"My husband and I contacted Grant to help us discipline and figure out a method of controlling our German Shepherd. He was great with people he knew but very aggressive with unfamiliar visitors entering our home.
Grant was prompt in responding to our call and we arranged a time to meet shortly after. Grant had the opportunity to witness our concern when he came to our home. He handled the situation calmly and we quickly were able to trust his ability to not only work with animals himself but help us learn how to deal with difficult behaviors. We continue to use the methods Grant recommended to handle our dog and it has been effective in numerous situations.
Grant was professional in how he interacted with us and has an obvious love of and command of dogs. I would recommend his services."

Pet 10 Commandments
We found this on the internet recently (in 1000 different places). We've attributed it below, it is not ours (emphasis ours). However, when we read it, we can't help but agree. 10 barks to whomever conceived this!
ďTen CommandmentsĒ for a Responsible Pet Parent
(As told from a petís perspective)
- My life is likely to last 10 to 15 years. Any separation from you will be very painful.
- Give me time to understand what you want from me.
- Place your trust in me - - it is crucial for my well-being.
- Donít be angry with me for long and donít lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainment. I only have you.
- Talk to me. Even if I donít understand your words, I understand your voice when it is speaking to me.
- Be aware that however you treat me, I'll never forget it.
- Before you hit me, remember that I have teeth that could easily crush the bones in your hand, but I choose not to bite.
- Before you scold me fore being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps Iím not getting the right food, Iíve been out in the sun too long, or my heart may be getting old and weak.
- Take care of me when I get old. You too, will grow old.
- Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say, ďI canít bear to watch itĒ or ďLet it happen in my absence.Ē Everything is easier for me if you are there.
Remember, I love you!
