Quotation Mark
Training dogs and helping people is what feeds my soul. Connection is a key ingredient for effective results. Your dog is a member of your family and training your pup is a lifetime investment. Training is also so important for your dog’s mental and physical health, as well as yours. I’m grateful to guide your journey towards a calm and understanding relationship with your dog. ~ Mandy O., Owner

What Our Clients Say

“Mandy is amazing with dogs! She helped me to train my dog really quickly. She provides great customer service, and works quickly and efficiently!”

– Lisa Page

Amanda was wonderful to work with! We are first time puppy owners and she walked us through all the basics of owning and training a puppy. She came to our house so our puppy could be trained in his own environment and I was able to send her videos throughout the week to get feedback on how he was doing. It was a great experience for both us and our puppy!

Jackie Caldron Designation

Amanda was amazing! She came to our home several times to help us train our Portuguese water dog. In one sitting, she taught our entire family, including our 7-year old, how to walk her using the heel and sit commands. She followed up with sessions around door manners, stay commands, etc. as well as helping us address some unwanted biting issues. Whatever the topic, she was so clear, thoughtful, and patient. It was truly amazing to have her help… and we can’t recommend her highly enough to pet owners… especially families!

Monica Milligan Designation

I contacted Amanda when my pup wouldn’t stop pulling on walks and jump all over people as soon as they walked through the door. Anderson fell in love with her right away and she was able to teach me how to correct him. He’s been doing so much better and we can enjoy our walks now!! I’m grateful to Amanda and would recommend her to anyone!
