What They Say About Maggie

Cameron Carruthers

Maggie came to my house to help me train my three-year-old Blue Heeler, Diggs. She instantly connected with him and was able to show me how to work on his impulse control (something he desperately needed). I was so impressed at how much we accomplished in our first session. Maggie is an extremely patient, thorough and productive trainer. She took her time with me and Diggs and by the end of the day Diggs was sitting, waiting, staying and heeling on command. It’s clear that Maggie has a real passion for what she does and I highly recommend her to anyone considering hiring a trainer.

We rescued, Pumpkin Pie, a 4 1/2-year-old Japanese Chin/Chihuahua mix in January. She had been in a puppy mill cage for her whole life. We were told she had a lot of fear to work through. Not having done this before we needed some expert advice. I heard about Maggie at my work, she was highly recommended. I learned so much the first day and each time thereafter. I noticed a positive change in Pumpkin that first week when she began to respond to me less fearfully. Maggie coached me how to gain her trust, to reduce her fear-based barking, to accept the unexpected movements of people around her, to be able to lift her and pet her on my lap without fear. The difference I see in Puu Pumpkin is truly amazing. Maggie is very calm, understanding and knowledgeable in her training technique making it easy to grasp what I need to work on each week. I highly recommend her!
