“She is teaching me how to train my puppy. I chose private sessions instead of group classes in part because we were having so much trouble with housebreaking. Due to Colleen's help things are improving. She's given me many helpful tips and ideas to help us with several problems. We will be starting on my older dog's anxiety issues next. Colleen is a lovely person who seems to like all dogs. She interacted well with both of mine. I was truly hoping to find someone who would just take my puppy, train her and bring her home! Most don't do that at all and the one that did, I could not afford! But, Colleen was patient with my lack of ability and explained everything thoroughly letting me ask any question I came up with. She taught me a game to teach the puppy to come when called and that is also going well. Obviously I have faith in her as we will start on my older dog this week. He is neurotic and getting worse so hopefully she'll be able to help with that as well. It's more work than I wanted, but it will be worth it if I can have 2 happy, well trained dogs! I highly recommend her.”
“Colleen and her assistant Lisa did a fantastic job teaching me how to train my 9 month old lab mix. Their advice was practical and easy to follow and I am really seeing results with my pup. Colleen really cares about her clients and will go above and beyond to make sure that both the dogs and the humans are happy with the training results. The cost of the sessions was extremely reasonable, Colleen always showed up exactly on time, and I couldn't have asked for better quality in the training we received. We enjoyed the private sessions so much that we plan on signing up for the next group lesson class. Thank you, Colleen and Lisa, for making Ella a polite and happy member of our household!”
“The experience was awesome. Colleen is very informative and great with animals. Both my dogs and I learned a lot. I will be using her services for further dog training.”
"I was taught tools I can use for a lifetime. I am positive, if I continue to work with them - they will be better behaved than my kids "
"When it comes to fostering a highly-effective team relationship with my 10+ year old mixed breed Husky Service Dog, Aki; Colleen's intuition, knowledge skills and abilities shined. Experience with Colleen has proven that patience and consistency are her hallmark to getting the results we both needed to navigate through the complexity of crowds and urban environment meeting and/or exceeding all my expectations to attain Aki's Service Dog credentials.
Thanks to Colleen, Aki's Teamwork is indistinguishable form a pure-breed/high dollar Trainer alternative."
