I’d Recommend Her to Anyone…

I’ve been taking my Great Danes to Linda since 2013 and I couldn’t be happier with her! She has been a great help in getting my pup ready to show in obedience trials, and is one of the very very few people I would entrust with my dogs for an overnight stay. I’d recommend her to anyone needing help training their dog with anything from basic house training to competition.

A Balanced Trainer…

The opportunities that Linda offers the handlers are invaluable. She is a balanced trainer and it is up to you what you take away and what kind of journey or adventure you have with your dog. The teamwork or partnership you develop with your dog is a wonderful lifetime bond.

The Dog Whisperer…

Linda is like the dog whisperer. She is so good with the humans and the dogs! She KNOWS what she’s doing.
