Testimonial 65 - Agnes

I would recommend anyone who owns a dog to take the handling class. I have owned a dog my entire life and have worked with dogs as a veterinary technician for more years than I am willing to admit. As a veterinary technician and avid dog lover I have taken …

Testimonial 64 - Haru

My husband and I have a three year old Akita named Haru. When we got her we took all the steps we could to desensitize her and socialize her and did obedience training -- all the by the book things you should do when you get a puppy. After a …

Testimonial 63 - Chloe

Our experience with Mary has been great. We accomplished so much with Chloe, our adopted 1 1/2 year old, 30 pound Pit Bull mix, that I had to write a review. We adopted Chloe in April 2018 and couldn't crate train, potty train, cat train, or people/dog train for walks. …

Testimonial 62 - Daisy and Sven

Mary has been a lifesaver to me and my two dogs! When I adopted Daisy as my first ever dog, I had no idea what I was in for. She was extremely fear-aggressive with everyone and everything, which led to bite incidents with my roommates. She was terrified of other …

Testimonial 58

Courage, cat owners I’ve always been good with cats: they know I love them and I can usually figure out what they’re trying to tell me. When one of my then 5 ½-year-old male cats began spraying back in November (now 10 months ago), I was stymied. We did everything …

Testimonial 57

I am beyond pleased with the progress my dog has made with Mary’s help! I was very worried when my 80-lb. Staffordshire Terrier started acting aggressively toward other dogs and people, so my vet recommended Mary. She came to our home to evaluate the situation and make recommendations. She was …

Testimonial 56 - Emma and Dolly

You Get Back What You Give BackPart 1 - EmmaEmma was not the right dog for me. From the start, there were red flags. Why were her owners giving her away for free, instead of returning her to the rescue like their contract stipulated? Why was she wildly jumping up …
