"In July of 2009 I purchased a 6 week old blue tick coon hound, named Gracie. She was a tiny little thing and absolutely adorable. She grew quickly and before long was 65+ lbs. When she was 12 weeks old, we completed a pretty expensive, 6 week "puppy training" class and at the end of it Gracie was as rambunctious and ill-mannered as ever. She ran through people, jumped on anything or anyone standing still or moving for that matter. At one point she knocked my 73 yr. old mother flat on her face! She would take off into the woods behind our house for hours at a time. She "visited" neighbors who really weren't all that interested in her company. She also ate anything and everything she could put her mouth around. In December alone, she ate 14 ornaments off the Christmas tree, an UGG boot and a Gregg's chocolate cake!
Upon hearing my saga of the crazy dog, a colleague recommended a boot camp style training program. I was skeptical. We'd already tried training. After doing a little research, I decided I had nothing more to lose, except more shoes and friends! Julia met with us and outlined what the training entailed and what we could expect at the end of it. I must admit I did not completely believe she could make the difference she was describing. So, to say I was shocked and thrilled when I picked Gracie up after her 2 weeks of training, is an understatement. She now listens to commands. She sits, lays down and stays when directed. She comes when she's called and stays in her own yard to play. This training has made her an integral part of our family. We can have company, enjoy a meal, and have fun spending time with her. I cannot thank Julia enough for training Gracie. This training is amazing and has made our Gracie a happier, safer dog!
It is with the utmost confidence that I recommend Julia to anyone considering training for their dogs. She has a kind, caring way with them and they immediately sense that it is safe to be with her and that she is in charge. My 10 yr. old Jack Russell had never been boarded and was not the most friendly of dogs with strangers and yet he went willingly with Julia and came home a much better behaved dog! Julia is a shining example of an honest business woman who does exactly what she says she will do. You will not be disappointed if you choose to work with Julia."
