A Welcome from your trainer

In more than 24 years of training dogs, I've seen approaches change for the better.  One of the most exciting developments has been the move to make the emotional welfare of our dogs a priority in simple, achievable ways.

What this means for you is that there are very simple things we can do for our dogs (we call them “hacks”) to increase our dogs’ peace of mind.  When their doggy needs are met, their calmness and cooperation improves, reducing the need for complicated obedience training projects.

I’m excited to share these developments with you and your dog.


What our clients are saying

"Wendy has done an amazing job with our pack of unruly pups!"

"I seriously did not think they would be trainable! In a matter of a few weeks, she is making a nice transformation...with very little help from me and in a very busy and chaotic home!"

Peggy for Gracie, Sawyer, Nikki and Rusty

Ray & pack

"I honestly cannot say enough good things about Wendy."

My dog Ginny is sensitive and very spirited, making for a rather difficult combination ...

I love Wendy's "fear free" approach ... I truly don't know what we would have done without Wendy, and we wouldn't trust anyone else with our girl! If you want expert help for all levels from a kind, gentle, non-judgmental soul, go with Wendy.
