When you are ready for RESULTS...

You may love your dog, but don’t “like” him very much right now because of his annoying behavior,

You tried other training and although the classes were “fun”, you really didn’t learn much, because you are still struggling to control your dog.

You would love to take your dog to the vet/groomer/kids’ sports games without having to be embarrassed by his barking, lunging or jumping.

You wanted a pet you can enjoy as a member of the family, not a nuisance you have to lock away when family or friends come to visit.

You wanted a companion, not a “project”, but you’re ready for results, not endless streams of non-productive “training” that wastes your time.

When you want it done RIGHT...

So often, people touch our lives, and they never know what effect they have. Our work with you started us on a road to consistent communication, to honest effort and evaluation, to raising expectations and leaving excuses behind, and to the satisfaction that comes from authentic progress.Thank you for the time you spent with us. It made a difference. I hope you are enjoying life with your family and your young pup. Nancy

One of the most important gifts that Linda has given me is the knowledge that Bear’s behavior is dependent on how well (or not so well) I interact with him. Just as children need consistency, so do dogs.

The better I am the better Bear is. Thanks Linda! Doty

I was so shocked the first time Maggie walked “off lead” next to me, that is every dog owners dream! I truly know that Linda cares for all the dogs that she trains because she seemed to take a special interest in every one. I would recommend Linda and Lionheart K9 to everyone who asks. I truly am amazed by Linda’s gift with dogs! Gina

Take a minute and listen to our history.

I am fascinated with puppies and how quickly they learn. The focus of my most recent work over the last decade has been with development and early learning in puppies. I firmly believe that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and continue to create programs for new puppy owners that enable them to reduce the stress very young puppies can create. Using ideas from many of the working and performance dog cultures, I have developed and streamlined a concise program exclusively for puppies…
