We asked Janet to help us with our dog on walks. She would bark and lunge at any dog when she couldn’t say hi. Her behavior seemed aggressive to other owners, which didn’t help. We knew she just wanted to say hi, but didn’t know how to train away the behavior. Janet helped us and Brookie so much. She’s a very different dog on walks now. Each lesson built upon the next and Janet even answered our questions unrelated to the reason we first came to her. She was available to us and taught us a lot about things to look for in Brookie’s behavior that have really helped us. Janet understands dogs and is able to work with what you want/need. Would recommend.

We worked with Janet to help train and learn about our new 9 week old puppy. Though we watched tons of videos and read a lot about how and what to do - the personalized training session with Janet was very beneficial. I highly recommend …

Janet is the consummate professional. We talked on the phone at length regarding my dog's issues. She recommended I seek out an animal behavioral health specialist rather than a trainer. That type of professionalism and honesty is admirable. As such, I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a honest, professional trainer.

High quality, compassionate, knowledgeable! We have been searching for a rescue dog and came across the profile of one that we thought would be a good fit. I wanted to be sure we had a trainer lined up and had some questions. Because of her reviews, I emailed Janet with questions and confirming her availability. Janet called me within an hour and took ample time to discuss behaviors, options, and confirm her availability. She has an awesome Youtube channel. She is taking all COVID-19 precautions. She is a wealth of information. We didn't end up adopting the dog, but when we find the right dog we will certainly be calling Janet. Thank you so much!

Janet is fantastic. She really knows how to tailor the information to the dog and person at-hand. My young dog still has a puppy-brain (can only maintain attention for so long), and she did a great job in trying multiple methods until she …

Janet did a phenomenal job helping me train my dog who had some unique issues. She was extremely knowledgeable and responsive to all my questions and gave very intelligent solutions to help improve my dog's behavior. I recommend her to anyone needing insights to improve their pets behavior and/or anyone who simply wants to be a better pet owner in general. 5 out of 5!

Admittedly I usually don't write reviews but I'm so beyond impressed with the training from Janet that I have to share. I contacted Janet for training help with my 18-month Goldendoodle and 8-month old Labradoodle. At the time, the Goldendoodle was a nightmare to walk. He pulled so hard and it was a consent power struggle. So much that one else in the family would walk him and we often left him home instead of bringing him places just to avoid the power struggle. Willow, the labradoodle was so afraid of walking that the minute we got her out the front door she did everything she could to back out of her harness and run back to the door. She was terrified and walks with her were impossible. Fast forward and now BOTH dogs walk next to me, they don't pull, and they listen to me on the walk if there are distractions. Anyone in the family can walk the dogs and it has made the entire experience of owning dogs so much more enjoyable. It took a lot of time and work, meaning Janet does give homework. So she is very knowledgeable and straight forward but if you want to see progress, do the homework and put the time in and it will be worth it! I really enjoyed working with Janet and highly recommend her services.

Janet is wonderful! After rescuing a bulldog x basset hound with multiple behavioral issues, I sought out her services at the recommendation of my veterinarian. First of all - it speaks volumes for a behaviorist to be recommended by a …

The lessons we had with Janet were really helpful. I especially liked Janet's emphasis on teaching me how to train my dog so I could continue to improve my dog's behavior between lessons. Walking with my dog Marla is easier now that she knows how to heel.

Training with Janet was extremely effective and all of our concerns were addressed after our training sessions. Before we committed to training with Janet, she spent time to listen to our concerns and provide her feedback. Doing so allowed …

Janet is a expert in dog behavior and problem solving as well as basic obedience. Her technique and approach to training is engaging and fun! I really appreciated how thoroughly she explained the details of her theory and approach to training my dog. I have explored many methods of training and even became certified to train dogs myself! Nevertheless I was having challenges with my very smart, very confident pit bull and his desire to ignore recall commands. With a high enery dog, we need to have the opportunity for off leash running and without this solid recall, we couldn't rely on him coming when called if distracted. I tried many methods and training options, but I was at a loss. Janet agreed to help us out and I was thrilled at the immediate results! She not only trained us on traditional theory, but she helped us identify how to best adapt and incorporate real world events and rewards into the training! I am so excited to make this work for us. So far incorporating her techniques into our day to day activities is easy, fun and extremely effective!! As a dog person myself, I am extremely critical and discerning when it comes to reviewing training professionals. My background is in professional adult learning. I do not take this review lightly. I am impressed with Janet's professionalism and expertise. I cannot say that about many of the dog trainers I have encountered. I have worked with many skilled dog training professionals. Janet is by far the smartest, most professional and adaptable of anyone I have met in the industry to date. If you are looking for the best for your pup. Look no further! Janet will make your training experience fun and effective in way you could have never hoped.

Janet tailors each training session to meet the exact needs. She clearly sets goals and expectations, and tries various methods to find the optimal approach. Janet's keen observation skills identified multiple signs and behaviors that I …

I was surprised that in the two hour appointment Janet helped me with everything that my dog was doing. I didn't think we'd be able to get that much done but we did. After a week my dog was already better. I called Janet with a few follow up questions and she gave me good answers over the phone.

We met Janet a year ago to help with our two mixed breed dogs. We did an initial evaluation for about two hours, which was extremely helpful. We elected to do private training with her, thereafter, on a weekly basis at our home. Under …
