“Ann Marie’s outstanding professionalism and kind assistance has thoroughly exceeded any expectations I had!!! She performed a comprehensive analysis of our dog Shelby’s strengths and areas for improvement, in a compassionate and kind manner. My family was provided excellent written guidelines for each behavior area we worked on together. Ann Marie demonstrated great insight and advice to help us curb undesired actions and replace them with attentive and engaging more appropriate ones. She was a delight to learn from every step of the way.”
