never with any success. Our walk path has always been determined by walking away from and avoiding other dogs. I was always stressed going on hikes with Choco because I knew I would have to face other dogs in narrow trails. Martha came by today and met Choco for the first time and we already made great progress! She is incredibly knowledgeable. We talked for over 3-4 hours about how we should communicate with dogs, how dogs communicate, how food and other things can have an impact on a dog's behavior, etc. There were so many aspects that I didn't know about how to communicate with dogs and how our behaviors and energy affect our dogs. We went out for a brief walk after the conversation to observe Choco's behavior and Choco started to catch on to Martha's training tool almost right away. What I couldn't do for the past 4 years, Martha could in a matter of few hours! After the initial meeting in person, she also offers free phone follow ups, which is such a relief for me because her guidance today made such a difference. I'd recommend Martha to any pet pawrent who is looking to do their initial puppy training, or for an adult dog behavior modification like me!

Dog Training

Martha is wonderful. We were having some fighting between our dogs along with a couple other issues. I was happily surprised for the quick response from both of our dogs to her training techniques. Thank you Martha!!

Dog Training

Martha helped us understand dog psychology, as well as how food and training can influence behavior. We were worried about having to give up our cats, as our cattle dog had shown some aggression towards both and had injured both cars as kittens. Six months later, and we implemented strategies and mechanisms to help redirect our dog’s energies and anxiety, and helped turn negative experiences into positive ones. I can’t say all the animals are besties now, but I regularly find them laying on the same bed together, or bumping up against each other in passing and playing, without worry. My stress level has been reduced and now I can enjoy my home and my pets more, because their stress levels have been reduced as well. Martha is a one-of-a-kind expert who is worth the cost. (Don’t argue, she just IS). I’m glad we hired her and you will be, too. I highly recommend. (yes, I waited six months to write this review, and I still mean every word).
