“Five stars are not enough for Christine! She is AMAZING! When we adopted our Kona, she was very shy and fearful, especially around people. Christine worked tirelessly with her using positive praise and yummy treats. She was so patient with Kona – and with my husband and me! Kona has made phenomenal progress – if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes I wouldn’t believe this is the same timid pup we adopted! We could not be more thrilled with the training she received from Christine. I highly, highly recommend her! What a great experience. You can really tell that she truly cares about her clients (canine and human!)” ~ Jane, Fairfax Station, VA
