WHAT PEOPLE SAY
chris & penny
"Badger was creating a big rift in our home. When we called Sandra, Badger had just bitten my boyfriend's mom, we argued about what to do with him constantly, and we were ready to break up over the dog. Sandra came in with so much knowledge and compassion. One of the first things she said to us was 'He's not giving you a hard time he's having a hard time' and it changed so much of our perspectives, especially mine. She taught us so much and Badger is a different dog now. You're awesome girl!!!"
"I rescued my dog from an abusive BYB situation. She really struggled with meeting new people at home and on walks. Sandra was super respectful of Athena's space and worked hard to earn her trust. I learned an incredible amount about in-depth canine body language, which is super helpful as a rescue worker. What really sold me on this trainer's package was that Sandra hires people to be "guinea pigs" for your dog's training. It great learning how to handle Athena around strangers and expose her to new people with the trainer there.
"Our dog was super reactive to other dogs and people. We tried working with a few other trainers in town over the last few years and no one shared the knowledge Sandra did regarding reactive dogs. She taught us a ton about his triggers, how he communicates, and clicker training. We LOVED her explanation of bribes vs reinforcements - it helped us understand why we couldn't get him to listen unless we had food with us and be able to teach him to listen without it. We never thought Lucky could make so much progress in just 6 weeks!"
