Maureen has been a wonderful trainer for our one-year-old golden retriever. I reached out to several trainers reviewed on Yelp, and she responded quickly and was very conscientious in setting up our first session. She is friendly, naturally comfortable with dogs, and highly informed. We needed help training our dog to be better behaved indoors, and Maureen had effective, manageable tips. She was able to accurately and confidently assess the situation. We followed her instructions carefully and saw immediate results. Her rates are reasonable, and she recommended only as many sessions as seemd necessary. Our dog took an immediately liking to her. The behavior change in just one week was dramatic, like night and day. I like that Maureens suggestions are practical, without being too dogmatic.She is also highly responsible in terms of regular communication. She was open to our suggesting what problem behaviors we’d most like to address. I recommend Maureen very highly for anyone looking for a trainer to address dog behavior issues!
