We had a great experience with Denise! She came to our house for an initial consultation and 4 successive sessions to work on dog reactivity with our ~3 y.o. rescue pit mix, Penny. Denise trained us to use a prong collar. Penny’s leash walking issues were almost totally ameliorated in just a week or two. I was amazed at how quickly she responded to the tool/training method. Walking the dog used to give me intense anxiety. I was constantly scanning for triggers and was embarrassed when Penny would bark and lunge at other dogs. We now go on 2 walks a day, she walks with a loose leash by my side, and passes other dogs calmly. Denise was open to working on our specific issues/requests which also included taking Penny hiking on trails and tolerating the presence of my parent’s small dog in the house.

Denise is an excellent trainer. She is confident, direct, and deeply knowledgeable about canine behavior. Our greyhound was exhibiting 'unprovoked ' aggression to the point we were considering rehoming him.

Denise produced a behavioral treatment plan which we implemented faithfully over the course of about 8 weeks and four private sessions. It wasn't always easy but by the end of our time together our sweet dog was behaving within the bell curve of normal canine behavior and everyone in the house is so. much. happier.

Denise has helped us so much with our Goldendoodle, Honey. We have tried numerous trainers in the past and have not had much success until working with Denise. We noticed improvement even after our first session.

Honey’s confidence is so much better which in turn has made her a better behaved dog. We still have work to do but now have the skills necessary to be successful. Denise constantly answered our questions and helped us understand dogs behaviors so that we could change our expectations which I think was one of the most valuable lessons. If we had issues in between sessions or questions she promptly answers them through text or email. She always reassured us that Honey was a great dog and provided manageable “homework” to work on in between sessions that was well within our means and ...
