“Your sessions have already shown some amazing results with Silver my 5-month-old puppy. You are calm, clear and considerate and have taught me a lot already about how to teach my puppy. Glad I’ve signed up for more. Many thanks for laying this foundation." - Cheers, Jon
"From our very first meeting, we had a connection… as did our 14-month-old bulldog Eddie! He fell in love instantly! Jessica’s approach is kind and gentle. She has special communication for sure. Eddie and I have a ways to go, but with Jessica’s gift, I’m sure we’ll make progress. Her guidance has been most appreciated." - Barb
