“Slate is our Blue Male Chow. He has had severe aggressive behavior. Since he's been working with Theresa, he has improved greatly. He completely trusts her. He'll walk with her, do tricks, and is getting more comfortable around people and their pets. She has done wonders.”

“Theresa is a marvelous trainer. Not only does she have an innate sense of the dogs and their behaviors, but she is able to specifically identify messages that you may be inadvertently sending to your dog. She works diligently to solve any issues. The results: educated and happy owners; content, well-behaved dogs.”
Parent of Goldendoodle, Esme
“Theresa has a gift. We have seen her work with many families and many different kinds of dogs. She has a unique connection with each family member and each dog. Most important, she is effective in getting everyone engaged and learning.”

My St. Bernard, Thor, was a rescue dog from my local animal shelter. When I adopted him, I didn't know that he would be dog aggressive. I used to limit taking him into public places where he might come in contact with another dog until I met Theresa. Theresa was a godsend. She helped me to be more confident in controlling my dog and being relaxed while handling him. She trully understands dogs and the dog-human relationship. I am so thankful for the education that she helped me gain. I highly reccomend her!-

Theresa has worked magic with my dog aggressive dachshund, don't laugh he is fierce! He could not be in a room with other dogs without being restrained and he can now be in the room with other dogs and not react, most of the time. He is a work in progress but greatly improved! Highly recommend!!!

Theresa offers a variety of "classes." All of her classes focus[es] on each dog's individuals needs -- even when I have all three in a class, they each have different things to practice. With Theresa's education, she is very good at the "human element" of the training of my dogs. She knows my emotions/reactions have a direct bearing on my dogs' behavior and reminds me to relax! I have taken several classes with her and I'm always learning something new! She has helped me and my dogs tremendously to have a happy "Lab Pack."

We always learn something new and have fun and I had some issues with my bulldog being stubborn & impatient and she [Theresa] has brought him a long way[s].

I have a long history of owning dogs including 7 Great Pyrenees. All great companions. But this was the first class and we started at 8 weeks with Annie and have been in class since. Love the classes especially going into stores as part of the classes. Theresa is an excellent instructor and does not abuse as a part of teaching. My ultimate goal with Annie is to be a therapy dog which I feel we are well on our way.
