Cathy has given us the tools to effectively end stress in our dogs environment, and taught me important tools on how to properly socialize my animals, with a loving and gentle approach. She also change the way I interact with my animals. She is a excellent trainer, I couldn't ask for a more professional trainer. Thanks Cathy we look forward to utilizing your abilities as time goes by, I highly recommend her for your training needs.
This morning I heard something that, at least for a while, I thought I’d never hear. Abbey and I were out on our walk ~ she was sitting before we crossed a street. A lady was walking toward us on the boardwalk, so I waited for her to go by before I “released” Abbey. Wide-eyed, the lady exclaimed, “I wish MY dog was that well-behaved!”

Very caring and attentive. Always on time - takes my dogs out even in freezing rain. I highly recommend Ginny Kamper's services.
Ginny is an efficient and very organized person. An excellent multi-tasker, all the while continuing to watch the bottom line and provide excellent service to her customers as well as the employees that work for her.
Think of you often! Hope all is well! Maycie's been a very good girl-she's maintaining a comfortable threshold distance with other dogs! We no longer run in the opposite direction. She sits like a lady and gives me her attention while we let others pass by! I'm dating someone who has a lovely 2 y/o Corgie boy and we are slowly exposing them to one another. He is very docile which helps a lot. I think she knows what's at stake here :):) None of this would be happening so nicely were it not for your patience and thoughtful attention to her! Most appreciative!

She has a lot of patience, and takes the time to develop relationships with her clients to help her gain insights into what they need, and the best ways to meet their needs. I have attended classes where Catherine was the instructor, and found her very skilled in her field. I have used her services myself, and have frequently recommended her to friends and neighbors. I would highly recommend her franchise, 888DogSmith, as a professional, well-run dog training/related services business.
It's quite silly how dumb humans can be… that's Jersie's new motto. We’ve played ball in the front yard several times since your visit. Last night the neighbor came home and walked over to greet Jersie. She behaved like a perfect lady, obeyed every command, tossed the ball back to whoever asked for it, and even waited at the edge of the grass before retrieving a ball that rolled out into the road. Well duh. It seems that the greatest take away here is that Jersie is most stressed by that which is unknown. It also seems that most of her stress is removed by introducing her to that unknown. Damn. There’s a tough lesson to learn. It's hard to believe I managed to parent two children who are able to cross the street.
Catherine, thanks again so much for your patience and help! Jersie would thank you herself, but her overprotective parents don’t allow her online.Nancy

Rachel Williams has trained both of my border collie puppies, now ages 4 and 10 months, and has consistently shown a high level of professionalism and warmth toward them. She has taken the younger one for two weeks of training at the DogSmith center in Pensacola and also boarded her at her own home. With patience and positive reinforcement she has trained them to sit, go down, stay, and come on command, even from a distance. Just as important, she successfully socialized them in several situations and with different types of people, animals, and forms of transportation. I recommend her many services for dog training and boarding unequivocally.
