Lydia is a tremendous help to me and my dog. She provides invaluable home visits and exercise when my husband and I have to be away from home longer than usual. She's gentle and intuitive and my dog loves her without reserve. She is trustworthy, dependable, and a very importantly, her knowledge and skills as a dog trainer are exceptional. More recently my dog and I have started weekly training sessions with Lydia due to reactivity issues and already I see encouraging results. Lydia works as much with me as my dog, helping me to understand my dog's body language and triggers. I'm learning techniques which help in a gentle and calming way. I'am beyond grateful for Lydia's support and expertise and cannot recommend her highly enough.
