Avalanche (and I) are doing much better. She has no problems at all with anyone coming to the house and has been amazing at the cottage as well…. She’s even much better with the barking. You were a God send… thanks again Lynn.

(He did a) turn around to say hi to a Great Dane. I did a quick “Here” and back he trots and whips into a sit in front of me. …The smart return made my jaw drop (although I tried to look like we’d been doing recall for months)….Thanks Lynn!

I have to say, I’m still ecstatic over how well Broc did on Tuesday night. You’ve certainly provided all of the pieces for us to work with him.

I absolutely loved Lynn & her training style. I have (with Gizmo) gained so much knowledge from this experience. I am sad that our time together is over but I take so much with me to work on. I look forward to having a wonderfully trained dog. Thank you.

Lynn is the best friend a dog owner could have. I was raised with rolled up newspapers and angry dog discipline; Lynn showed me ways to make my own puppy into a better dog than I’d ever owned before, without ANY of the yelling or negative consequences. She demystified dog behaviour and made it possible for me to forge a deep bond with my boy. You can’t put a price on a love like this.

Wally is great. He is a fabulous and easy going dog and we feel so fortunate to have him. It is very much my pleasure to be able to pass your name on to others. You are such a valuable resource and support. I believe that having a good trainer early on really helps set up a successful relationship between a dog and their new family.

Farley is 100 times better than he was. Basically any dog can walk by us and he totally ignores them…..We also click and treat around the un-neutered young males and he now can be around 5 of them (including an 8 month old boxer) without incident. He’s calmer in the yard as well. Thanks so much, Lynn.

Thank you for all of the great teaching. You have a real gift. I am really enjoying your class and I look forward to it every week. I hope that Gizmo passes this level so we can move to the next with you...

From the initial in-home consultation, we knew that we had made the right choice! Lynn has proven time and time again that she is a true professional. Her individualized, comprehensive approach to training has brought about immediate and impressive results as we progress through obedience training.

I just wanted to thank you for your help last year when we brought Kaiser (German Shepherd puppy) home. Everything you told me about Shepherds has been accurate and extremely helpful. Your advice has helped me be patient with training him and let me know what to expect. He has turned out to be a wonderful dog and has fit beautifully into our family.

I just wanted to thank you for teaching us some very valuable common sense tricks and for taking your own time to address our concerns. You’re very wise and I really appreciated your tactful honesty. It was actually reassuring to be told to be more realistic about our expectations of Jack. I started off this morning by just letting Jack release some energy in the backyard and on his long lead in the front before training loose leash for a short period of time. He seems to be enjoying it.

My dog benefited from the intimacy of the [lesson] - very quiet manner - your knowledge of dog behaviour. Thank you for all the encouragement.

I knew we were off to a great start. You worked with me for over nine months and you helped me in so many ways. You taught me how to teach my dog the basics. Then more advanced training & some fancy tricks. It wasn’t just your ability to teach, it is your warm, no nonsense, clear, simple, and concrete approach that is so wonderful. You make learning easy and fun. Lefty and I loved our time with you. We miss you already!!!!
