We recommend Christie without reservation.

We recently adopted a Labragold ( 16 months old) from the Southeastern Guide Dog Academy in Tampa, FL. The dog had received basic training there, but was not eligible for further training, because he had a small cataract in one eye. Fortunately, he was placed up for adoption, and we received him on March 12, 2014.

We contacted Christie and made an appointment for her to come out and evaluate Flash. Christie spent an entire afternoon at our home getting to know us and Flash. She evaluated his current behavior, and gave us some very valuable suggestions for continuing his training. She then proceeded to work with Flash and show us exactly what we needed to do to continue his training at home. Consistency, consistency, consistency was the message that came through loud and clear! Within a couple days, Christie sent us a packet of information that detailed what she wanted us to focus on with Flash.

She had so many unique and helpful suggestions that we could work on with him. She outlined the various obedience training exercises that we were to implement on a daily basis. When we need to review some of her instructions, we have this information to turn to, readily. What a help! Christie is a very knowledgeable animal behaviorist. She has a sweet, calming influence on our dog. Flash sensed this immediately and responded in a positive way to her commands.

We feel very blessed to have found this person, close to home, and so willing to give her time and experience to our beloved Flash. We recommend Christie without reservation. If you need help in training your dog, this is the person to whom you should turn-worth every cent! We could not be more satisfied with her approach. Plus, Christie stays in touch with us to make sure that things are progressing satisfactorily
