Testimonials

Over the years, I have worked with every type of dog – sporting, hounds, working, terriers, toy, non-sporting, herding and mutts. I have had success with every breed – poodles, Labradors, German Shepherd, Jack Russells, boxers, bulldogs, yorkies, rottweilers, chihuahuas, beagles, golden retrievers and more. I am confident I can help you get a more satisfying relationship with your dog.
