"After a recent stroke that impaired my walking, the local Assistance Dog Club people referred me to Deborah for help. She undertook to train my young Irish Wolfhound male (and me) to work together. As a trained behavioral scientist, I was fascinated to watch as she applied principles of Pavlov, Skinner, and the Buddha, among others who have influenced behavior, with some 'tough love' and extraordinary communication (dog and human). Boomer, the pup, rapidly developed into an absolutely solid, steady,trustworthy helper who stays by my side, steadies me when needed, promptly obeys, and gives new luster to the "best friend" label that dogs so richly enjoy. Deborah is a superb, effective, intuitive dog trainer that I can unhesitatingly recommend for animals and people of any age!"

"In just a few short sessions, Deborah turned Winston and Sybil, competitive barkers, into good citizen corgis! Our neighbors are so grateful. She also helped us work on getting them to walk on lead without pulling us. At 4 years old we thought both issues were a lost cause we'd be dealing with forever. We really appreciate Deborah's patience and skill. Our walks are much more enjoyable now! "
