"Bonnie is the most professional and encouraging trainer I’ve ever met. Not once did I feel belittled or shamed; I was treated only with kindness and respect. She is expert at reading a dog’s behaviour thereby giving ideas how best to positively impact and encourage me as well as my dog. Theo is slowly overcoming his anxiety and more happy to be in the big world, I’m so happy for him! Thank you Bonnie for helping me understand Theo better and for giving me confidence that I can continue to help him."

"I just want to take a moment to publicly thank you for helping me with my boy, Dorian. Working with you has changed my boy into such a happy, less anxious/fearful dog! Your training has taught me so much about him and how to help him see me as his best friend!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
Clara and Dorian
"I must say, although we always felt Sami was great and we had made huge strides since we first adopted him, I felt we were in a bit of a rut. The work and guidance from you over the past months have definitely pushed us forward and made a huge difference in how we relate to each other and, in particular how Sami responds to us.
Lyn is also amazed and really enjoys working with him and seeing the positive results. We've already noticed a difference in his recall response. "What a smart boy!"
Jim and Sami
"How lucky Lucy and I were to have Bonnie recommended to us! She was able to address, in short order, if it was trainable, the issues which needed attention, exercises and homework. Lucy learned so quickly, I was amazed. Thanks so much, Bonnie."
