What Our Clients Say 

labsYears ago Debbe trained our dog Tucker and we were amazed at the results, so when we got a new puppy we immediately reached out to her again and knew that she was the perfect person to train our new dog, Cooper.  We couldn’t be more pleased with the training Debbe provided for Cooper.  Cooper was very high energy, not a good listener, nipped at our clothes and hands, and jumped on anyone that was in the house.  We took advantage of the board and train service for 10 days.  She sent us regular updates so we knew When Cooper returned home it was as if it was a different dog.  We were able to easily take him for walks without being pulled along the way. He is no longer jumping or nipping at us, and he listens to the commands he was taught.  He eagerly goes to his place and waits for a command to get up, so we no longer have to put him away while cooking, or trying to get things done.  Debbe did in 10 days what we couldn’t do in 7 months.  She continues to be available for questions we may have to support us in having two well behaved dogs.  We cannot recommend Debbe and Happy Tails enough and eagerly tell everyone that will listen that she is an amazing dog trainer.  Having Debbe train our dogs was the best thing we could have done for them.

What Our Clients Say

We cannot possibly say enough about Debbe! We got our first white Boxer (Arya) and we were CLUELESS! She had so much energy and we were so frustrated with attempting to train her. Then came Debbe to the rescue! She quickly pointed out the 100 things were were doing incorrectly and showed us the right way to do things. Debbe is wonderful! She knows all about dog food, treats, products, vets, etc! I have to say she was a great therapist for us during the sleep deprived nights of potty training! When we got our second Brindle Boxer (Mr. Eko), we were ahead of the game! The training with him was so easy because we knew the right way to do things. The combination of puppy class and in home training is amazing. It really gives you the opportunity to cover specific items that affect your pet in your own environment. I can honestly say, we now have the best dogs and I do attribute it to the amazing job Debbe did with both of them! Thank you!!!!!!!
