Lindsey is a wonderful trainer! My boyfriend and I spent weeks trying to find a good trainer and to be honest, none of them stood out to us the way Lindsey did. Lindsey returned our call the same night and spent time listening to our concerns regarding our recently rescued dog who suffered with Human/Animal aggression. Other trainers we spoke to already had their minds made up about us and our dog before having even met us. But Lindsey was compassionate, non-judgmental and focused on finding the root of our issue. Upon meeting we could immediately tell she had a genuine love for animals by how warm and caring her interaction was with our pooch. Lindsey was punctual when arriving for training and her training methods were grounded in positive reinforcement and desensitization of our dog’s trigger in a humane way (she does NOT use shock/electric collars or any kind of brute force). It was obvious from the start that Lindsey has done her research on understanding the Psyche of dogs and her training methods were not only brilliant (why didn’t we think of that?) but effective! We have already seen an improvement in our dog’s behavior using her training techniques. Lindsey is also great at following through with what she says. If she tells you she’s going to reach out to you in a few days with some helpful tips and background information to help you further understand your dog, best believe an E-mail is coming your way! Her professionalism is on the next level and we are so grateful to have met her and had the opportunity to work with her. We highly recommend her to anyone in need of training/rehabilitating their fur baby.

As a colleague of Lindsey’s, I have been consistently impressed by her knowledge, commitment, and thorough understanding of canine learning and behavior.  Understanding the canine mind is paramount in creating effective training plans, and Lindsey gets it.  She has worked with hundreds of different dogs with every behavioral issue out there, and her vast experience makes her incredibly qualified.  Lindsey is a great trainer and not only trains dogs positively, but people as well.  Backed by science, her methods will improve your dog’s behavior and more importantly, improve your relationship with your dog.  She’s realistic, kind, knowledgable, and wants to ensure the success of canine and human.  I am so proud and thankful to have gleaned so much wisdom from her experience!
