Rose and I can’t tell you enough how happy we are with Luna’s progress and your training (of us and her!) All my life I have wanted a well trained dog and it looks like we are going to have one this time. Thanks again for your help and for your generosity of your time.

Dogs are individuals. You may have heard or read that more than once, but I encourage you to really think […] [ Read More ]
