In my opinion, you would be hard-pressed to find a more suitable canine behavioral counselor and trainer than Paula Phillips. First of all, let me say that Paula is one of the nicest people that I have had the privilege of getting to know. Right from the start, it was obvious that Paula has the heart, warmth, compassion, patience, sense of ethics, and spirit needed to succeed in her profession. It also became evident that Paula possesses a wealth of knowledge and experience that she so willingly shared with us.
I became acquainted with Paula when she worked with my husband and me to train our newly adopted 6 month old puppy. Paula spent many hours showing and teaching us how to incorporate this 7 pound bundle of joy and energy into our lifestyle. She assisted us with potty training, behavior guidance, selecting appropriate toys and chews, stopping excessive barking and playful biting, just to name a few things. She was very thorough when it came to finding out what we needed in order for family and dog to live in harmony. She asked many questions and listened to our concerns before determining the best plan of action for us. After each session, Paula always sent us a follow-up and summary of what we did and what “homework” we needed to do in order to reinforce what we learned at that session. She made herself available by phone, text, and email, to answer any questions or to address concerns. I know that I asked the same questions more than once, but she always responded promptly and cheerfully. Her words of wisdom were always helpful. My puppy adored her and always greeted her as if she was one of the family.
Utilizing Paula’s knowledge and experience has made my husband and I feel more responsible and competent in raising a puppy. If someone needs any type of assistance or advice when it comes to canine behavior and training, do not hesitate to contact Paula Phillips. She is an asset to her profession, but more importantly, she is a terrific human being!
