I wish I could give Nan and her style of dog training a 10 star. As an new dog owner 10 years ago, I did “ok” with my first dog but when I got my second dog about 3 years later that’s when things changed. Nan was recommended to me by a friend. Nan came to my home and evaluated both my dogs and “me” and then began to offer her experienced opinions of how I needed to begin. We attend her obedience classes (different levels for each dog)where she helped me to be the owner my dogs needed. Nan uses a positive reinforcement approach to training and this was very important to me. Dogs are like people in that they have different personalities and different needs, once I learned what each dog needed with Nan’s help, I was able to communicate with each of my dogs in a way that was successful. Now 10 years later I have 2 wonderful boxers one of which is an registered Therapy Dog who has been spotlighted in the paper, on TV and along with me was instrumental in starting a pet therapy program at a local hospital. My younger boxer and I had struggles in the beginning because she needed a different approach than I was using. She still can be a challenge at times but I love her spunk and her personality. She is the most loving and comforting well behaved dog anyone could ask for in a pet. Nan has never hesitated to offer suggestions when I call her with issues. I love my 4 legged babies and I am so glad that Nan was recommended to me. I HIGHLY recommend her as a dog trainer and would not hesitate to use her in the future.
