We originally worked with Courtney in group puppy classes, and loved her approach and knowledge. She is now giving our five month old black lab individual training and is fantastic. She genuinely cares about our dog, and our dog loves her! She shows us, and has us practice, the specific commands and approaches we need to use to address problem behaviors like leash pulling, jumping, mouthing and dog socializing. We really appreciate her ability to explain the psychology and rationale behind each training method as well as helping us recognize, understand and respond to our dog's behavior and cues. In one thirty minute session our lab puppy calmly walked to Courtney multiple times without any leash pulling or jumping—big progress for us! Highly recommend Devoted Dog Training.
