We have fostered 74 dogs and  Emma was the most extreme case of fear we had encountered... this was a very serious issue. Emma went from being fearful and resistant to walking on a leash around the neighborhood and giving every indication that she enjoys the activity.

It is absolutely worth the time, money, and effort if you're struggling with any pet behaviors. Do NOT wait to take the plunge. I sooo wish I'd not waited. The results far surpassed my expectations. Our lessons are one of my most favorite things to do! Thank you so much for the gifts you've given us!

It is in my Sweetgrass Havanese puppy contract that the family must work with a trainer to make sure that my puppy and the family get off to the best possible start. I was so impressed with C.C's knowledge, teaching style and manner that I recommend her to all my parents.
