I started working with Teresa when my Papillon had fear issues when I first got her. Teresa has an incredible knowledge of dog behavior, and the techniques she taught me quickly dissipated my dog’s fear. She uses an entirely positive training method that focuses on the dog’s well-being. Thanks to Teresa’s guidance, within a year, my dog loves people, and we are getting ready for the Canine Good Citizenship test and are going on to compete in obedience trials.

Teresahas been spot on with her teaching

Teresa is AMAZING. We've tried multiple group classes as well as private trainers, and finally after a few sessions with Teresa we are really seeing significant improvements in behavior. She has been spot on with all of her info/recommendations for us. Not only are the private sessions productive, but Teresa is great about checking in between sessions and sending follow-up materials. I can't recommend her enough!!

We hired Teresa to help us with some aggression issues with our pup and to prepare for the birth of our first baby.

Teresa was amazing at diagnosing our dog’s behavioral issues, helping us understand what was triggering her, and coming up with creative solutions to address it. She also gave us great ideas for how to introduce the pup to the baby.

When our baby was born Teresa was available via text and phone for advice. This was hugely helpful to provide live help and ease our concerns.

On top of being a great trainer Teresa is a lovely person and fun to be around. I can’t recommend her enough!
