My puppy has improved so much!
"Val is AMAZING!! I was referred by a coworker and I have a 5 year old lab mix and about a year old Great Dane. I have seen a huge difference in both my dogs since Val has started working with them. My puppy, Emmy has improved so much and it’s all thanks to Val.
She truly loves dogs and loves her work.
I would 100% recommend Val to anyone!"

Patient, compassionate, & knowledgeable
Val has an incredible amount of patience. She really takes the time it actually takes to train dogs, and she does so with compassion. Meeting dogs where they are, she is great at intuiting what approaches and levels of training are most effective at that time, and she shines at building on that.
Having had riding lessons from her in the past, I can say that she's also very patient with people! She was awesome at teaching me how to be a better rider not only by explaining to me what I can do better, but by informing me about the animal itself and the psychological aspects of working with animals.
