Gratitude


"Janet has provided evaluation and training services to our rescue organization, working with several of our rescue dogs that are awaiting adoption.  She has been a great resource for us and it has been inspiring to watch her work her magic with some of our more challenging dogs.  Most recently, Janet worked with a high-energy, anxious coonhound that had issues with trusting new people. She was able to help him expend his physical and mental energy and become a calmer, less stressed dog and more confident dog, which will make him much more manageable for his adopters.  Janet has a great way of working with people, who also need to be 'trained' in order to help their dogs learn new behaviors.  She is personable, and offers constructive suggestions in a positive and supportive manner.  We highly recommend Janet and her positive-based training methods. We consider her a valuable member of our rescue team".
