"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".

"Janet is wonderful! We just got a puppy from the shelter who is very sweet, but also very fearful of the world. From the moment Janet stepped into our home, she has helped us with strategies and techniques to help our dog develope confidence. Literally, in our first session we saw considerable improvement, which is a huge relief to us, and I'm excited about all the ways we will continue to build on these first positive steps and help our dog acclimate to her new environment, and overcome her fears! Thank you, Janet!
