"Had a great session today with Dogs by Linda. She worked particularly with Bebe and her annoying barking - especially at the neighbor. She helped me to understand that it's MY vibe that's making Bebe lose her mind; the fact that I dread anytime the neighbor's out and get all uptight. Linda's great with training the dog OWNER (probably more necessary than the dog itself!). Bebe hasn't barked at the guy next door since, and he was out there all day working 20 feet from our yard. All of our dogs took to her right away; she's got a real way with them! Thanks, Linda" ~Owner Sharon
"Hi Linda, Okay, have to admit we were a bit skeptical, thought nothing could stop my 2 dogs from barking and help level set the dominance order. Boy, were we wrong! Just after one session my house is being returned to normal. Linda, your patience, firm but gentle instructions (for both us and the dogs) has resulted in a wonderful calmness. We are continuing to reinforce the newly learned techniques and are really noticing their old behaviors fading. We would highly recommend your expertise to all our friends with barking and/or dominance problems. Cannot thank you enough for helping us restore order and realizing that pet ownership is and should be a joy to a household. Thank you Linda!!!" - Sarah and Roger Tirrell Max and Cody too!
"She is very knowledgeable and helpful...gave me lots of advice and information to help with my dog. She loves what she does and she loves animals and has taken the time necessary to educate herself and become very good at what she does. I would definitely recommend her and hope to use her services again in the future."
It was a great morning... met Linda and she met US and our 6 yr old lab. I think we all tired out the old pup! I cannot wait to try the behavioral methods suggested by Linda - to get our dog to behave the way WE WANT HER TO! I have a feeling our lives will be much calmer, very soon! thank you, Linda for such a great session.
I just want to thank you for yesterday. I am so grateful for your helping everyone understand Joey and his qualities and problems. I think Jane was really set on taking him regardless, but you made everyone feel better about him and confident in the situation. Hopefully, going forward, she will meet with you and take your advice. Please let me know how it goes. Yesterday was very hard for me. I am still very upset. I feel a great loss, but it was for the best. My kids are handling it better than me. I don't think it has sunk in yet with them.
With the help of all of you, he has found a new home. I am so glad you were there to share your great insight and advice.
Best wishes to you with your business. You are truly following your natural gift and talent.
The first time our dog, Piper, worked with Linda we saw an immediate improvement in her ability to follow direction. Not only did Linda work with our dog, but she taught us how to work with Piper on our own. And when I have questions or roadblocks, Linda is always available to answer and offer solutions. If you're looking for a trainer to help your dog become a well behaved member of the family, Linda should be your first call. -- Donna McSorley
"Linda was great, we have been having issues with our black lab and she came up with a really good plan to get him back to proper behavior as well as some additional training suggestions that we are already working on! So far so good and she showed up on time, as arranged, no problems. She really does have a great way with dogs and I would highly recommend her!" ~ Lisa E.
Linda has been helping New hope pet Rescue with our dogs, she is a great trainer and she has a lot of patience with dogs, we highly recommend her. Mariana Wirzbicki president of NHPR
"Linda taught my rambunctious pups how to sit and stay! Had a great session this evening and I can't wait to practice!" -owner Danelle
