Our Happy Clients

Some of the best boys and girls we've had the pleasure to work with!


"Barky was a rescue that had a lot of anxiety triggers, and was reactive to other dogs. Through working with Courtney and Austin, Barky has become a confident, happy, and social dog that we can bring along everywhere."

- Barky’s Parents

"We were most impressed with how Courtney and Austin always put our dogs' comfort levels first with any training session- they are really able to read dogs' cues and nonverbal behavior to help bring out the best in them."

- Mack & Willie's Mom

 "Courtney came to our house over the course of several weeks, and worked with Marshmallow in her home environment, kids and cats included.  I’m so thankful for Courtney for her patience, knowledge, and kindness through the whole process. She helped us lay a great foundation with Marshmallow who is now a sweet and hilarious addition to our family. "
