Testimonial 7

I can’t thank Mary enough for how she helped our new puppy but most of all for showing me the most effective way to work with him. Before calling Helping Pets Behave, I truly thought I made a mistake in getting a puppy. He was biting, barking, growling and my …

Testimonial 6

Before meeting Mary Huntsberry, I was feeling overwhelmed by all the books that were telling me the best way to raise my puppy. It reminded me of when I was a new mom! Just like then, everything I read was conflicting and totally convinced that it was the only way …

Testimonial 1 Update

Video of Remi after 5 weeks of training. The owner supplied this as evidence of how she is becoming a very well adjusted and happy dog, which was NOT what I saw when I first met her. Remi loves playing with the other two dogs and this is a common …

Testimonial 1 - Remi

As a lifelong dog caregiver and dog rescuer, I really thought I could handle just about any type of dog issue - or rather, my pack of dogs would handle it. I always had luck with my rescues just bringing them into our ‘pack’ and letting the other dogs help …
