" I'm making the adjustments you suggested and today was already a better day, she slept through the night last night with no 3:30am wake up and quietly slept in the crate in my office through 90 minutes of meetings today. Plus, no accidents! I always feel after you've been here that I've been in the presence of a canine wizard, your amazing grasp of behavior and common sense positive solutions make such a huge difference. Plus you also make me feel better and more confident, which allows me to relax and enjoy my dogs. " - Wendy

"We hired Marge for 5 sessions and she came to our house. She worked with all of us, not just Gus and really had my 9 year old son be involved. Her style of training is unlike anything we've ever seen or heard of. Gus is a different dog because of it. We even have friends that remind us of that because we don't remember him as being that scared, hot mess of a dog anymore. Marge gave us so many resources and ideas to help with the anxiety. It was also hard to walk him on the leash, he's 95 pounds and my son can walk him now. We were committed to the training and did everything she asked us to during the week. My husband and I have told so many people about her. My husband is convinced Gus is a different dog ONLY because of her." - Konomi

Marge is a Certified Behavior Consultant Canine – Knowledge Assessed (CBCC-KA) and a Certified Professional Dog Trainer – Knowledge Assessed (CBCC_KA).  What does that alphabet soup mean? It means that Marge has been independently tested and certified as a behavior consultant and professional dog trainer.  Modifying a dog’s fearful or aggressive behavior requires a different skill set than teaching him to sit, down or come.  Marge’s skills have been validated by the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers.

"while walking mocha this morning, a woman walking her dog was a little way down the road, mocha saw them, I redirected her and she followed me happily! No barking! Now the really amazing part, as we turned going back home a guy on a skateboard with his dog running next to him started down the street. Mocha saw him and looked back at me offering eye contact! Again no barking or lunging. :D She is already getting so much better! " - Krista dog-and-kids.jpg
