Jen’s bywords are PATIENCE and CONSISTENCY. She models them very well. When dealing with you, she offers hints and cues, never criticism. With the pet, she does not tolerate misbehavior, but rewards INSTANTLY the expected behavior. I got my puppy at two months of age. At three months, I was ready to give up completely. I had no idea how to cope with him and had never anticipated that handling a… Read more
Hi Jen, Just a few lines to let you know that Lucy is doing very well….slept through the night in her new crate….is going potty on her “pooch potty,” not really obsessed with Buddha, “leaves it” when asked….does pretty much what we ask of her. As you know, Lucy is a very intuitive, sweet soul. Bless her heart! Jen, I don’t think words can express how much we appreciate and respect you…You a… Read more
Hi Jen, We’re really happy with Shadow’s progress. She’s just done so well. I feel like she’s so smart that once she figured out that we didn’t want her to do something, she stopped it. We even took her on her first trip to a relative’s home in LA (1-1/2 hour drive), and she did great in the car in her crate and had so much fun playing at our relatives home with another dog that was there…she … Read more
Hi Jennifer, Sorry it’s taken so long, but here are those photos of Lola & you. We are please to say that she’s doing very good back at home. We get complements all the time with how calm and well behaved she is… We work hard to make sure she gets out to the dog parks twice a day with walks in between those visits, so that she’s well exercised. We are also working on re-enforcing all … Read more
Hi Jen, Keeva is better than ever. I walk her at Discovery Lake or around the neighborhood multiple times per week! I know her personality and how to manage her so well that I feel comfortable letting her greet other dogs and people when they are willing and her tail is wagging. We are all able to fully enjoy her and love her so much. I really can’t thank you enough!! I refer you freq… Read more
I was wondering if you could recommend a good veterinarian to snip little Ozzy in April and take care of all his other health needs. I am less inclined to stay with the Doc we have been using since the rabies vaccination incident. UPDATE: Ozzy’s training is going really well. He seems sooooo much more relaxed around the house and comes to us almost without fail. We are still trying to come up … Read more
Hi Jen, I just wanted to let you know what happened when Alice came home from the kennel May 8 to meet the new tile! Well, not a single accident inside since! I have continued to feed her in the the area we discussed. I make sure the door is open or if not take her outside every four hours or so. She falls asleep every night about 8:30, and no accidents during the night. It sure smells a … Read more
Hi Jennifer, Thanks for your help with Chip! It was a pleasure to meet and work with you. We will miss you (Sammy will too!) A different plumber showed up today and he agreed to work with me to meet Chip. Chip managed to stay down for a moment (I kept the front door closed while I opened the gate and brought him in); I put him back on down, gave the guy treats, and let Chip go. For once, Ch… Read more
Hi Jen, Monday, the 25th at 10:30 AM should work fine. Charlie is improving a lot with Steven and Bruce, especially Bruce (slowly but surely). Bruce has been able to do Charlie’s extended downs next to him now without a leash. Thanks again for everything. Charlie (and we) have vastly improved since you’ve been helping us! Walking him is fun now! And he’s not jumping on Lily, and he’s going o… Read more
Hi Jen, My little smarty pants is just a dream. I just LOVE her so much! She now sits and stays about 15′ away while I put her meal in place and then tell her to come. She is perfect. On walks, every once in awhile I stop and ask her to sit which she does. The bell thing by the doggy door we are still working on, but she has already done it 2 or 3 times on her own. Every morning she lets me k… Read more

This information is then used to create a customized training plan that addresses all of your dog’s obedience and behavioral concerns. Techniques and tools can be adapted to suit individuals or situations as needed. Even the youngest members of the family can be involved!
All of our trainers have been hand-picked for their unique abilities, education, experience, and areas of expertise.
