"Teri is friendly, compassionate and highly skilled in the area of puppy training and socialization. We chose Teri to train our bichon because she is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer and uses positive reinforcement. She is a genuine dog lover and was a perfect match for our family. Kirby enjoyed his classes with Teri and looked forward to his session every week."
