"I brought my newly rescued dog to Kristy because I was at a loss to know how to handle her out of control jumping and nipping at everyone who came in our house. I was nervous about whether I had made the right decision about getting this dog. Kristy not only worked with my dog, she gave me the instruction and tools I needed to help my dog find her place in our family."
"We recently finished a class with Kristy and are pleased with the great customer service my wife and I received. We had shopped around and our veterinarian recommended her to us. Glad we contacted her for training. Great value, great experience and she made training our dog so much fun!"
"I have a 3 year old German Shepherd I just could not get to walk on the leash or take for a simple walk. Not only did she help me stop his pulling, I was amazed how fast she turned King around. I am very happy now and have a happy dog!"
"I was really amazed at the difference I saw in my dog even after the first session Kristy worked with us. I have nothing but good things to say about her training and the kind and patient way she explained everything to my wife and me."
"Am grateful to this trainer. I was turned away by another trainer because of a housebreaking issue with my dog and was discouraged. She had no problem working with my dog and me to solve the issue."
"Excellent training. Liked the individual training and could ask as many questions as I wanted and have her repeat things I didn't understand. Good experience."
