What do you love most about your job?

Working myself out of a job! Every time I client tells me we’ve made so much progress they don’t need me anymore (or generally I tell them they’ve graduated!), I want to cry tears of joy. It’s an honor and a privilege to be able to help the next dog!

What inspired you to start your own business?

It was time! I’ve had several great mentors and experiences that have helped shape me while working for others. Now, I get to help humans and their dogs without any compromises.

Why should our clients choose you?

I have a unique model for client communication using a third party app, allowing (and very strongly encouraging!) clients to contact me in real time in between sessions. The app allows text messaging, audio memos, photos, and videos to be shared. If there are multiple people in your household, everyone will have their own (free) account and we will have one group so everyone knows what is going on. When—not if—something comes up in between sessions, I expect to know about it!! You’re the one paying me, so bother me! It is MUCH easier to answer a question in a 5 minute audio message back to you than to “fix” something a week later you worked on sub-optimally because you didn’t want to reach out and bother me. The app allows you to message 24/7 without texting me directly at 2 am, for example. I usually respond within hours, but maybe within a day.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

No, I do my work in person. I will take calls ahead of time to talk with you, but I typically do not train people to train their dogs online anymore.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

I will respect any wishes you have for mutual safety. I will inform you if I am sick and offer to wear a mask or reschedule based on your comfort level.
