Pal, my unruly Jack Russell Terrier, badly needed training. Of course, the real training is for the master so he can then train the dog. Brenda did a remarkable job of this. Pal now not only knows basic obedience commands, using both voice commands and hand signals, like sit, lie down, shake, dance, and roll over; he also has learned commands such as stay, leave it, wait,and heel which allow me to have much greater control of him. Thanks for all your help. JRT - Pal: Owner - Al Dickson, Cato, NY
Brenda has the skill and confidence to handle a difficult dog like our Logan, who was abused before we got him. She handles him with patience, love, and is firm with him when she needs to be. She cares for both our dogs when we are away. She visits them in our home, walks them, feeds them and spends extra time with them. We know the dogs are in expert hands when we travel, so we can relax. Highly recommended.

My Boston Terrier puppy, Baxter, and I took Brenda's six week obedience training course. It was so nice and relaxing having her come to our house. She had a way of communicating with Baxter. He would sit and wait for her next command. Also, the tips that she suggests have helped me get better control of Baxter. Brenda has also been over a couple times to pet sit Baxter and when I tell him that she's coming he runs to the door to look. Boston Terrier -Baxter;Owner - Phillis Barnes, Auburn, NY
When we're out of town, Brenda cares for our two dogs and three cats, ranging in age from 1 to 15 years old. I can relax and enjoy traveling, knowing that all our "fur people" are in good hands. My young mini poodle is shy of strangers, but he loves Brenda. And her wise training tips have helped me correct his behavior problems! Poodle - Dusty; Owner - Susan Galbraith, Auburn, NY
Brenda was fantastic to work with. She helped us tremendously dealing with a new puppy and the transition into our home with three young children. Sasha really seemed to enjoy her weekly visits and still recognizes her when she comes over to pet sit. The basic teaching tools Brenda uses to train your dog carry over to almost any situation. I would highly recommend her.

Howie and Arrow mean the world to us. It's comforting to know that Brenda, with her knowledge and experience, is caring for them when we are away from home.We think Arrow has a crush on Brenda.

We can't say enough about the help you have given us in making our dog manageable. Before we contacted you, our dogs were very wild and rough in greeting our guest. Also we had difficulty walking our dogs. With your patience and systematic method of training, results of your method became evident within the third week of the six week class. We now can walk the dogs in a very mannerly method and when we have guest over they are well behaved and remain calm. It is also remarkable how well they obey commands like sit, down, come, take it, and stay. We wish you well.
