My dog Piper and I worked with Katherine for Piper’s dog reactivity. Katherine was very, very knowledgeable about basically all things “dog language” which really helped me to better understand Piper. I can’t believe all the things we got done in just 5 sessions. Piper is such a better dog. With our training, Piper is so much more calm and relaxed on walks. She’s also so much more attentive to me. Lately walks have been so much more enjoyable for her and me now that we know how to communicate and now that we have tips for properly getting out of a sticky situations. I’ll be seeking her help with off leash training in the future. I highly recommend!!

I have nothing but the best things to say. We got a puppy and needed someone to help during the daytime with walks. They have been super professional with all interactions. My puppy loves them. I feel he is in safe and capable hands . I love getting photo updates with each walk. We are just starting training sessions as well, and so far that is going very well too!

Claws and effect is amazing! Alana is so great with my pup. She follows all walking instructions, my pup is very happy and tired when she gets back from her walk! 😊
