Testimonial 46 - Lucy and Gracie

I am writing to say how thankful I was to take Mary Huntsberry’s Helping Pets Behave classes. Over the years I had taken classes from pet stores, read books from the library and watched TV shows but none of the information made as much sense to me as the instruction …

Testimonial 45 - Cubby

Once my 3 year old Morkie’s dog aggression and anxiety got out of hand I decided to take him to see Mary. Cubby lived with 3 older Bichons and would attack them for no reason at all. He began snapping at other dogs while on walks and would bark uncontrollably, …

Testimonial 44 - Lucy and Oliver

In September 2016, after getting along without any problems for 8 years, my cats, Lucy and Oliver (ages 15 and 8) started fighting to the point where they had to be separated 24/7. Needless to say, this created a lot of stress in the household for both the cats and …

Testimonial 43 - Raylan

I came to Helping Pets Behave when I realized that my dog’s obedient behavior in the house wasn’t coming with us outside in new settings. The Professional Handling for Everyday Obedience class taught me ways to help Raylan deal with his uncertainty around new things and places and how to …

Testimonial 42 - Pepita

I had Pepita less than two months when I received complaints from neighbors about her constant barking for hours when I wasn’t home. At three years old, her foster owner was muzzling her to keep her from barking even though she had company from other dogs. Unfortunately, her behavior was …

Testimonial 41 - Jebby

I’m so grateful to have found Mary! She took the time to educate me, explain Jebby’s threatening behavior towards dogs and people, and made recommendations on how to help him and correct this issue. She listened to our struggles with an open heart and made no judgement. I also believe …

Testimonial 40 - Ava, Kaia, and Achilles

I was introduced to Mary through a really good friend of mine. At the time I was dealing with two extremely dog aggressive pups and a 4 pound Chihuahua that was setting himself up to be injured through resource guarding. We started off with individual sessions for all 3 dogs. …

Testimonial 39 - Tara

I adopted my Beagle mix, Tara, when she was about 2 years old. She was a bag of bones and skittish, but also sweet and affectionate. For the first eight months or so, she seemed to adapt well to her new surroundings - she put on weight, and her coat …

Testimonial 38 - Quincy

Our Cockapoo puppy, Quincy, started hiding and behaving aggressively soon after we brought him home. Not knowing how to handle the situation, every family member reacted differently. We called Mary for help when he bit and broke skin for the first time. Her evaluation of Quincy and recommendations were very …

Testimonial 37

I wish I had found Mary years ago. My 5 year old dog has fear and anxiety that had gotten worse with age. In addition to being afraid of dogs and people, she pulled, lunged, and barked at them when on leash. During the last two years, we couldn’t even …
