“Johanna is a fantastic trainer! We cannot recommend her enough! We went to Johanna for training with our 3 year old female German Shepherd. She had fear-based aggression and lots of anxiety. She would lunge, growl, and bark at other dogs. She was also terrified of most people. It was almost impossible to take her on walks. With Johanna’s help and expertise, she completely changed our dog! Johanna is extremely knowledgeable and experienced. It’s clear from how she approaches training that she truly cares about the long-term well-being of the dogs. She balances positive reinforcement with discipline and obedience, when necessary. She really goes above and beyond with checking in on progress and tailoring her training to the dog’s personality and the owner’s goals. We now can walk with our dog on and off leash, she’s much better with other dogs, and we have techniques to use when she gets anxious. Johanna was the best! We are so grateful. Highly recommend.”
