Dogs LOVE her classes!

I've taken both my greyhounds to Linda's classes, multiple times. The dogs and I have gotten so much out of the classes that I've also convinced at least 10 other owners that they needed to go too. Everyone, dogs and people both, had a great time and learned a lot! Highly recommend taking her classes if you have the opportunity to do so.

Kuma's Best Friend!

When we adopted our Akita, Kuma, we knew we would have to properly train and socialize him, so we looked into training classes...Linda was our trainer, and we couldn't be happier! She has a magical touch when it comes to Akitas, and through her patience and expertise, she guided us through the good and bad trials of puppyhood. In the beginning we learned potty training and basics of sit stay and heel. We decided to continue to the intermediate classes with Linda, and Kuma thrived. Not only did she make the course enjoyable for me, but Kuma led us to her every class. Through gentle guiding, our silly puppy matured into a young adult, learning leave it and other great tricks. We appreciated her patience and professionalism when Kuma tried to act out, and her sense of humor when we had to remind him that he was not a Casanova!! Linda has a great memory, and remembers Kuma every time we come to visit at the store. It is the little things like this that shows she truly cares about pups and their humans. She is truly dedicated to her passion.
