My specialty is working with families who want help with newly acquired or reactive dogs, high-energy dogs, puppies, packs, and dogs with special needs, such as geriatric and deaf dogs. I can also help with questions about emergencies and community resources, as well as with the process of acquiring the best dog for your family.
