“I just wanted to say hi and say thanks for the work you did with Ami. Through the summer and into the fall he has grown up a lot. The foundation you helped lay has made him a pleasure to be around. His greetings are polite and friendly. His recall is, I would say at 95%. I’m so pleased with him and his demeanor. Thank you again for all of your help and thoughtful work.”
“Thank you for all of the updates and resources! We truly enjoyed working with you and cannot wait to see how she continues to improve!”
“Thank you Tara for the time you spend in guiding us on how to work with Tano. We all continue to make great progress together.”
"Tara is skilled and compassionate. She excels at developing a focused program based on your and your animal's needs. Equally proficient with horses, dogs and exotics, Tara is the person to call for individualized training, behavior problems or training advice. If you call Tara, you won't have to call anyone else!"
“Thank you for the helpful lesson! We enjoyed learning from you. We are trying to do the games to help with the behaviors at home. Thank you also for the written instructions that really helps.”
“I wanted to say thank you for all of the wonderful classes. You are an amazing teacher and your passion for animals really shows. We appreciate all you did for us!!”
“Couldn’t walk my son’s dog on a leash. She is a 2 yr. old Lab and I’m caring for her for about 6 months. After a couple of lessons with Tara she is doing so much better!”
Hi Tara, I just wanted you to know that I think I am making progress with Karli. I had my 3 grandkids overnight and she did great. I showed the oldest one who is 8, what we learned in class. So she practiced telling Karli to go to her mat over and over again (probably about 100 times) and gave her 1 cheerio each time. Lol. Karli really caught on! Then she practiced throwing her ball, and teaching her to drop it when she brought it back. Success! Karli listened! I really want to thank you for giving me the tools to do this. I look forward to our next private lesson. Thanks again.
Tara's calm, assured training with us and our recalcitrant rescue pup has not only been a delight it has helped our dog overcome her considerable fears. We always, always learned something at every class and had fun as well. From the first meeting where it took our pup 25 min. to walk through the door to the last agility lesson where she was like "noise, what noise?" she is now a vastly different dog.
We can't say enough good things about training with Tara. She's incredibly knowledgeable and welcoming and has helped us tremendously with the training of our puppy. Thank you for all that you do!
“Training has improved my relationship with my dog. I didn’t expect that. Thanks… we have been taking him out on the 50ft. leash everyday. He loves it!!! And we don’t even have to use treats.”
“Tara, thank you again for all the work you did with Echo all those months. She is turning into the dog I had always hoped she could be! “
