Paula L. Phillips – Founder
It’s such a big world out there for a first time dog owner. You’ve got your vet giving you advice, the neighbor giving you different advice, google, YouTube, word of mouth…it’s hard to actually know how to teach your dog in the best way for your dog. For an entire year I had created an amazing bond with my dog, and we are inseparable. However, because I didn’t understand training, she had a lot of fear issues that turned into what would look like aggression at first, then an unnatural need to please. She needed help before her issues of barking, being defensive, and being afraid escalated to a level where she would intentionally “go off or after” another human who was a stranger. Paula connected with me and it was just the best possible experience ever. Paula is the type of person you just want to be friends with even after the lesson. She’s understanding and patient. I don’t even know if my dog would’ve done as well, had I gone with a different trainer/teacher. Within 5 weeks Zoey had improved immensely. And not just her, but me as well. I started to understand her behaviors and mannerisms and help her before she could even react negatively. I would tell all of my friends to go to Paula and would 100/100 choose her help with our dogs again.
