"What strikes me most about Elaine is her ability to
communicate not only with dogs but also with people. Dog
training revolves around building a relationship with a dog,
a relationship built on trust and respect. Elaine has this
ability. Dogs like her and want to learn. People training is
the same, Elaine's personality and communication skills
build this relationship, acceptance and work ethic in both
dog and owner to the benefit of both. Her enthusiasm and
dedication to being the best with both dogs and people is
an example for us all. With Elaine, training both people
and dogs is not only a science, it is very much an art."

"I had the pleasure of working with Elaine for several days.
She is a very conscientious trainer. One who is able to
focus on the details while still remembering the big picture.
That is a key element in helping todays pet owner create a
companion that will be a welcome member of the family for
years to come. Her balanced approach and common
sense style make her a valuable resource to the canine

"Henry now looks to me for instruction and walks by other
dogs in a cordial fashion. This was the best money I've
spent on Henry! I also learned how to observe subtle
behavior cues that may help in the clinic."

"My old dog has finally learned to walk at my side and to
look at me for directions. After many years of time
together lost because of how difficult it was to walk
together, now we can take him anywhere! Anyone who
struggles with a pet's behavior can recognize the value in
an amazing transformation like this in only 3 sessions.
Priceless. If I had known how well this would have turned
out, I would have happily paid much more!"

"Gryphon is an amazing companion. He's a joy to
my patients and colleagues and very, very well
mannered and civil. He seems to truly understand
the value of coming to work, and even though he
only comes once a week or so, he loves meeting the
kiddos I work with. I am so appreciative to all of your
teaching and suggestions, it's helped him to go from
"pet" to joyful companion. Most definitely could not
have done it without you." - Dr. Brian Mackey

"Titus used to drag us all over the place, but now he
walks on a loose leash and doesn't go crazy when
he sees another dog or squirrel and he can be
included with our cats!" - Jodi Soto
Prior to training, [Eddie] was lacking in social skills,
was fearful of most things and had tendencies
toward aggression in uncomfortable situations.
Then even after day one of the training, we saw a
change in his behavior - his ability to trust and focus
on his 'pack leader', to accept an unknown person
entering our home and then allowing a stranger to
pet him. Even from the first lesson it was clear that
this program was going to be worth every penny."
"Fudge Listens now. I can walk him without him
pulling me down the street. He sits and stays when
told. He's a joy to be around. I was worried about him
losing his funny personality but you were right, he's
still funny!. Thanks a million times! "
"Bentley is a new dog. He walks without pulling my
arm off and I don't have to worry about him darting
off into traffic! Peace of mind!"- Lisa Balcerak
"Within minutes of our 1st session, Molly was
walking on the heel and no longer pulling! She can
now be part of the family. We're so grateful for
Elaine! She definitely delivered! I recommend that
every dog get trained by Elaine!" - Morgan Moore
