“I was looking for a trainer to help us with our very lovable, but spoiled 3 year old Bichon Frise. Jane came to our house and was very loving with our dog, and so sweet with our children! We all looked forward to our training sessions with Jane. She adapted the training methods to our dog’s behavior. She’s not a “one size fits all” type of trainer. It was amazing to watch our dog respond to her. She answered our questions and provided guidance in between lessons, and gave us great pointers. We are still working with our dog on our own, and I am pleased to say that Jane’s training is working! I highly recommend her!”
