What People Say About Us…

Jody is so great!  She helped me with my aggressive dog towards other dogs, providing positive dog training methods to help improve and change her behavior.  She has an amazing wealth of knowledge and always has a strategy to help overcome difficult dog behavior issues.  Jody makes dog owners feel comfortable and confident that they really can improve their relationship with their dog.

~ Tammy Rose, Winston's Mom, Minneapolis, MN

I was greeted with warmth and a big welcome! They showed us a totally different way of teaching our pup with the Wonderful Result of a happy well socialized dog (with all people and other dogs).  They have a true spirit of love and care for your dog and take a personal interest in having you and your puppy succeed.

~ Vikki & Marshall Peterson, Seri's Family, Rosemount Minnesota

While they made my dogs extremely happy, they also kept me very happy because of their great customer service.  They always went above and beyond what I expected. I continue to be a huge fan of these talented ladies because of their true dedication to helping people enjoy the relationship with their dogs!
