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 crating 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!

I’ve been trying to manage my Chihuahua’s interactions with new people for eleven years.  Darwin’s behavior was quite aggressive to new people and dogs.  This is especially true when entering his personal space.  I tried various trainers who told me he was protecting me, and also tried a few books advocating to be the alpha – none of this worked.  Then came Lindsey; she immediately recognized that my dog was completely terrified.  She explained all the signs that led her to this conclusion.  Knowing this changed my whole dynamic with Darwin.  Punishment was replaced with compassion and a whole new set of tools Lindsey cued me into.  My entire relationship with my dog has changed, and we are closer than ever.  I owe all of this to Lindsey!
