“THANK YOU for everything.  I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you spending all the time with us and I learned SO much.  I would love to have a bunch of your business cards so I can refer people to you!  Chester is already responding beautifully!  We went for a 2-mile walk today and he did amazingly well.  Never before has he ever “stayed” like I’ve tried to teach him.  What you did yesterday enabled him to learn and today I literally walked 15 feet away from him and he did it and he stayed until I said ‘come here!  I was SO proud of him. He learned to walk just slightly behind me.  And at the end of the walk I made him sit at the end of the driveway while I walked up and entered the garage code and opened the door.  He did it!  He was EXHAUSTED yesterday evening!  Now I see what you mean about mental exercise wearing him out.  I am anxious to start working on more new things with you…

I just wanted to extend a HUGE thank you for coming and working with us. We learned so much last night and we are going to try our very best to apply everything that we can.


Thanks for all the information. I couldn’t wait to tell you but I just got back from a walk with Tazzie and I tried out the “Yo-Yo” thing, (you know the back up thing), and guess what, it works.!. No pulling on her leash and no stress. By the end of the walk she was soooo good it was a real pleasure walking with her and I think she enjoyed it more too. I am so happy I can’t tell you. You were right she didn’t like going backward but it makes a difference. Even with people walking by. Thank you again for everything. I will keep working with her.”


“On behalf on my entire family, thank you for ALL of your time and effort yesterday. You gave us so many great tips and now we have a renewed hope for our future with Bailey! You are just simply AWESOME! Things are looking up for our family thanks to you! We will be in touch. Thanks again, Joni! ”

“Karma and I have both had a relatively good week. In fact a woman with a dog the size of a small horse that Karma hates was walking her dog while we were walking, and Karma didn’t completely lose her mind. The woman actually made a comment about how much better we were doing. Karma did get very alert and growled a little bit, but overall, she was a ton better. Still room to work, I know, but improvement is good. The other dog was probably 30 ft. away from her ( which with that particular dog is really close for Karma) and no blood was shed on me this time, so I’m feeling inspired. We’ll keep working on it!

“A sincere thank you for all the effort and expertise you provided. Dakota is so much more settled, including pretty good behavior for several days while our son Clay was here. I do not think Dakota trusts Clay for some reason, but at least we kept him under control.

Dakota becomes more “domesticated”, playful and loving each week. We think he may be a Carolina dingo dog, as he fits every criteria physically and behaviorally. We watched a clip of a Carolina and one would swear it was Dakota.”
