“As a veterinary behaviorist I have worked with numerous trainers to help my clients address their pets behavior problems. Christine is hands down one of the best. The level of education she has undergone combined with her training skills and natural ability to empathize make her one of my favorite trainers to work with and refer clients to. When my own family got a puppy, I asked Christine to help us train him and I was consistently amazed by her ability to engage with and include my two young kids in the training process. By the end of our sessions, everyone in my family was excited about training the puppy! Not only is her training pain free for the pet (an absolute MUST when it comes to science-based humane dog training) but its pain free for the people too! I highly recommend Christine and her training for your beloved four-legged family member.” ~ Dr. Amy L. Pike, DVM, DACVB
