There are no words to express how grateful we are to have found Amanda. Our 4 month old Goldendoodle was out of control: jumping, biting, random potty accidents, back talking when we told her no. We read all the training books and tried all the tips and tricks from the internet with no results- things were just getting worse as she got bigger. We found Amanda through various internet searches and after talking with her a few times knew she was the perfect person to help us! After 3 weeks with Amanda, our Doodle has transformed into exactly the family dog we were looking for. She is still silly with lots of personality, but now she has manners!! She is no longer jumping/biting/and barking at everything. She is an absolute joy to be around! We have taken her to restaurants with us, various stores, and plenty of long off leash walk/runs. Our 11 year old daughter was able to walk her for the first time and is now spending lots of time playing with our pup outdoors these days. Throughout the process Amanda texted updates and pictures, and was always responsive when I was wondering about the progress. We never thought that we would need to send a dog to a dog trainer.. but after this process we are wondering why we never did it before. We will continue to bring our pup to Amanda to board when we travel- she had so much fun with all the other dogs and received so much love while she was there. Amanda has a special gift and we are forever thankful for her!
