    I met Chelsea when Seth was 6 months old she helped me with socializing him and helping me walk him on a leash because he was leash reactive. She was very helpful, reliable and always there with any questions or concerns we had. Seth and I love her

    We brought our dog Jax to Chelsea because he was absolutely terrified to get out of the car at doggie daycare due to a bad experience somewhere else. Within weeks, Chelsea not only reinforced basic commands but also had him enjoying being with other dogs. When he goes to daycare now, he runs into the building with his tail wagging.

    I first hired Chelsea about two years ago to help me train my puppy Cali. She was a nightmare on the leash. Chelsea was able to find the way to train Cali that worked for her and it became a pleasure to go for walks after. I worked with Chelsea again to train my other puppies Bentley and Raylene. Bentley is so hyper and after working with her he has calmed down so much. Raylene is on the shyer side but she took to Chelsea right away.

    Chelsea has helped us so much with our dog pepper who is a hyper cattle dog! We started puppy training classes with Chelsea to help with impulse control, leash walking and learning simple commands. She also introduced us to doggy day care at wag which has helped him so much socially. She introduced agility training with Pepper which helped burn energy and practice following commands. Our dog is obsessed with Chelsea and is always pulling us in to play with her. She will always carve out time to go visit with him if she is around while he is in daycare. Chelsea is so knowledgeable and has helped us so much!

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

1. Gather Basic Contact information and Dog's information (age, breed, training background,) 

2. Set up a Consultation (30-45 minutes) to talk about issues/behaviors that are happening and their approaches to fixing them. As well as talk about my methods and make sure I am the right fit for the dog and owner. 

3. Advise based on the consultation if weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, etc sessions are needed or if a package deal is better for the client. Book first session and go from there.

*After each session I send an overview of what we worked on/ talked about to work on until our next session*
