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! 😊

Alana & Katherine are awesome. They send pics/video of their visit. It really gives me peace of mind when I have to go out of state. My cats like hiding under my covers when they hear strange/new noises/voices. They’ve started warming up to them during their third visit.

Claws and Effect is absolutely the best ever. Alana came when my vet was not doing nail trimming during COVID and still comes regularly. She is amazing with our dogs and they are so happy to see her when she comes for their trim. I would highly recommend them to everyone in need of the services they offer. They go above and beyond for their clients Thank You!!!!

Do you constantly find yourself struggling to get your dog to listen to you? Communication can be one of the most frustrating skills to master when it comes to your relationship with your dog. Learn how to become a better leader by implementing customized techniques deemed most effective by our trainer, Katherine Galbo. From basic obedience, to aggression cases, Katherine will work tirelessly to formulate a training regimen best equipped to satisfy you and your dog's needs.

Similar to board and trains but training is done in your home. Katherine comes to you over the course of a few weeks, each day to implement training. You are not required to be home when this training is done but will have a private lesson on the weekend to go over what was taught during that week.
