“Zuri has been doing amazing!…She has completely come out of her shell. She is such a happy dog now. She can even do a few tricks! She lets strangers pet her head….We have been taking her to off leash walking paths and her recall is great. We have introduced her to lots of dogs and never had any issue with her….She loves to receive affection and cuddles up to us all the time…She has become such and easy and amazing dog. The strategies you gave us helped build her confidence so much, we appreciate it so much!  Thank you for everything Joanna! We will continue to recommend your services to anyone who has any dog training needs.” 

Lily reviewed For the Love of Paws Pet Service - Dog Training — 5 star June 11, 2016 · We had an extremely fearful dog and Joanna gave us so much information on how to deal with Zuri. She went over many different strategies that Zuri was easily able to pick up on. In one month, the growth we saw in her was incredible. We are so thankful that we took the time to invest in our dog- the quality of life Zuri will have for the rest of her life has been well worth it!!

We've had private lessons for our dog Casey (who we learned is fearful of other dogs not aggressive) and I have many valuable tools to go forward with and wouldn't hesitate calling Joanna again.

"FLOPPS has been walking Molly for quite some time now ...I think about 1.5yrs...we have a VERY energetic Portuguese Water Dog...The training Molly receives while on the off leash walks has been so incredibly helpful in managing her energy! We have also used FLOPPS for some in home training for some of Molly's poor puppy habits (jumping, greeting people at the door, etc). Joanna was very gentle and consistent...with us, and Molly! We were able to include the grandchildren and other family members in the training to make it customizable to our needs! Joanna is always willing to help reinforce these techniques every time she comes to pick Molly up which has been very helpful in us developing a consistent routine with her. I would recommend anyone looking for services for their dogs.." Kimberley B.,May 12, 2015
