Hope came to us when Jake was 11-months-old. We had taken him to puppy classes at the local pet store, but we were still having a lot of problems. Hope's lessons taught us how to teach Jake what was expected of him. She was firm, yet still gentle in her training. Jake loved Hope and went absolutely bonkers when he saw her. During Hope's first class, Jake was all over the place, non-stop. Our last session, Jake was calm and responding to commands… what a big difference!

Thanks to Hope's training sessions, I now have a model puppy. Angel is on a schedule and now lets me know when she has to go out. She sits in her bed, on a chair, or sometimes on my lap while I work. No more crazy puppy running around keeping me from working! We recently had a friend over, and I needed to find Angel in the house. I called her to "Come!" just like Hope taught me, and she came barreling out. I was so proud. Thank you, Hope…She is a joy!

Leslie and the boys and I want to thank you again for helping us to train Bruno. Bruno is doing great—our friends are so impressed when they see little Bruno ring a bell to tell us nature is calling. The entire training experience was positive for all of us. Your kind and gentle manner were exactly what we were looking for in a trainer, and we love watching the boys play their "training games" with Bruno. We have already recommended you to friends who are looking for a warm and caring trainer who knows there is hope (Hope) for every dog.

Your positive approach to training produces incredible results. After just a few sessions, our puppy, Callie, was happily responding to all the basic commands, and we were much happier owners. Now we take her with us just about everywhere, and people always comment on how well behaved she is for such a young dog. We're so excited by her progress; we are now working to get certified as a therapy team. Thanks to you, we have an obedient and well-socialized puppy, and that is what will make Callie a wonderful therapy dog.

Coco, my adopted 2 year old Pit Bull mix, and I have worked with Hope for the past year and she has completely transformed her behavior and our relationship!  When we first met Hope, my problems with Coco had gotten so severe that I was ready to return her to the shelter.  She was destructive, endlessly energetic, and, due to her history as a stray, was aggressive towards dogs and strangers.  From our very first meeting, Hope was encouraging, patient, and very knowledgeable about Coco's behavior.  Thanks to Hope's many tips, tools, and deep commitment to helping Coco and myself, Coco has become a completely different dog!  Her behavior around the house has greatly improved and she is rarely reactive towards other dogs.  (She has even been able to have some doggy-play dates!).  I'm not sure Coco would still be in my life if it weren't for Hope .  I'm grateful to Hope for her help and highly recommend her to anyone needing help with their dog!
