What clients have to say...

​​“Janet took the time to really understand the whole picture (e.g., our individual dog, our skills, events that had contributed to the reactivity, and skills he had not yet developed)… Janet's knowledge and expertise was so valuable to us. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone wanting to work on their dog's training. In fact, I already have!” -Kristin F.

“Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable about cat behaviour, but she is also a truly kind and warm person. Her insight and encouragement gave us the tools and the motivation we needed to get kitty #3 integrated into our home” -Valerie M.

“Working through the exercises she offered was helpful not only in dealing with the problem behaviours but also in building our relationship with our new pup. Janet's support and guidance got us through an incredibly stressful time, and has given us the skills we needed to move forward.  I highly recommend Janet's services, her support and guidance have made a world of difference for us and our pup.” -Laura G.
