Testimonial 18

I had two very sweet and well-behaved 3.5 year old cats who were extremely scared of strangers. They’d run anytime someone approached the house and hid the entire time I had guests over. No one ever got to see how sweet and funny my cats were until Mary came to …

Testimonial 17 - Jett

I have a 5-year old rescue Border Collie named Jett who came with many issues – extremely reactive to noises, cats, dogs, any distraction really, and with a strong prey drive. One trainer told me it might be best if he was put down because he’s a hard case. With …

Testimonial 16 - Jazz, Rex, and Tux

We hired Mary because we adopted a sweet new cat (Jazz) and thought he would easily get along with our other nice cats (Rex and Tux). After a few months of trying things without any luck, we decided to look for a professional who could help us with new ideas. …

Testimonial 15 - Roxy

My husband and I called Mary out of desperation - our 8 month Jack Russell mix puppy, Roxy, couldn’t be left out while we were gone because she destroyed everything in sight, and we couldn’t leave her in her crate because she got really stressed and drooled to the point …

Testimonial 14 - Stanley

We have a 15 month old Rhodesian Ridgeback, Stanley, and have had him since he was a puppy. We have had Rhodesian’s previously so we knew he would be a high energy strong willed project. We have spend countless hours working with Stanley and generally he is obedient and great …

Testimonial 13 - Winnie

Our high-energy bull terrier puppy, Winnie, fractured her tibia when she was four months old, and had to be confined to her crate for most of the day. She was unable to play with other dogs and only went for short walks. We’re happy to report Winnie has since made …

Testimonial 12

As a new puppy owner, I was thrilled to find someone with Mary’s credentials teaching nearby. I wanted to ensure the training I attended was offered by someone with an animal behavior background and Mary has an impressive education and work history. From Day 1, I couldn’t have been more …

Testimonial 11 - Elsa

I came to Mary for help with our recently rescued 4 year old GSD, Elsa. We believe she had come from an abusive environment and had an extreme fear of people. She didn’t want people to come near her, much less try and pet her or give her treats. She …

Testimonial 10 - Matilda

Our cat, Matilda, had been in a cage at Petsmart for at least six months when we adopted her. We had two other cats and she immediately began getting in fights with our male cat and spraying/urinating everywhere, we couldn’t tell which. At first we were letting her sleep in …

Testimonial 9 - Sundae

From the moment we brought our Shetland Sheepdog Sundae, home, we realized she was going to be a handful. She is the first dog we’ve ever raised and lived with, and we muddled through her puppyhood using books and website advice until the day a severe storm put a tree …
