Roger Lancaster

Vancouver WA

She didn't just help us to train our dogs,  she also taught us how to understand them better and how to communicate with them. Our entire pack is so much closer and happier now. I have recommended her to anyone

Prarthana Jayaram

Portland Or

After carefully observing and working with us for a few sessions, she was armed with a whole host of strategies to combat Chip's leash aggression and socialization issues. Through regular weekly sessions, she helped us get through the worst of Chip's bad behavior, do some remedial dog socialization and work through leash aggression. 

We are learning together, and I can see clear improvements since we first met Debbie.
