Kate was amazing with our dog Darcy!
Darcy was a bit reactive and anxious when it came to meeting new people (COVID puppy). She would often bark excessively, and we didn’t know what to do. As soon as we had our appointment with Kate, she instantly knew how to combat the issues and gave us a guide on how to help train Darcy out of her bad habits. Within two weeks Darcy was no longer anxious about strangers and her barking was to a minimum.
Kate was so helpful and understanding. I could not have asked for a better trainer.
If you are looking for a trainer, look no where else.
